Handmade in the Sidlaw Hills, our frame allows you to create your own paper theatre. You can place the frame on a table, stool or on the floor next to you, freeing your hands which allows you to sign, use props or musical instruments.
Each story can be stored in its own beautifully designed container. Every story comes with a dedicated Planning Ideas Pack which is bursting full of activity ideas linked to the story. After you have enjoyed the story why not investigate what other species lay eggs? Or make a chart of different breeds of dogs.
This type of storytelling is called kamishibai and comes from Japan. Using a frame is the traditional method used by the Kamishibai man. My frame has been specially designed and made for us by Sandy Duncan on the Sidlaw Hills in Scotland. Our frames are made from pine and PVA wood glue. This is not a toy and it is not recommended to be used by children under the age of fourteen years.
