NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Theatric Toys announced today that Props in a Box™ has been lauded with the esteemed Good Housekeeping's 2016 Best Toy Awards. The "all in one" movie making kit that encourages kids to create, imagine, make-believe and record movie magic, was chosen out of hundreds of toys and is featured in the November 2016 issue.
Props in a Box™ is the perfect Holiday gift for every family. It combines nostalgic props with modern technology, engaging families to create and preserve lasting memories.
With each set, children have the chance to dress in costume and perform the stories spinning in their imagination. Each Props in a Box™ kit comes with everything needed to put on the perfect production -- costumes, accessories, props with a "hand-made" feel and a whimsical illustrated backdrop, plus the Props in a Box Movie Maker App™.
Props in a Box™ include costumes for two diverse characters, 11+ props, a 55" x 42" colorful backdrop and a fabric storage case. Character pairings offered are Dinosaur & The Pirate, Farmer & The Doctor, Fisherman & The Astronaut and Princess & The Chef. The Props in a Box Movie Maker App™ is also included for download.
Props in a Box™ works hand-in-hand with the companion Props in a Box Movie Maker App™, available in both the Apple App Store and Google Play. Stuck for an idea? The app's Story Starters can provide endless movie ideas for each specific box. Not only can families record their productions on the app, but the app allows for the insertion of titles, cast of characters, music—and even comes with custom hand drawn special effects. Each purchase includes one free pack of special effects, and holiday-specific effects will be added throughout the year.
Retail price for Props in a Box™ is $59.99 and can be found at Toys R Us nationwide.
