Cuusoo of the Week : Medieval Travelling Theatre

In this section we help promote LEGO Cuusoo idea’s to help them reach the 10,000 likes needed for their idea to get created! This week we feature the idea called “Medieval Travelling Theatre” created by Bobsy. Here’s what the creator had to say about the idea:

“Roll up! Come one, come all, ladies, gentlemen, little ones too! See wonders that you have never imagined! Kings, knights, princesses, perils, plots, passion, all conjured here tonight on our humble stage! Watch in amazement as we bring you tales of wonder, horror and amusement like you’ve never seen before!”

Medieval Travelling Theatre
Approx piece count: 275

Estimated retail price: $20-35
Age range: 8-14

The Medieval Travelling Theatre is a standalone model that could happily fit in with any medieval or renaissance collection of Lego models. It depicts a mobile theatre company that housed in a single horse-drawn carriage. When travelling, the stage folds up into the left-hand side of the carriage, then folds down again whenever a performance is due. When open, the stage is supported by three feet that keep it level with the ground.

The set comes with two minifigures – one male and one female (yes, realistically no women were allowed to act in the middle ages, but somehow I don’t think Lego want the controversy of releasing a children’s toy featuring cross-dressing!). And to help them bring the magic of theatre to their medieval audiences? A whole host of props, kept in the barrels, chests and crates piled on top of the carriage.

I believe this is an ideal set for Cuusoo. Not only is the final product affordable and reasonably-sized, it has tremendous play value. It suits medieval and renaissance collections, but can happily interact with minifigures and sets from many different themes. It’s an ideal platform for many of the characters from the collectable minifigures to come on stage and get their 15 minutes of fame.

I hope you agree this is worth pledging your support. To see more pictures of the Medieval Travelling Theatre please check out my Flickr feed!
