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.”
There are currently 29 stories available online, along with which characters to use and suggestions for additional props. This set also includes the complete spiral bound book of all 40 stories, including character reference guide and other helpful storytelling tips!
Each character is approx. 15cm tall and is:
- Colourful and ‘dressed’ for the period
- Has a helpful small reference number printed on the reverse for easily finding the correct character for each story
- Designed with details that can be appropriate for specific stories but used for many stories
- Cone-shaped for stability in young hands
- Made from practical polypropylene which can be gently hand-washed for repeated use
- Stackable for easy storage
