Hamlet in a box!

For my birthday Miss T. has made me an amazing present. It's Hamlet in a box. When teaching Shakespeare I normally borrow the girls toys, Barbie dolls, Playmobil, Action Men etc and put on a small production of Hamlet. Now I don't have to hunt around any more for an appropriate toy to play Queen Gertrude or Polonius, I've got them all in a shoe box, each figure carefully crafted and placed in it's own labelled and lined box. The shoe box itself turns into a stage where the pieces can be moved around to create different scenes. She has even included details such as swords, a horse, a throne and a cup of poison. No wonder I haven't been allowed into her room for the last few weeks!

Thank you Toots! I love it and you!
