Lantern Play – Creature Stories



  • Product Development: Sourcing & Development

  • Manufacturing: Production Management

  • Industrial Design: Package Construction


The Challenge

A client came to us looking for help developing, sourcing, and manufacturing a product idea in the early stages of concepting and branding. This client wanted to create an art kit that engaged imagination and storytelling through open-ended play with stencils, doodling, and more. 


  • Product components and pieces had to be finalized, sourced, and tested thoroughly, everything from stencil thickness to felt-tip pen performance

  • Box packout needed to highlight each component piece in beautiful, reusable packaging with a kid-friendly format and handle for easy carrying 


  • Once production-ready, final product required oversight throughout manufacturing, safety testing, shipping, and delivery


The Solution

Through extensive research and testing, our team determined the best materials and design for each component part. We also found the factory and worked with them to produce and deliver a high-quality product.


  • Packaging design with a pizza-style box allows for easy access to each component part, creating a user-friendly kit for kids and parents to open, use, and stow

  • Thoughtfully-designed component parts create the perfect play experience, including 60 unique monster stencils, spiral-bound storybook, finger daubers, background sheets, 6-color ink pad, and a doodle pen

  • Expertise in manufacturing and safety testing allows us to work smoothly through typical challenges that arise during production, testing, and customs clearance, limiting delays on shipments


Our team guided the product through development and production, resulting in a beautiful art kit that’s now available online. We are happy to help more kids discover their creative confidence with Creature Stories.
