Here are some recent news articles and reviews of our Walk-in-Book:
We were thrilled to be featured in May's edition of Gurgle magazine.
There was a lovely review of our Walk-in-Book.
They said "If you fancy expanding your little one's (and yours) imagination, this could be just the thing for you...hours of Fun"
"There is a map which is a whole world of all sorts of possibilities which would start firing a young imagination. Where better to be start a story than at Violet’s Folly, The Dancing Lawn or at Grandmother’s Cottage? The road names are great such as ‘Billowing Bushes’. Then there are the characters, there’s Story and also a mask for either your child, yourself or their favourite toy to take part in the adventure. But, as we all know, beginning is rather tricky even with a wonderful map. However Story has already thought of that and there are ‘Beginning Cards’. And should your child get stuck there are helpful ‘Quest’ cards.
This is a wonderful resource that can be used to spark the creative mind or a mind that has been watching too much TV and needs a catalyst to get it going. "
review of our Kickstarter launch:
"The goal is to encourage children to read and write more – particularly those who may lack confidence in both skills – while also stimulating their enjoyment of creative thinking and free play. Story’s Kickstarter pitch cites a recent report from think-tank Demos, with its concerns about childhood becoming “one prolonged stretch of spectatorship”. Hence the idea to use storytelling props to bring children back to an active, imaginative mode. There is no app for Story: it’s an entirely non-digital experience. Not a technology story, you might think. Yet it arguably taps directly into one of the most fascinating technologies of all: a child’s brain and its capacity for invention."
