We’ll choose the two winners on Friday afternoon, mamas! Good luck!


  1. My son is 5 and we are amazed at his imagination. He plays w/his stuffed animals, toys, balls, etc…as if they are real and is very active in story telling. We often laugh because we think he has a career in theatre or writing!

  2. My 5 year old daughter plays with our shadows all the time. We have our shadows hug and hold hands and sometimes she karate kicks my shadow 😉 Her stuffed animals are her imaginary friends and they have fun with their shadows too! This play would be a perfect surprise for her.

  3. My daughter is 3.5 years old and has an awesome imagination! She has imaginary friends, imaginary babies, is always pretending to be a teacher, etc. She would love to see this play with me!

  4. My daughter, Kaylin, is 6 and would love to see a show at the WAC. Her imagination is huge and it’s always a great thing to see her pretend.

  5. I have custody of my 4 and 3 year old grandchildren, and I would love to take them to WAC I think they would enjoy it.

  6. All 3 of my kids prefer pretend play over playing with toys. The dress up box is the most used toy in our house.

  7. My son Jonas has a great imagination. One of my favorite things to do is to ride in the car with him and listen to him play with his toys all by himself. He can turn almost anything into a space ship, a car, or a gun to shoot. He’s an only child, so he has had to learn to use his imagination to keep himself entertained. 🙂

  8. My littles bring everything to life, Legos, cars, baby dolls, super heroes, they all have names and are friends. I live to listen to them play and make sounds, creating life for an object. Super creative littles!!!

  9. My daughter is 5 and always always using her imagination. She’s always in her own world, talking to herself or others, pretending to be a queen or a lion. She goes to the bathroom to brush her teeth bc I told her to, looks in the mirror & has a conversation with her reflection, and forgets what she went in there for!

  10. My 6 yr old daughter loves pretending she’s the teacher and her collection of Beanie Boos are her students. So cute to watch her “teach” lessons to her classroom of stuffed animals.

  11. My girls are 7 and 4 and they are always pretending they are off oin another country exploring somewhere!

  12. My son is almost 6, and he is fun to listen to in the kitchen running his cars all over the counters. There are imaginary explosions, crashes, and show downs! It is entertaining!!

  13. My 4 year old loves to have tea parties with her stuffed animals like I remember myself doing when I was little. I sneek peeks around the corner watching her dress them in her clothes and having the best “imaginary” tea party ever!!

  14. My four year old daughter imagines her baby dolls are alive all the time. She would really enjoy to attend this.

  15. This would be perfect for my very imaginative 3 girls! They can turn sticks and leaves into imaginary objects– don’t know why we buy them so many toys!

  16. My 4 year old pretends she is the babysitter with her baby dolls and stuffed animals.

  17. my son is 7 and has always had the most wonderful imagination! I love to read the stories he writes. His imagination lies most in what he thinks animals think 😉

    He’s always asking if his pet cat would like to eat out with us, or if the dog would like going to the dentist. We just recently got to chickens and he thinks they are asking him to roam free at a local park :)—-which they probably are !

  18. My son, who is now 13, use to play with his stuffed animals like Andy in Toy Story. They would make quite a ruckus. I miss these times. He reminded me a lot of myself when I was little. Such a great imagination.

  19. My daughter started at age 2 using her extraordinary imagination to make invisible food and eat it and then serve it to her grandfather.

  20. Both of my kids have super active and creative imaginations! They can play for hours making up role play, telling incredible tales, and creating fun for theirselves. My favorite is my older daughter had an imaginary friend named daisy who was seriously as much work as another real child! Haha! And- she was always the one to get blamed for anything that happened. 😉 daisy took us on lots of adventures and created lots of fun, helped us through two moves, went to preschool, celebrated a new baby and prepared us for school. I was sad when my daughter went to kindergarten and realized one day that daisy must have gone to love with another child who needed her when mine moved on.

  21. My 6 year old daughter and 8 year old son love “pretend” playing. My daughter can play hours by herself and her dolls or Barbies just talking up a storm. We would love to win the tickets.

  22. All of my kiddos have always had a very active imagination! They crack me up, every single day! My favorite thing to do is sit and listen to them (when they don’t know I’m listening). 🙂

  23. My five year old daughter is creative and obsessed with organizing things into categories. She has about twenty “beds” for her assortment of babies all lined up in a row. She calls it her “home for girls”!
