Papaton Kids is a family owned California-based company owned by Anna and Anton Ten. The greatest asset of our games is interaction between parents and kids, and happy moments that bring them closer together and stay with them forever.
It was essential for us to create something valuable and meaningful that maybe won’t change the whole world but will make the lives of thousands of kids brighter and more fun.
Thus in 2015 Papaton Kids brand appeared. Playing with our daughter every day and testing our playset ideas gave us the strong feeling that we would like to devote ourselves to the kids games and toys market.
At the core of the Papaton Shadow Theater lies the idea of healthy ways of using technology. In our products, a phone helps kids in their active game, creating additional atmosphere, but not replacing it. Technology is part of our world and kids growing up with access to technology in a healthy way is something we believe to be a good thing and want to help parents realize that technology is not at all bad for a child if it’s used wisely.
Quality is another important characteristic of our products. The glow in children’s eyes and parents’ joy as they give their kids our games as a gift – this is what we think about before going to press.
Our first product, the Papaton Shadow Theater, won the hearts of thousands of kids and parents around the world. It comes with over 30 characters and props to enact four well-know fairy tales including Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, The Tortoise & The Hare and The Lion & The Mouse. The creative fun continues with a fifth story titled Once Upon a Time through which kids create their own stories aided by additional included props and characters! The accompanying app includes fairy tale scripts in 8 languages ( Am. English, German, Spanish, Italian, French, Chinese, Br. English, Russian), original orchestral music and lights for the shows. Papaton Shadow Theater is perfect for developing creativity and narrative storytelling skills, promotes active play and gives kids a unique theatrical experince.
Papaton Shadow Theater has won five international awards:
- Best Creative Fun, Tillywig Awards (2019);
- Family Choice Awards (2020);
- Seal of Approval, the National Parenting Center (2020);
- Parents’ Choice Recommended, Parents’ Choice Foundation (2020);
- PAL Award, Play On Words (2021).
It was also featured in USA Today as one of the hottest holiday toys 2021.
We want you and your kids to fall in love with our Shadow Theater just the way we once fell in love with this idea! Let your children be creative, and you won’t believe how they will surprise you in the best way possible!
And we’re not done yet – we've got big plans for the future.
