Storystack – Bible Storytelling Characters




A set of 24 character figures for use as visual aids in telling Bible stories to children aged 3 and over, encouraging them to listen and be involved.
A colourful, re-usable, multi-story Bible teaching resource!

The idea for the Storystack characters came from the similar sounding story sacks – sacks containing a book and a collection of related props and activities. Having visual aids to accompany storytelling can enable children to be involved and give a focus to the children who find listening a challenge. They may also make a story more memorable and can be linked into follow-on activities such as craft.


The Storystack figures are designed to be large enough for group storytelling, re-useable and hand washable, sturdy and free-standing, easy to hold and stackable for storage.


Perfect for using in church groups, primary schools and pre-schools and homes. They can be used to tell any story you wish!

“These are amazing. I have used them with 2 to 10 years olds and they all like them. Better still they want to use them to retell Bible stories… Fantastic resource and worth every penny.”

  • Cone-shaped for stability in young hands
