"What becomes so laugh-out-loud funny is how thoroughly convincing the cast are when playing six or seven year olds. What makes Childsplay so magical, even essential, is the troupe’s commitment to quality and its high-production values. There are no corners cut, and no playing down to its audience....wonderfully humorous seasonal production." -David Appleford, Valley Screen and Stage
"The fun, infectious show is a welcome addition to the holiday season with plenty of comic hijinks and even a few lessons about sharing and acceptance. Director David Saar has found an exceptional cast, made up of many Childsplay regulars, to bring these six year olds to vivid life. Full of humor and vivid characters, Junie B. Jones in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells! is a hilarious, charming, touching, endearing, and warm holiday comedy that is a nice change from all of the Christmas Carol's and other standard holiday offerings one usually has to choose from at this time of the year. Childsplay has delivered yet another winning production for children of all ages.
