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.

It comes with several stories. Our son absolutely loves it. I read the script while he moves the characters while the rest of the family watches. So much fun for everyone!

About Me and the Shadow Puppet Theatres
The combined experience of being a dad, a printer, illustrator and musician has led me on a creative path of discovery. As I made a wooden puppet theatre for my kids the project took on a life of its own and the design slowly morphed into a more portable shadow puppet theatre, of different sizes, with a number of fairy tales and fables and has been enjoyed by kids and adults all over the world.
My inspiration comes from classic illustrators such as Arthur Rackham, Walter Crane, Ivan Bilibin, Herman Vogle. Having drawn a lot as a child, this project has re-awakened that desire once again. In the process I have been discovering classic fairy tales, fables and folk tales from many cultures. Acting out these shadow plays is a great way of building imagination and storytelling.
Hearkening back to shadows on cave walls, there is something magical about shadow puppetry, that draws kids to play and make up their own stories.
In an age of ubiquitous electronics and "screen time" there is little left to imagination. My goal is to encourage "unplugged" play, together with the family that builds creativity, imagination and story telling.
Let's bring back the art of storytelling!
