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.

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.
