Window Wonderland Review
Window Wonderland is an indoor projector that shines festive Christmas scenes – or spooky Halloween movies – onto a screen attached to an interior window. This in turn displays the movies to anyone who can see that window from outside the home.
It is a logical progression from popular items such as Star Shower Motion, which projected moving laser lights onto the home, to this item which actually displays full color video to passersby.
To use Window Wonderland, you’ll first want to choose your most visible window where you want to shine your display. You’ll then cut the included 4 x 6 to size and attach it to the interior of the window where you want your movie to be displayed. The Window Wonderland projector will need to be set up far enough away in order to fill the size of your window with your movie. In my moderate-sized bedroom, that meant the projector had to be placed on a tripod in the doorway, about 12-14 feet away.
Three buttons on the unit allow you to choose between Halloween and Christmas movies, as well as the orientation of your window (vertical or horizontal). There is an audio out, in which you can play accompanying sound for each clip. To me, the challenge here is finding a 14+ food aux cable and where to put my speakers so they can be heard outside.
If all of your friends jumped on the laser light projection bandwagon last year, this is a way to one-up them with full-color movies as part of your outdoor holiday display. Keep in mind that each clip is only about 10 seconds long, and there is no way to cycle through them automatically. You can set one movie to play repeatedly, but you can’t set it to play them all.
The only real potential “cons” in my opinion are related to the screen. First, after you cut it to the size of your desired window, you may not be able to move it to another window of a different shape. Second, the four included pieces of double-sided tape don’t really remove easily, and I started to tear holes in the screen as I attempted to remove them. Eventually I just used the original paper backing to cover the adhesive, which probably won’t be a long-term solution.
Window Wonderland appears to be a twin product to Fantasy Flicks, which was briefly test marketed in December 2016 into early January 2017. That item disappeared for several months, but has re-appeared in a dual-marketing campaign for both items, presumably for the makers to determine which version will strike a chord with consumers.
In a “Freakin’ Reviews First” I am actually posting reviews for two neraly identical products at the same time. While this may seem like overkill, keep in mind that both of these products are being marketed separately, and do offer slightly different features. I feel that each deserves its own review, at least until they are consolidated into a single product, presumably later in 2017.
I find it a bit odd that these two items were being marketed in May 2017, when the nearest major holidays were Memorial Day and Fourth of July, and there were no Patriot type of movies offered in this unit.
It will be interesting to see which of these two makes the cut, although my money is on Window Wonderland, which seems to have more features, and even a Deluxe model.
As you may have expected, there are a couple of items out there that already do the same thing as Fantasy Flicks. Windowfx offers two holiday projector videos, one for $40 and the other for $80. Holiday Projectors is another brand that projects Halloween and Christmas movies onto an interior window.
