Koos Kneus (‘Clumsy Jim’) is a cozy puppet theatre in Amsterdam-Oost.

When? Children’s performances take place every Sunday and Wednesday. There are shows aimed at toddlers aged 2 to 4 years and shows for children aged 4 to 8 years. Please check our calendar for show times.

What? The performances last 30 to 40 minutes.

Face paint. After and before the shows, a professional face painter will turn all children into beautiful princesses, tigers, pirates or butterflies. There are lots of dress-up sets to wear too.

Food/drink. There’s free coffee, tea, lemonade and water. Also, help yourself to our signature speculaasjes!

In Dutch? All performances are conducted in Dutch, but the toddler shows especially are not language-heavy and easy to follow.
