The CINEMOOD projector brings storytime to life

Being a parent is not an easy job. Children have a seemingly unending reservoir of energy. They’re curious about everything, and their developing minds need constant stimulation and engagement. And you can’t always give them your undivided attention. You’ve got dinner to prepare, a mountain of laundry to get through, and a dog to walk. If you’re juggling a professional career, that company report isn’t going to analyze itself. And don’t forget to take some guilt-free quiet time for yourself doing activities you enjoy, like reading, exercising, chatting with friends, and snoozing. That’s why it’s good to have an ace up your sleeve like the CINEMOOD portable movie theatre. Besides the fact that this projector can actually fit up your sleeve, this sleeve-sized projector will keep your little ones happily entertained while you knock errands off your to-do list or take a well-deserved hour of relaxation in the next room.

And what better way to keep little ones engaged for a while than with a story? Children love stories. Stories inspire them, spark their imagination, and stimulate their curiosity. Stories help them learn about their feelings and the world around them. Think of CINEMOOD as an innovative, all-in-one storyteller. It offers access to near-endless hours of built-in, child-friendly content, including cartoons, e-books, shadow puppets, lullabies, and bedtime stories. You’ll even discover some Disney features, starring familiar characters from Frozen, Toy Story, and The Lion King! Simplified controls on the top and side of this portable pocket projector make it a cinch to turn on and navigate, so even young children can easily find what they’re looking for and press play. CINEMOOD also eliminates the harmful blue light that tablets and TVs emit, making its projected content easier on young eyes.

And it’s not just for children. Besides projecting child-friendly content (that you can also control from the CINEMOOD app on your smartphone), this little cube can wirelessly screencast some of your favourite apps too, including Netflix and Youtube. Integrated 2.5W speakers and quiet, fanless cooling mean you don’t need to connect additional speakers or headphones, but you do have the option thanks to Bluetooth wireless technology.

Take stories with you everywhere

Best Buy reviewer, Shelly Wutke, received the CINEMOOD and you can find out about her experience here. Shelly explains the difference between this palm-sized smart projector and a standard projector. Aside from the obvious size difference, a standard projector generally has to be connected to a power source and a computer. CINEMOOD, on the other hand, doesn’t need to be plugged in or even connected to Wi-Fi.

It boasts five hours of rechargeable battery life, 16GB of internal memory, and tons of preloaded, family-friendly content. That means, when you’re in the car on the way to Grandma’s house or snuggled up in your sleeping bags on a camping trip, this pocket-sized powerhouse will let you transform any space into a family entertainment hub with movie theatre-like atmosphere. There’s no end to the fun your family can have with the versatile CINEMOOD. Simply dim the lights and let the stories work their magic. The question is, what would your family use this portable home theatre for?
