Review from Lizz Farmer

It was wonderful! The actors were all divine, esp the little girl, her uncle, and the toys, and the script was light and funny while also being moving - very enjoyable!

Review from Jessica

This is definitely a House creation, in the best way possible. I had high expectations from them after seeing The Sparrow, and this exceeded them! It managed to retain humor and cuteness through the dark twist they put on it. Awesome!
