What came first? The stone or the story?

I began Stone Stories in 2015 after finishing teaching full time in a fantastic school in Nottinghamshire. The years of experience working with the little ones in Early Years and Key Stage 1 meant that I had lots of knowledge that I wanted to share to improve language, vocabulary and creative storytelling. Stones were my go to choice as they are tactile and who doesn’t love to pocket the odd smooth and beautiful pebble from time to time. The design has evolved since 2015 quite a lot. Initially drawing images directly onto white pebbles became impossible as orders grew so I perfected the design we have today that is durable and washable and means I can make many more. My stones were previously available on my other Etsy shop ‘DebstaArt’ and with new big plans for Bookshelf editions I took the decision to open The Stone Story Company here on Etsy too.
Recently I have started transferring all of my original designs onto my iPad so that you all get the best quality images I can create.
I hope you love them as much as I do and have fun playing with your children, because play is a child’s work 😀

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

Please contact me to discuss custom or personalised orders so that I can make sure you get the best service and products.

Sizing details

The stones used vary in size from 2-3 cm up to 5-6 cm for this reason I recommend that the the sets of Stone Stories are suitable for age 3+.

Can you create any story?

I am more than happy to create bespoke set of stone stories for you using my own unique drawings and designs. Please do understand that due to copyright infringements I cannot create Stone Stories for modern popular stories without first seeking Author/Illustrator permission.

Care instructions

The making process of Stone Stories is such that they should be pretty robust and last a good while. They are lacquered with a clear acrylic too which means they are washable if you have been storytelling in the garden, and you can tell stories in the bath.

What will my child learn through playing with Stone Stories?

That is a great question. The child’s ability, gender, or first language isn’t important because with Stone Stories children will develop vocabulary at their level and pace. Storytelling is something we all do in everyday life from recounting our day over dinner to explaining our thoughts and feelings. Stone Stories help children to develop the art of storytelling aiding communication and fostering a love of story.
The amazing thing is that they don’t need to sit still indoors to do it as Stone Stories can be used anywhere! 😊
