  10. Jennifer Mosgrove says:

    I have been looking for a giveaway for these tickets ever since I saw the commercial for the show! My son is in love with all these shows & we would have such a great time!! Keeping my fingers crossed to win!!

  11. Jennifer says:

    my son tells me everytime the commercial is on he wants me to buy tickets and runs over to the computer. We goto the website and watch the commercial over and over and over again. My children would LOVE to see this.


  12. Beth says:

    So glad the TV commercial is on the website – Just need a replay button – My daughter loves it 🙂

    I found at the site a picture of the entire Cast of Storytime Live, including Dora in her Princess Costume! Photo credit- Carol Rosegg

  14. Michelle says:

    OH my gosh, my daughter would LOVE THIS!!!! We almost bought tickets last month then we thought we’d be out of state but that changed. I was sooo happy to see AkronOhioMoms offering a giveaway for this event! I really hope we get to take her to this as Dora and Boots have become her new favorites (Blue’s Clues, Little Bear, etc have been abandoned over the past few weeks!).

    I was a little worried how long this event would be and if she’d be okay sitting through it all. I saw on the website that it’s only about 1 hr 15 min so that’s perfect with little ones attention spans!

  15. Patti Hart says:

    Oh my goodness! My daughter would go nuts! These are all her favorites, mostly Dora. She calls me Dora! Her birthday party is the 20th but we would definitely change the date.

  16. Donna Reisinger says:

    I posted information about this giveaway on my profile and I linked it back to this post and Storytime Live!. 🙂

  17. Donna Reisinger says:

    We would love to win these tickets. Nickelodeon is on everyday here and my kids love it! Thank You! 🙂

  18. Lisa Williams says:

    I would lOVE to win these. My kids love all the shows on Nickelodeon. This would be so much fun for them. Thanks!!!
