Many kids love playing pretend, creating their own stories as they go. Now, they can bring the stories from their mind onto the stage with a set that helps them create a light and shadow show.
Designed for kids ages 3 and up, the Papaton Shadow Theater from family-owned company Papaton Kids comes with 32 cut-out props and characters, including castles, trees, monsters, people, animals, and more, all ready to use! These tools are everything kids need to tell classic fairytales like The Three Little Pigs, The Tortoise and the Hare, Little Red Riding Hood, and The Lion and the Mouse, or any story kids can imagine. Each prop stands up or has handles that kids can wield backstage, but the show doesn’t start until the flashlight turns on.
The Papaton Shadow Theater comes with a stand for adults to put their phone in to use as the flashlight, but a regular flashlight works as well. From behind the curtain, kids can put on a show that appears in shadow form from the audience. During the show, kids can use their parent’s phone to read off their script using the Papaton app, or make one up as they go along.
The Papaton Shadow Theater is available for $69.99 at papatonkids.com and Amazon. Kids can foster their theatrical ambitions both behind the scenes and on stage with this set. Let those mini Shakespeares run free!
