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 the 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 illustrated pages.
Available exclusively on amazon.com, each storybook and plush introduces classic characters 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.
All My1story plush and books can be purchased at amazon.com by searching for “myfirstory” in the toys & games section. Available products include the Lil’ Riding Hood Plush, the Lil Riding Hood & Wolfie in I Love Cake!, the Beanie Plush, and Jack’s Beanstalks in Jack and the Magic Beans.
