Who would love this: Fairy-tale and bedtime story lovers
Story time, the magical moment where pumpkin transformed into carriage, Pinocchio met his fairy, and gingerbread man escaped from oven. Mideer sent me this “Kid Storybook Torch” recently, and it’s such an instant HIT! I love how it makes story time unique and exciting in a fresh and different way.
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Innovative Torch - I love how versatile this clever torch is! It’s a flashlight, a story projector, and a “night light” with illumination of stars and moon. I love how easy it is to change the light mode, to switch it on and off, with just a press of button (one button, three applications). The kids have been using the torch in their “shadow puppet show”, dinosaur movie scenes, and indoor “campfire” night. The torch makes things feel “adventurous” yet calming at the same time. The kids created their “daylight” and “night light” using the interchangeable function of the torch. According to the instructions, the light will automatically turn off after 15 minutes without operation, which I think is an awesome feature!
(2) Projection Discs - The box comes with 8 miniature projection discs that can be inserted into the torch slot, and matching story cards (in both English and Mandarin): Cinderella, Thumbelina, Pinocchio, The Happy Prince, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, The Gingerbread Man, The Enormous Turnip, I Want To Go To Space. Each disc contains 8 pictures that can be rotated and projected onto the wall or ceiling. The set comes with a hinged ring that binds the cards in an organised way. The stories are written in a short and succinct way, probably not your most well-written script, but they give us an idea on how to expand our stories and be creative in our narration in the dark. I also love the adjustable focal length: The farther the distance is, the larger the image projected.
(3) Torch Design - I love the lantern torch design. It has a handle for easy portability. It is trendy in blue, with interesting “night time” related images on it (sleepy bunnies, constellation, snoring bears, fireflies etc). It also comes with 3 LR 44 batteries.
(4) Organised Box - I love the box that keeps everything together with a magnetic closure lid.
