Taking a two year old to the circus?

Someone offered me free tickets to the cole brothers circus which will be in my town next week. I want to take my 2 yr old but not sure if I should. She loves animals and what not and I think she'd get a kick out of it, but she can be a bit of a handful. She's not good at sitting and staying with me in crowds. I haven't been to a circus in years so I don't know what to expect as far as seating and length of time and what not. Should I take her or just skip it?

If it is free, why not?

If its free for you, go! If you need to leave early, you're not out any money!

I want to take my girls to the circus but I have moral issues with it :/ Ah well.

If she isn't good with sitting or in crowds then I wouldn't take her. There are usually a lot of people at circuses.

We took our daughter when she was 2. I was nervous that she wouldn't hold still but she surprised us and was perfect. She loved going to the circus.

I took my two year old. The circus is intimidating, a toddler will not be trying to run away from your grasp if you're hand holding or have her on your lap. Another thing, you know those guys thru the stands that sell cotton candy, peanuts, and light toys...PURCHASE helps keep them entertained. But I didn't have much trouble with my son...he sat for an hour enthralled at things he'd never seen

It depends on the kid my kids were overwhelmed by all the noise and people but some kids love it.

We don't do the circus due to the way they treat the animals.
