Magical Moonlite ™

Innovative new story projector brings children’s favourite tales to life.

Creating a truly magical, immersive storytelling experience that fuels your child’s imagination like no other is  Moonlite™  – a story time projector for your mobile phone.

Already an award-winning product and a firm favourite across the pond, Moonlite™  launches in the UK this month bringing a modern twist to traditional storytelling that makes reading a fun and memorable experience for parents and children.

The small device 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 a special story time experience for you and your child. Designed to be soothing and calming, Moonlite™ automatically operates in Night Shift mode to create a relaxing environment, perfect for bedtime.

Children will love reading classic stories including Mr Men, the Very Hungry Caterpillar and Beatrix’s Potter’s the Tale of Peter Rabbit as their favourite characters come to life right in front of their eyes!

The clocks changing is a time for parents to embrace bedtime storytelling.

As the darker nights set in ahead of the clocks change, celebrity mums and experts are encouraging parents to embrace this time of year to bring back a love for storytelling and reading that will last a lifetime!

With recent research* showing that only half of pre-school children are being read to every day, a figure which has dropped by a fifth over the last five years, a new campaign champions the importance of reading in those early years to fuel children’s imaginations and build early literacy skills. Storytime is also a special bonding moment creating forever memories that are passed on generation to generation.

The perfect children’s gift, you can buy Moonlite from Smyths Toy Stores, The Entertainer and Amazon. The products and titles include:

  • TheMoonlite™ Starter Pack (SRP £19.99) featuring Eric Carle’s popular “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “The Very Busy Spider”
