This is really cool. Bought it as a gift so I haven't set it up but I think it will be enjoyed for years to come.
I got the theater and 3 story sets as a birthday gift for my 4-year-old. We've had a wonderful time with them! She's at an age where storytelling in the dark is thrilling so she's fascinated with it. The included scripts are actually a great way to reacquaint her with theater conventions, since the pandemic has prevented us from seeing anything live for most of her memory. We do not have a lot of space and I love the way everything packs flat. Be aware that you will need to cut the mylar into strips to use the characters and props; my daughter was absolutely insistent upon participating in the process, which was more work for me than if I'd just cut everything myself before presenting it to her! There was also a small learning curve for her to figure out how to quickly move the characters and the backgrounds into position.
I think this item is adorable and kids will love it. It arrived well ahead of Christmas!
The order was sent on time, the seller was very accommodating and extremely customer-friendly. This shadow theatre is very suitable for beginners and for a small group of children (2 children). It inspires further work, new ideas and the perfection of what already exists. It's just a pity that the printer blackness of the figures/images is not 100% black. The light shines through. So that the sharpness suffers a little.
