KID STORYBOOK TORCH


By Ningbo Mideer Toys Co., Ltd. 
Age 3+


KIDS STORYBOOK TORCH engages and entertains children with full-color projections depicting their favorite fairy tales on any wall or surface. 

The visually appealing device comes with eight small discs, each of which contains 8 scenes from a different children's story, classics like Cinderella, Pinocchio, Thumbelina, and five others. Making the magic happen is remarkably easy: press the 'on' button once, insert a disc into the torch's slot and it's showtime! 

The artwork that emerges is truly glorious, each tale told entirely through gorgeous images. The omission of verbiage inspires an immense amount of creative play. Youngsters supply their own words, act out characters' parts and change up the storylines at will, an outstanding way to develop language skills while encouraging the imagination to roam free. Also included is a set of story cards secured on a plastic ring. 

Each card displays all the artwork for a given tale on one side, with the entire story written out in full on the other. When playtime's over, a second press of the 'on' button turns KIDS STORYBOOK TORCH into a soothing, starry nightlight that paves the way for rest and relaxation!
