The good people at Swinton Insurance have recently released a new TV ad featuring Britain's Got Talent winners, Attraction. At this point I must confess to not knowing who they were until now since I don't watch the show but having investigated - what they do is really rather lovely.
I have my lovely husband to thank for these pictures since I was busy behind the scenes with the director.
N chose the set of puppets which came with the fabric and also the 'fairytale' set. Daddy very much enjoyed listening to our story and N really got into the swing of things - he was so excited he spent a lot of time running out front to see the beautiful shadows for himself.
|So neatly put together|
Our story saw the princess captured by the mean witch and rescued by the knight at the King's request. The fairy provides a little magical help and even the dragon turns to the good side to help out. Donkey and the Knight save the princess, the witch is forgiven and the little man marries the young couple in front of the castle.
That is not the end of our story however because the princess decides that she would rather become a vet and help all the animals in the forest because sitting on a throne is a bit boring - so that's exactly what she does while her husband, the knight works as head of security at the castle. Bonus points to my boy for his feminist slant on a fairy story I think!
This was so much fun and I'm not sure where you could buy such a kit but I urge you to investigate since this is one of those toys which gets the whole family on board- a proper, old-fashioned game to enjoy, a different story every time and hours of fun for years to come I would imagine.
Thanks Swinton Insurance!
