Have you ever noticed that many classic children’s stories are on the scary side? Have you ever found yourself changing a story on the fly because you’re worried it might cause a sleepless night for your little one? My1story is a line of fairytales that puts a positive spin and happy ending on classics such as Little Red Riding Hood and Jack & The Beanstalk. Trade in the big bad wolf for Little Wolfie who loves cake and learns a lesson about sharing. You’ll also be trading in nightmares for discussions about morals.
The first two My1story books Lil’Riding Hood & Wofie I Love Cake and Jack’s Beanstalks Jack and the Magic Beans have just introduced two plush characters right from the book’s beautifully illustrated pages adding an extra element of fun.
Winner of Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Children’s Products, My1story storybooks and plush characters are available exclusively on Amazon.com. The illustrations by Jaime Rodreguez, a former Walt Disney Company character artist, are never scary. Storylines are tamed down — The Big Bad Wolf becomes a mischievous yet lovable wolf cub and grandma helps him realize that sharing can be fun.
We gave the Lil’ Riding hood book and plush to my daughter on her 2nd birthday. She literally squealed with delight when she saw the plush toy. All three of my kids enjoy the story and I love that it allows me an easy way to talk about the importance of sharing in a way they can relate to. My kids don’t get scared easily but I can appreciate the fact special care is taken to recreate more child friendly classics, especially for those with children who are a little more sensitive.
The hardcover books are 10” x 10”, a nice storybook size and the plush toys are the perfect huggable size — not too big and not too small. Visit www.myfirstory.com for more information and to find games, fun stuff and characters. Visit and play with your child!
