Oliva Fans Celebrate!!! 13 Nov 2004
By Gita Ladd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Ian Falconer has returned to his rich roots of set designing, and created an environment for Olivia fans to truly relish! I just bought this set today, and it is wonderful. The main stage is sturdy and cleverly put together. There are spaces above and to the sides for character placement and manipulation. The included drop down sets are beautifully evocative charcoal drawings, and there are even two extra blank sets to inspire budding scenic artists. A large built in drawer allows for storage of all the included scenic backdrops and figures, with plenty of room left for creations of ones own. The included figures are sturdy and beautiful renditions of classic Olivia poses, with several original to this set and well in keeping with the Porcine Diva we have all come to know and Love!

This lovely set perfectly captures Olivia's feisty zeal for life and of course the theatric, which made the original book so inspiring to all who have ever known, (or been) little girls.

I love the fact that Falconer returned to his roots with this one, and brought out his little diva in a setting which will inspire countless ideas and hours of fun for Olivia fans young and old.

In an era where so many toys are expected to stimulate without themselves stimulating creativity, this play set is in a class by itself. Teatro Olivia is truly an item which will provide a myriad of expressive possibilities! Thank You Mr. Falconer!!!

The ultimate child fantasy! 16 Nov 2004
By James Ferguson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
With elaborate fold-out sets, six Olivia paper dolls and a Playbill that offers up plot summaries, your child can create a world of his or her own for Olivia. In addition, there is extra stock so that kids can design their own backdrops, letting their imagination soar. This is a wonderful package, perfectly timed for the holiday season, and sure to be a winner under the Christmas tree.

A Hit With My Kids! 22 July 2005
By Joan E. Flora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought "Teatro Olivia" at the beginning of summer, and my kids have spent hours playing with it. The material is sturdy and has taken a lot of play from my children and their friends. Extra blank backdrops are included in the package, so my children have been busy making up new plays to present--Sponge Bob, Harry Potter, Anne of Green Gables and so on. Thanks for a great educational toy!

Hours of Fun 19 Feb 2008
By T. Streett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My 11 year old daughter LOVES the "Olivia" books and we thought this would be a great gift as well. She enjoyed the process of setting up Olivia, the cast and doing some shows for us. She's played with it a few times since, but we have to encourage her to take it out of the bookshelf.

Might be a bit better for a younger Olivia fan, but a great push to imaginative play!
