Tweenies are simply enchanting.
Tweenies ( the Enchanted Toyshop at The Journal Tyne Theatre
The last time she saw the Tweenies, at the Metro Arena, my little girl was around eight-months-old and spent the show bouncing on my knee.
This time, at The Journal Tyne Theatre, and having just turned three, she was dancing in the aisles.
She was as enchanted by Jake, Bella, Milo and Fizz as the toy shop the foursome travelled to in their performance.
A magic toy shop, once owned by Bella's grandmother, took them to see a clown, a spaceman, a popstar, and a couple of theatre-going mice.
But it was for Doodles, their dog, near the end of the show that the children in the theatre reserved their biggest cheer.
The theatre was awash with Tweenie glow sticks and Tweenie clocks, waved enthusiastically by the younger members of the audience as the Tweenies sang their final song. I didn't have to ask my toddler whether she'd enjoyed herself: "When are the Tweenies coming back again Mummy?" she said, making me promise she could come see them as soon as they return.
