Reinventing Classic Story Tales with My1Story

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I will NEVER forget the time I took my daughter to see Disney Three Princesses Live.  I was so excited as it was her first show of this kind.  All the moms & kids from our playgroup went together with the little girls dressed in their princess clothes.  I guess my memories of Snow White, Cinderella and Beauty & the Beast were always about the happy ending.  I failed to remember that if you’re two years old, there are some really scary parts in there!  We spent most of the show in the bathroom because my daughter was so scared.  I want to share the classic stories with her but I don’t want her to be frightened of them.  That’s why I’ve fallen in love with My1Story.


Have you ever noticed that many of the classic fairy tales have some really serious subject matter in their story lines?  Wicked witches, evil step-mothers and tales of deceit line the pages of many of our favorite books!  Two former Disney executives noticed the same thing and created My1Story.  By reinventing classic story tales, these books make sweet dreams possible every time you hear the stories.

My1Story takes timeless characters and reinvents their stories.  We received Lil’ Riding Hood & Wolfie – I Love Cake!  I think everyone remembers the classic story of Little Red Riding Hood.  What seems sweet and innocent turns into something a little sophisticated for the imaginations of toddlers.  In I Love Cake, instead of having the big, bad wolf, there was a  little purple wolf and the only thing that was getting eaten was cake.  My daughter loved the book so much that she had me read it to her three times in a row.  It didn’t take her long to pick up on the concept of sharing, though I’m pretty sure if I asked her to share cake with me, she wouldn’t. 🙂

I definitely recommend adding any of the books in the My1Story collection to your child’s library.  You should be able to find My1Story at very soon.  You should also check out their latest video, Humpty’s Flying Adventure.  Make sure you subscribe to their channel to keep up with all the latest info!

  1. What a fantastic idea! I agree that the origin of some fairy tales can make them a bit on the scary side. This is a great alternative.

  2. We have these book and LOVE them! Aren’t they the absolute best!

  3. What an adorable idea! I am going to keep this in mind for a birthday gift idea!

  4. Oh wow, that’s such an awesome idea!

  5. How fun! This is such a great idea!

  6. What a great idea! There are so many scary bits in kids stories; Snow White, Cinderella, The Princess and The Frog, even Finding Nemo. I might keep an eye out for these.

  7. Many of the classic fairy tales are a bit dark. I had nightmares throughout childhood from seeing ‘The Wizard of Oz’. Love this idea!
