    Was happy to find something a bit different for my 9 ye old nephew for Valentine's Day-something not candy and not crazy expensive. Perfect little something (& the teacher in me liked that it was educational as well!)

        I have been using these in a nursing home with great success although just to promote story telling and not as competition. We roll the dice and then someone starts and everyone adds something. May be time to start recording the stories. It really helps to have a place to start.

            I bought these as an "end of year" gift for my 2 son's teachers. They LOVE them! I think it is a special, nice alternative to the typical teacher gift...such as a mug. I was told they will use them in class, and at home with their own family members. Very satisfied!

              Granddaughter sometimes has trouble coming up with ideas for independent writing assignments. This solves that problem nicely!
              Used as a family, willlead to lots of fun round robin stories.

                My imaginative 3 year old daughter is ALWAYS asking us to tell her stories, and they better be good! We were completely out of storylines until we bought her these story cubes. Now, almost anywhere and at any time, we can have fun together telling stories that are inspired by the cubes. And it doesn't get repetitive either. I feel like we're spending quality time together and she's learning something, and it's EASY! Definitely recommend.

                    I think its good that they come in this small size but would love a larger option as well for visually impaired children to be able to be the story tellers too. Fun overall and great for keeping kids occupied & entertained.

                        I gave this as a gift to my grandmother for her birthday. At Christmas she tried to get our family to play the game where each person says a sentance to build a story together... it was VERY unsuccessful to say the least. I'm hoping these story cubes give us inspiration at our next family gathering! She was THRILLED.
