Our family had the privilege of seeing the dress rehearsal for the Get Set For Life Tour in Toronto, presented by Kids’ CBC this weekend.
I think this just may have been the highlight of my 2 1/2 year old daughter’s life thus far! She got to see two of her favourite television characters (Curious George and Bo from Bo on the Go) LIVE!
The show was hosted by Sid and Patty and featured Curious George, Bo on the Go along with many other Kids’ CBC characters such as Mamma Yamma, Saumon de Champlain, Drumheller and Captain Claw.
The children in the audience were asked to fully participate by singing and dancing throughout the entire show. The energy in the room was incredible! It was very clear that the audience was enjoying themselves, children and adults alike.
The music, videos, costumes and props were colourful, eye catching and full of life.
The only negative thing that I have to say is that Curious George didn’t make a sound–something that I know my daughter enjoys on his show (you can tell by the monkey sounds she makes along with George).
We definitely had a great time as a family during the show. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the tour to families with young children.
The tour’s next stop is in Brampton on February 9th, 2008.
