CREATIVE WRITING INSPIRATION
“I use my Storytelling Box with my 8 year old son as inspiration for creative writing assignments. What used to be a chore is now a simple matter of pulling a few random cards.” Kimberly B., Salt Lake City, UT

What Our Customers Are Saying
I recently ordered your box after reading about it in the OC Register. I was a classroom teacher in Orange County for nearly 40 years in primary grades and have been tutoring children who have reading and language challenges for 12 years as well as children on the spectrum. Your idea has a multitude of uses for me and has brought joy, confidence, and improvement for many of my students. Often they request that we push through their lessons so that we can add on some creative time using the box in some way. Wish I'd had it in my classroom! I have found there are endless ways to implement it for learning/building language and writing creatively. Thanks for putting it out there.
My kids and I absolutely love playing with The Storytelling Box. I love seeing my boys faces when I make up a story. I feel it helps us focus more on reading and imagining the story, rather than sitting and playing video games!
Thanks for much for The Rewards Box. Even though we use it just for fun, my son decided, on his own, that he should do his chores to earn a card from the box. What's better than that?
How it all began:
Two years ago, my wife took a dance class. I waited for her in the reception area. The receptionist’s 5-year old daughter was visiting, ill with a cold. She was crying and wouldn’t settle down for a nap despite her mother’s coaxing.
I finally stood, walked over to the counter, looked at the little girl and said the magic words, “Once upon a time…”. The crying turned off like a light switch (amazing how children can do that) and I had her full attention. I told her a story I made up on the spur of the moment and within 5 minutes she was fast asleep. You should have seen the gratitude and amazement on her mom’s face.
That was the moment the idea for The Storytelling Box was born! It was soon followed by The Rewards Box and many more in development. We sincerely hope you and your children enjoy.
