Trenet Xumet is a children’s show created especially for kindergartens. The play begins slowly until the children gain confidence, and then the music, magic, puppets and humor are gradually chained together.
The main idea of the play is to combine two of the favorite entertainments of the little ones: playing with toy vehicles and building toys.
Trenet Xumet is a locomotive in which a clown travels happily. Unfortunately, the train broke down. Then the clown dismantles it and tries to fix it, but it gets even worse.
Thus, some pieces of the train become other things, like a chair that keeps Ruskus falling over and over, a magic tube from which colored handkerchiefs come out, and a puppet theater with a musical puppet playing the xylophone and making soap bubbles.
In addition to entertaining, Trenet Xumet highlights some good habits taught in kindergarten, such as sharing toys, picking up after play, and being affectionate with other children.
