Next weekend see’s the clocks going back. With the evenings getting darker earlier will help the kids to get to sleep. Well that’s me hoping! To help with bedtime Moonlite have come up with an alternative way (using a story book projector) to reading a traditional story book. Moonlite brings storybooks to life with a modern twist, that makes reading a fun and memorable event for both children and parents. This is done by projecting the story using an app and your smart phone.
The projector is a small device that clips onto your smartphone and uses the torch to project vibrant storybook images onto any surface!
While projecting the storybook images, the Moonlite app displays story text and plays charming sound effects, creating an immersive and magical story time experience for you and your child.
Moonlite is for babies, toddlers, kids, and adults who love to read. It’s compatible with most Android and iOS devices.
These are the story’s launching:
- The Moonlite Starter Pack (SRP £19.99) featuring Eric Carle’s popular “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “The Very Busy Spider”
- The Moonlite Gift Pack (SRP £39.99) featuring Mr Men and Fairy Tales
- The Moonlite Story Reels (SRP £7.99 each) featuring Spot the Dog and Beatrix Potter The Tale of Jemima PuddleDuck, The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
We were lucky to receive the Gift Pack and The Tale of Jemima Puddleduck story reel to try out. Jemima Puddleduck is my favourite Beatrix Potter book, so to see the story told by projection was a special moment for me. I’m really enjoying sharing this bedtime experience with baby girl. I can see why Moonlite can help the bond between children and parents and create forever memories that are passed on generation to generation. It enhances that experience and makes children excited for bedtime, while promoting early literacy.
Did you know that reading stories to our children fuels their imaginations and activates the creative side of their brains? They begin to visualise the words we are reading to them, which helps develop their creative intelligence
There is a magical time between ages 3 to 7 when children expand out beyond verbal communication and start to develop written language skills as well.
How Moonlite Works
Moonlite is quick and simple to use, this is great at bedtime! In four easy steps you can be snuggled up with your child reading through your story.
1. Simply download Moonlite from the App Store or Google Play Store – it’s free!
2. Pop one of the story reels into the Moonlite projector
3. Attach Moonlite to your phone
4. Open the app, unlock the story with the included activation code and start reading
The app goes through each step, showing you exactly how to set it all up.
As a huge lover of books, and with myself sharing this with my girls, nothing can take away the quality of opening a book. I can see Moonlite doesn’t do this, it enhances the story time experience. The Moonlite gift packs and reels open like a book and can be kept on the same shelf as the rest of your books.
We love using the Moonlite story book projector, and it will be something I know will be regularly used in our house. It’s exciting to see which stories they will be releasing next.
