#TBT to last Thursday when we hosted an evening with some friends at FROZEN on Broadway. In addition to sharing the show with our friends, we also got to share some of our first-ever Petite Seat swag. And boy was it awesome!
.
Big thanks to @lovelettersgifts for helping us pull together these travel-sized reusable snack bags! We love how these turned out. After all, one of our top tips for parents is to BRING A SNACK! It doesn’t matter the length of the show all kids will come out starving, proven fact. We hope our friends are enjoying their snack bags and putting them to good use!

🌟 THEATRE TOUR! 🌟
New location? Not a problem! We are taking you on a tour of THE FLEA THEATRE, where we attended Pillowland over the weekend. Read on for our Petite Seat Tips on this super family friendly space, and take the stress of the unknown out of your trip to the theatre!
.
🎭 There are quite a few subway stops within a 5-10 min walk from the theater. We took the 4/5/6 to Brooklyn Bridge City Hall and easily did the the walk with our three year old and no stroller. You can also take the A/C/E, 1/2/3, and J/M/Z to Chambers Street or the R/W to City Hall.
.
🎭 When you arrive at The Flea, the box office is right inside the main doors. For Pillowland, the pre and post show activities take place in the lobby / box office area. It was great to get our little ones busy with the pre-show fun while we squared away checking in.
.
🎭 There is one hallway off of the lobby that leads to an area for stroller parking and for the gender-neutral restrooms.
.
🎭 Pillowland is playing in The Pete on the ground floor, so there is no up and down necessary. For future reference, there are two other theaters in this space: The Siggy on the lower level and the Sam Upstairs. There are stairs and an elevator for access to those other theaters.
.
🎭 Before entering The Pete for Pillowland, all audience members, regardless of age, need to remove their shoes and leave them in the lobby area. There's a designated shoe "parking" for just this.
.
🎭 Pillowland begins its performance in the lobby, utilizing that space and the entry into The Pete as part of the experience. The intimate theater, is small, but cozy. Children, and parents if they'd like, are encouraged to sit on the floor around the "stage". There are also chairs set up around the stage for anyone who would prefer not to be on the floor.
.
🎭 New York City Children's Theater's Pillowland will be playing at The Flea through April 19th, 2019. Use code PETITE20 for $20 tickets (before fees). You can get all of our tips on the show and a link to buy tickets by visiting our website listed in our bio.

The fourth and final show we took in this past weekend was THE AMAZING STORY MACHINE, playing at The Tank, on 36th St, just off 8th Ave.
.
This show features multiple styles of puppetry, live music, and physical comedy - for this show we brought along our 6 year old, and he LOVED it! (the 3 year old probably would have enjoyed it too, but she's not quite ready for multiple shows in a day...we need to build her stamina!). Only two weekends of performances left (8 shows!), so read on for more info and click on the link in our bio to purchase tickets!
.
📺 SUMMARY: The Grimm family is on the verge of unveiling their amazing new Story Machine, which runs on steam and dreams and promises to revolutionize how stories are told and how people connect. When their fabulous contraption malfunctions, they have to invent a new way of storytelling on the spot, using puppets and help from the audience. The Grimms explore some of their favorite fairy tales, including The Hare and the Hedgehog, Hansel and Gretel, and The Brave Little Tailor.
.
📺 Best for Ages 4+
.
📺 Running time is approx 45 minutes (no intermission)
.
📺 Stroller parking is available
.
📺 Stick around after the show to meet some of the puppeteers/actors. You may even get lucky and get a little lesson in puppetry!

ABOUT THE SHOW: In 2013, the Disney animated film Frozen took the world by storm.

Yesterday we got to experience a taste of family theatre all the way from Nairobi, Kenya - without leaving NYC! TINGA, TINGA TALES is the current production at New Victory Theater, playing through this Sat, Oct 20th (2 performances left on Sat!). It is a bright, colorful, musical tale of Monkey, Giraffe, Elephant, Lion and friends and their adventures in the African jungle.
.
Read on for some Petite Seat Tips and click on the link in our bio to find out more and purchase tickets:
.
🐵 Best for ages 4-7 though totally appropriate for those just below or above the range as well (nothing scary - just one very brief moment when the lights go out between scenes)
.
🐵 Performances runs 70 minutes with no intermission
.
🐵 Aim to arrive approx 30 minutes early for pre-show activities. The main lobby is downstairs after you come in, and you'll find teaching artists where you can color and learn songs
.
🐵 Head back down to that same lobby after the show for a meet and greet and photo ops with the cast
.
🐵 Fun Fact: Eric Wainaina, who performs as The Monkey in TINGA TINGA TALES – THE MUSICAL, is a pop star who has created some of Kenya's top-selling records. His first album, Sawa Sawa, sold more than two million copies!

This sweet little collection of petite seats is a great example of how to incorporate some whimsy and fun into your home in a small yet functional way. #petiteseat #animalprints #whimsicalandfun #designtip #themoreyouknow

👉 Petite Seat Tip #581: Never underestimate how far you will have to carry your toddler to get from the bus stop to the theatre. Apparently they melt if their feet touch wet ground. Best not to wear heels. 🤦‍♀️ 👠.

This was the first of a FOUR SHOW weekend for us!! Check our stories and posts the rest of the weekend to see what we are up to - in sensible flats, of course!

We are often asked about first Broadway shows for kids. ALADDIN is one of our go-to recommendations. (In fact we took one of our own for his 1st Broadway experience a few years back!) It's the right amount of live entertainment thrill mixed with fun, magical moments and the storyline is great for younger audiences (and moms and dads too!).
.
Visit ALADDIN under the Now Playing section of our website and read on for some Petite Seat tips to make your trip to Agrabah magical:
.
🎟Mezzanine seats offer a great view but best to avoid row A - the safety bar will likely be in the way of smaller audience members. Additionally, the balcony in this theatre is steep - stick to the orchestra or mezzanine if you have a fear of heights.
.
🎟All children require a ticket, regardless of age
.
🎟Booster seats are available on a first come first serve basis. See an usher when you arrive at the theatre
.
🎟There are a few loud noises and special effects (the "spooky voice" and the voice of the Cave of Wonders). Some sword fighting in action sequences, but mostly done as part of comical choreography.
.

Yesterday we took the kids to see the movie Smallfoot, but there is a different Yeti making his way to NYC soon. YETI, SET, SNOW! is the newest production to open at Central Park's Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre - beginning on Nov 16th and playing through Feb 24th, 2019. Click on the link in our bio to purchase tickets and read on for a summary and Petite Seat Tips! .
This is the story of a young girl named Widget, and her friend, Twig, who encounter a yeti named Pascetti on the first snow day of the winter season. Pascetti, who lives on a mountain top nearby, dislikes the snow. Through songs and snow day activities, Pascetti discovers not only that snow can be fun but also the value of friendship.
.
⛄ Recommended for Ages 2-9.
.
⛄️ This is a very small theatre and children are encouraged to sit in the front and the middle, while parents are urged to sit along the sides or the back. Kids who want to stay with their parents can sit along the sides or in the back few rows
.
⛄ The theatre is climate controlled, so bring on the cold! Stroller parking is available inside the cottage
.
⛄ Tickets do tend to sell out a day or two before most performances, and further out for more popular dates. If you have a specific date you want to attend, do not wait until the last minute to purchase your tickets
.
⛄ The closest entry point into Central Park is at 81st St and Central Park West. From there, it's approx a 5 minute walk to the cottage.
