When they hear the familiar ‘read me a story,’ parents who turn to a classic fairytale realize, perhaps too late, that the plot lines are downright scary. The last thing parents want to tell their kids, all snuggled in bed, are stories about big bad wolves or poisoned apples! Enter My1story line of fairytales that guarantee a positive spin until the happy ending. Winner of Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Children’s Products, the first two My1story books now welcome two plush characters, Lil’ Riding Hood and Beanie, straight from the beautifully illustrated pages. Available exclusively on amazon.com, each storybook and plush introduces classic characters, but in a brand new way. The loveable, never scary, illustrations are by Jaime Rodriguez, a former Walt Disney Company character artist. Formerly sinister big bad wolf has been rewritten as a mischievous but approachable wolf cub. The giant in Jack & the Beanstalk transforms into Beanie, still a giant but a young, small one. I Love Cake and Jack and the Magic Beans are the first two books of the My1story series.
My kids LOVE the My1story books and were so excited to see that there were plush characters to match! We have both the I Love Cake, and the Jack and the Magic Beans books. My kids appreciate the uplifting stories without a “villain”. I love the big pages and perfect length of the book. The illustrations are so cute and the plush characters look identical to the pictures! My daughters thought Lil’ Riding Hood was adorable and enjoy holding her while we read the I Love Cake Story. The plush doll was also way bigger than I pictured and is super soft! I can’t wait to see which fairytale My1story decides to tackle next! I am a huge fan and would love to add to my collection! The My1story products would be great for Christmas or birthday presents and I would recommend them to anyone!
My1story products can be purchased on Amazon. The plush dolls retail for $16.99 each and are recommended for ages 18 months and up.
