Once upon a time there was a little girl who lived in a big stone house on a mountaintop...

This is a set of ten wood story telling cubes. The cubes are used to encourage imaginative story telling - roll each cube to see what picture ends up on top and then incorporate that element into the next part of your story.

You can use the cubes to tell stories with your children, taking turns with a group of children, or a child can use them independently. It's also fun to write down the stories sometimes so they can be enjoyed again and again.

This set includes ten 1" hardwood birch cubes (made in USA) with a picture on each side, hand drawn in permanent ink and painted with watercolors. Each cube has a theme: people, animals, birds, dwellings, food, transportation, weather, places, nature finds and props. Note: Cubes will vary slightly as each set is hand drawn and painted.

This colorful set contains mostly everyday story elements, as opposed to our black and white set which has more of a historical/classic fantasy bent to it as seen here:

Cubes come in a handy linen storage bag approximately 6 x 7", with a yellow drawstring of vintage bias tape. Story telling tips included.

These small cubes could be a choking hazard and are not intended for children under three years old or any child who still puts things in his or her mouth. Cubes made with AP certified nontoxic ink and paint.
