Using visual aids for story-telling can enable children to be involved and give a focus to the children who find listening hard.
However, some resources are small and difficult to see in a group, fragile and difficult to handle.
They may take a long time to prepare and be difficult to store.
Pictures are great but are often inaccessible in a group story-telling situation.
I wanted something hands-on, sturdy and child-friendly. Something that could be left on display, helping with recall and re-telling skills.
Storystack characters are large enough for group story-telling, colourful, hand washable and stackable for storage.
We hope they can be used in church groups, primary schools and pre-schools and homes.
Once we have covered our costs, all profits will go to charity - details will be shown on the website.
