About Creative Story Stones

Creative Story Stones are an excellent creative learning tool for young children aged 3 years and over.As a sensory play activity they:

  • Provide playful learning

  • Foster creativity and imagination

  • Increase vocabulary

  • Great for developing oral and listening skills

  • Assist in language and thinking skill development

  • Excellent for pre-literacy skills.

With Creative Story Stones children are able to ignite their imagination with well over 10 million story variations and possibilities.

Where are Creative Story Stones being used? 

In addition to Creative Story Stones being utilised in the class room, they are a fantastic addition to the home for quiet play opportunities either independently or as a group activity.Paediatric Occupational Therapists, Psychologists and Speech Therapists are able to use Creative Story Stones during therapy sessions, especially in the early sessions as a way to encourage clients to open up.

What is unique about Creative Story Stones?

I have been working on the Story Stone concept for many years, working with actual stones, stickers, paints and glues.But Creative Story Stones are special because they are made from epoxy resin cured into a hard flat stone like shape. Once resin cures it is very light making them easier to carry. There are 20 stones in each set, each with its own digitally drawn (by me) image which is embedded in the resin ensuring the images can’t peel off like many other children’s toys.The resin is light in weight and is strong so less likely to chip and scratch.

What will you receive as a reward for backing Creative Story Stones?

You will receive 1, 2, 3, 5 or 10 sets of Creative Story Stones depending on your level of pledge.Each set will come with its own drawstring bag.

Risks and challenges

As with any manufacturing project there are risks however we believe the most common being time frames. I have been liaising with the manufacturers to ensure my timelines are realistic and to minimise the possibility of a manufacturing delay. Additionally, there is risk with any kind of shipping method, unfortunately we are at the mercy of weather and customs…..

This being said, we will work hard to make sure we deliver what we promise and go the extra mile whenever it is possible and that you are kept up to date throughout the whole process.
