As an artist my favorite medium is paper. I love how strong, yet flexible paper can be, making it an incredibly resourceful and versatile art martial to work with. I love creating papercut works of art for their simplicity, yet bold finished product. When I had the pleasure of connecting with Liska of Adventure in a Box I knew instantly that I had to get my hands on her beautifully designed shadow puppets

Oh, my, oh my. What gorgeous detail has been put into these shadow puppets. Exquisitely crafted with imagination and child's play in mind the shadow puppets from Adventure in a Box meet all the criteria for an afternoon of fun with young children.

We set up a very simple theater scene of a white sheet draped over two chairs with just daylight shining through. My children sat in rapture as I told the story of the frog prince using the Make a Fairy Tail Shadow Puppet Set

We traded places and my daughter told us her rendition of Beauty and the Beast..or maybe it was just about a Princess and her very ferocious looking dog (the beast), but it was adorable and we all laughed at the 3 year-old's wild and silly plot twists. 

It is rare to find an interactive toy that engages, insights imagination and play, and is beautiful to interact with for both children and their grown ups. Playing Shadow Puppet Theater is a fond memory from when I was a child, and I am so pleased to be able to delight in the same play now with my own children. I have added more shadow puppet sets to my holiday wish lists, and I hope you too will take a look and add a set to your gifts this season as well. Check out all of the magical toys at Adventure in a Box, and unleash your family's imaginations. 

 

Happy Holidays my friends.
