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 10 scenic backdrops and 12 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!!!
