Shadow Play™ Instructions 

Shadow Play™ books are easier to use than most modern toys. But for the best experience, we have a few tips:

 

Flashlight Flashlight

The quality and clarity of shadows depends primarily on the light source! Take a flashlight with one light bulb without a lens and reflector, which is found in 95% of modern smartphones. If the shadow is blurred or you see a double shadow, use another flashlight without a lens and with one bulb. 

 

 

 

distance Distance

The optimal distance from the book to the projection surface is 6-10 ft, then the shadows are large and the most impressive. The optimal distance from the flashlight to the book is 1-2 ft. You can experiment - project not only onto the wall, but also onto the ceiling - many of our readers love this method!

 How to watch

Shadow Play™ books are not static. Be the director of your shadow show - a flashlight will help you with this. Move it closer or further away from the page, illuminating the entire scene or just some details of the illustrations. Do it according to the story, be your own screenwriter!

 

 

read

 Thousands of reads

Unlike a regular book, Shadow Play™ can present one story in thousands of different ways. Tell the story from beginning to end, or in reverse. Role-play, come up with your own interpretations of the stories, read the original, or just listen to the audio. The main thing is to add a little imagination and you can enjoy our books for years to come!
