Some of our biggest In the Night Garden Live fans are parents! To find out why, we talked to mums and dads after the show and made this short video.
Parents give several reasons why they enjoy it so much. They often start with how their child was “mesmerised”, or how they’d never seen their child sit still for so long.
Mums particularly love watching the look of delight on their child’s face when their favourite character comes on stage. If Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, Makka Pakka and friends are really important to your little one, this can be the moment that brings a tear to your eye!
In the Night Garden Live is cleverly designed for all ages, so young babies enjoy it as well as older children. We often hear from parents who worried their child may be too young for a show, but they absolutely loved coming to In the Night Garden Live.
Parents also mention the memories they make at In the Night Garden Live are something to “cherish forever”.
See why one mum in this video is so “happy” to have seen her child “enjoying himself so much”, and another talks about how much fun it was to see her kids’ “excited” faces.
Children grow up fast and it’s not often that you can do something really special that both parents and very young children enjoy together. So many parents describe this experience as something they will never forget.
I will always remember the look on his little face when the show started :) x x x
