Creators, theatre industry workers Chris Marcus and Damien Stanton, said: "We are continuing to think of new ways to help support the theatre industry and we wanted to make a product which was accessible to children so they too could show their support. We have some amazing shows as part of our design which are really loved by, younger audiences so we wanted to make products they would love (and could fit into) so they could also show their support for the theatre community! After all this is not just for adults but for all lovers of theatre!"
