Story Stars Toby Tales Toy Review + giveaway

Story Stars are the newest way to read bedtime stories to your children. There are 5 different Story Stars and we received Toby Tales to review. Story Stars work by downloading an app on your smart phone and choosing from a list of stories and songs which ones you would like. Then via bluetooth you transfer the stories to your Story stars toy.

To start, first you need to have the app downloaded on your phone. A list of compatible devices can be found on their website. Simply check which stories or songs you would like to download to your Story star. Please note, that the story star can only hold so much data. I’d say this is around 20 minutes worth. We managed to download 2 stories, 1 song and 1 short personal message.

You can record your on message or story for your child to listen to. You simply press the red button on the app and talk into your phone and it will record you.

When you have chosen your stories and are ready to transfer them to your story Star, All you do is press the button on your app then the left button on your story stars belly until the green light comes on.

The transfer time depends on the amount you are putting on, but this roughly took us 10 minutes to complete.

Once the transfer is finished, your story Star is ready to use. from now on you don’t need you phone. You will only need to use the app again when you want to change the stories that are on your Story star.

To listen to the stories just press the middle button on his tummy. To change to the next story or song, press it again. The little crescent button on the right makes his tummy light up and project pretty patterns and colours on to the ceiling when it is dark. Perfect for little ones at bedtime.

Even though the Story star is suitable from  18 months old, my 6 year old daughter Caitlin loves him. She loves reading stories before bedtime and this is great and she can lie in bed listening to them with her light off, helping her to drift off to sleep. The Story Stars also have a automatic turn of function, so if your child falls asleep listing to it, you know the batteries won’t get drained.
