What did we think of the My Fabulous Storyteller?
We loved the hybrid feel of a traditional book crossed with the technology element of it being audible. It’s a real breath of fresh air for the kids to be entertained on their travels without being glued to a phone or staring at a screen.
The beauty of it is that the kids can listen via the unit or by plugging headphones in for a bit of peace and quiet. It was the first time Sofia had worn in-ear headphones and she looked like she was being transported into the story in her own little bubble.
The voices are much more pleasant than the whiny American voices we usually hear blaring from Sofia’s tablet, so we were more than happy to let her play it out of the device!
Being responsible for how the story unfolds definitely helps to keep Sofia’s attention as she can’t wait to hear what part will come next or where her chosen elements will appear in the story.
So far, we’ve used our My Fabulous Storyteller at home and when travelling out and about in the car (…think of it as a kids podcast!) – they even took it to the zoo with them.
We will be taking it on our summer holiday with us too, for those moments when they need to come in from the sun and chill, but aren’t quite ready to give in and sleep!
