Yesterday morning, the Today Show featured the Musical Nutcracker Dress by Acting Out, and right on time, the UPS truck rolled up with our first shipment.
When I first heard about musical dress-up I was very wary. Dress up is one of the most open-ended, creative play activities, and I wasn’t sure that adding music could really improve the experience. But when I saw a sample of the Musical Nutcracker Dress by Acting Out, I found it truly charming. The dress itself is beautiful, with a full, twirly skirt that is long enough to look great on a range of sizes. The dress is also satin-lined to prevent itching. The music device is hidden inside the waistband of the dress, and once it is manually started, it will continue to play as long as your little dancer is in motion. Yes, it has an off switch, but the quality of the music will really surprise you. You can actually hear a clip on the company’s website, www.actingoutdressup.com.
