This is a wonderful set. The details of the design are amazing. There is a drawer to hold the book, backdrops, and characters which makes it easy to keep everything together. It folds out easily into a stage and the backdrops are a breeze to slide into place. The dancers are on long sticks so they may be moved around the stage from above and there are holes in the stage so that characters may "stand" while other characters are in play. Everything came preassembled and it was ready to be played with right out of the box.

As if all of this wasn't good enough, there is a great book that comes along with it. It not only tells the story of the ballet in a simple narrative, it also has information about the story's history, the composer, and the choreographer. At the beginning of each new scene, the book shows the reader what characters and what backdrop should be used and the book even cues what track on the accompanying CD should be played! The illustrations are beautiful and the book can be enjoyed on its own without the play set.

My daughter is ten and she loves it; I certainly wouldn't think that eight is the oldest age that this set can be enjoyed. If a child is a serious student of ballet, I would expand the age range to the early teens. After seeing my daughter's copy, her repertory teacher is ordering it to use in company classes. If you are buying something for a child who is interested in ballet, I definitely recommend this product.

With a three dimensional theater set, complete with interchangeable backdrops, curtains, scenery, and characters, this is a truly imaginative and interactive set that allows children to read the story of Sleeping Beauty, listen to the excerpts from the classical symphony on the CD, and act out the ballet using the 3D theater. As a parent, it helps to play along with your child, or at least be on hand, because kids are going to most likely be frustrated and lose patience with the theater and its set pieces. If you follow the guidelines in the book, and pause the CD in between Acts to change the sets, from start to finish the whole play takes about 30 minutes. For smaller children this is essential because they won't know what to do. If you take the time to sit with them they will enjoy it.

This fold out book/theatre is wonderful for my five year old daughter. She plays with it every day since Santa brought it for Christmas. It's great imaginative play, and it's great for familiarizing her with the art of ballet and the classical music of Tchaikovsky. The backdrops, sets, and dancing figures are enchanting. I can see my daughter playing with it for months and years to come.

I bought this for my granddaughter but I at 61 found it so delightful and fun that I had to do my own performance of the ballet for myself. The theater, stage props and people along with the music are easy to use and very artistically done. My granddaughter can later use the theater, if she wants, to perform her own plays with scenery, characters and music.

I purchased this to entertain young children and to introduce the ballet to them.

The item arrived in a slightly battered state, which was below my expectations. Some parts of the theatre are prone to tearing too.

There are scenery changes for the Prologue, Act One, Act Two and Act Three. Scenery changes for Act One and Two come in two pieces, a front panel and a backdrop. I would have preferred it if there were two individual slots spaced apart to slot them instead of slotting both pieces in the same area.

Also, the slot on the 'floor' of the theatre is located a bit too close to the area where the scenery will meet the floor. Characters like the Queen etc which are meant to be slotted appear to be leaning behind instead of standing up straight.

While playing the music for each part of the ballet and having the characters dance around, it's best to pause the CD while you change the scenery as it's a bit difficult to make the changes rapidly.

Having young children twirl the characters on sticks and moving them about kept them very entertained.

I highly recommend all of the Ballet Theatres - Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and the Nutcracker Suite. They are updated versions of paper dolls with a beautiful cd to play as the children help the dolls dance and act out the story. My two granddaughters (ages 8 and 12) have spent many hours playing with them and the dolls have held up well. They both know the stories of the ballets and enjoy recreating them very much. A nice box is included to keep everything together. They are great for a nice afternoon activity.
