HASH(0x96825390) out of 5 stars Great Story-Creating Tool 31 Dec. 2012
By Sarah E Stafford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This kit is made for kids to tell stories aloud.

I, an adult, however, use them to inspire written stories for children. This product is perfect for spooky tales. I simply choose 2-6 of the cards and use them to inspire a story. I recommend getting more than one set, so you can mix up the categories for more fun and challenge (for instance, try pairing this kit with the mad scientist or sea tales card decks.)

The beautifully illustrated cards are incredibly detailed, and have many elements on each card to inspire a story. For instance, “The Full Moon” shows carnivorous plants in front of a window. But look closely – some of the plants have sprouted hands and legs. One Venus fly trap is trying to swallow a cat. The watering can has a face on the spout. And outside the window you can see the headless horseman, riding under the full moon. You can create a story just from this one card!

You get 28 cards. Some of the best (in my opinion): the Witch, the Zombie, the Haunted Hallway, the Nightmare, the Runaway Eyeballs, the Friendly Ghost, the Scissor Man, and the Flying broomstick. You get such a variety of themes on the cards you can make an endless variety of spooky tales.

If you like to create spooky stories, to tell aloud or to write, get this set!
HASH(0x96d357a4) out of 5 stars Great addition to our Storyworld cards collection! 5 April 2013
By mdefields - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would not actually recommend this set of cards on its own - there just aren't enough to make it as fun as I know it can be. This was the second addition to our set. We bought the original Storyworld Cards set (which has double the number of cards as the add-on packs), then this one, and we also recently bought the Fairy World set. They are ALL great. I use them to make up stories to tell my daughter and she uses them to make up stories to tell me. They are drawn in such details and with so many details that it is impossible not to make up a great story from just three cards - a few more cards and you'll have a 300 page book, so be careful!! Can't recommend highly enough!
