Brings back traditions
Papaton Shadow Theater brings a new twist to classic fairy tales.
Four well-known fairy tales and one from
your own imagination
Inside the box, 20 specially designed fairy-tale characters and 12 props are waiting for you to bring them to life and invite your audience over.
A creative gift for any occasion
Amaze the kids: your smartphone sets a fairy-tale scene and the items included in the set can be used for play or to create favorite characters.
Use your smartphone to work magic
The text of each fairy tale scrolls across your telephone screen like film subtitles, leaving your hands free to join in the game with your children.
In-app animated characters for each fairy tale entertain young viewers before the performance starts.
To create a real show, music has been specially composed for each fairy tale. So, in Three Little Pigs, you'll hear cheerful, carefree notes and sounds from nature, while the "create your own" option features music that draws on the best traditions of all your favorite animated movies.
The fairy-tale scripts are available in 7 languages: English, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Russian and Chinese.
