The award-winning Story Time Chess game is looking to expand its retail footprint and get in front of more families up north.

Industry veteran Graham Mottram has joined Story Time Chess to lead sales for the game in Canada. Story Time Chess uses stories and supporting materials that communicate the rules of chess to kids ages 3 and up to make learning chess simple and fun. Mottram’s appointment is the next step in an overall mission to expand the game throughout North America and around the world.

“Interest in chess has never been higher and Story Time Chess is the only game that easily teaches kids as young as three years of age,” Mottram says. “We have already secured significant orders with some of the largest retailers in Canada and I look forward to continued success with Story Time Chess and additional games the company is planning to launch later this year and into 2022”.

Story Time Chess took home the People’s Choice Toy of the Year (TOTY) Award and was named one of ASTRA’s 2021 Best Toys For Kids.
