Moonlite – A Mini Storybook Projector

What Is Moonlite?

Moonlite is a storybook projector that is powered by the flashlight on your mobile phone! Make a story come to life with vivid projections, sound effects, read-a-long features, and more! With this simple projector, you’ll be able to transform storytime into a magical event that both children and parents will enjoy.

My Experience With The Moonlite Projector

The moment I took the mini Moonlite Projector out of the box, my daughter was interested. The projector only took a few minutes to set up and we were sitting down together for a story in no time at all! My daughter LOVED the background music provided by the Moonlite App. The music is very peaceful and relaxing as I read through the story. The projection on the wall was clear and bright. The Moonlite clip fit securely onto my phone and was not bulky or heavy to hold while reading the story.

My daughter sits well for storytime usually, but for any child that is a little more fidgety, this would be the perfect solution! With the vibrant projected pictures and background music, I believe it will keep any little one engaged in the story.

It’s wonderful that the Moonlite Projector works well on multiple surfaces, but we use it mostly while we are lying in bed and projecting the story onto the ceiling, or out in the living room on our couch and projecting the story onto the wall.

There is one improvement I would like to see, and that is to have the option to have the story be read to us! It’s nice to read to your child, but I think it would also be a nice break to snuggle up tight to your little one and enjoy having the story read to both of us.

How Does The Moonlite Projector Work?

Simply pop an included story reel into the Moonlite projector, attach it to your phone, open the Moonlite application, and begin projecting your storybook images! The Moonlite universal clip supports over 90% of mobile devices. I am able to project the images on surfaces anywhere we find ourselves, such as the wall, floor, ceiling, in the camper, the car, or even outside.

What Age Group Is The Moonlite Projector For?

The Moonlite Storybook Projector is fun for all ages! My daughter and I both love listening to the sound effects and background music as I read to her. The projector and app are so simple to use that even grandparents will love reading to their grandchildren!

There are also Disney storybooks available such as Frozen: A Royal Sleepover, Winnie The Pooh, and The Lion King. Moonlite offers storybooks in two different languages, English or French!

Will Moonlite Work With A Phone Case?

Moonlite DOES work with most phone cases! However, take note that it will work best without a case. The Otter Box is not currently supported as it is too thick.

What Could You Use Moonlite For?

The Moonlite Storybook Projector would make a fantastic gift, a special activity that you do with your child, or a large group activity that you could do with children such as a daycare! I especially love my Moonlite Storybook Projector for story time with my daycare children. The kids get really excited when I shut the lights off to project the image and they can all see the pictures as I read to them.

I would highly suggest Moonlite to any of my friends and family with children. I am always looking for new, fun ideas for birthday gifts for kids and the Moonlite Projector is one that marks all the boxes to be a gift that they will love!
