Not sure what I was expecting but found the whole experience really quaint. The theatre is quite old and some of the puppets look like they have seen better days. The puppeteer is visible the whole time and the narration is recorded. The older children in the audience seemed to enjoy it so that's the most important thing. Think my 18 month old was a little young for it, she was more interested in looking at some cuddly toys on the stage than the puppets. Think it is probably more suited to 3-5 year olds who like good old fashioned fun. Just a note you have to leave your stroller (buggy) outside the entrance.
