I received this product from Story Time Chess for review.
Story Time Chess is a revolutionary new game that lets you teach your child how to play chess at as young as the age of 3! it is priced at $49.99 and you can purchase it directly from their website.
Story Time Chess is a board game that teaches chess to young children
using silly stories, vibrant illustrations, custom chess pieces, a
unique chess board, and an engaging card game. The stories and
supporting materials communicate the rules of chess to children ages 3
and up in a way that makes learning chess simple and fun. Best of all, no chess experience is required for parents or children to learn.
Stories are an incredibly powerful educational tool. Children have an
astounding ability to retain stories down to the last detail. Telling a
child an abstract rule may only confuse them because they have nothing
to connect with. Instead of telling children what something is, Story
Time Chess is perfect for showing the rules of chess, through stories.
Each chess piece has its own story and exercises that explain how the piece moves in a fun, silly, memorable way.
The board has characters that match the pieces, making board setup easy!
We’ve developed over 30 minigames that teach children the rules of chess
effectively, including a card game that encourages children to use
every chess piece.
With our custom chess pieces, the children are able to connect the
stories to the pieces more easily. By visually seeing the characters and
physically touching the pieces, children are able to learn chess
without realizing it. Each piece is designed to hold the character from their story in
order to communicate the rules of chess effectively–and have fun!
Our double sided chess board and custom chess pieces are made from high
quality, child friendly materials and are regulation size for tournament
play. Players can either use the story themed side with all of our
characters, or the standard chess side for regular chess.
Parents want to do everything
possible to get their children ahead. Chess is a game that has been
proven to be beneficial for people of all ages. Learning chess leads to
increased test scores, stronger critical thinking skills, an ability to
plan ahead, improved executive functions, and so much more. When learning chess, the younger you
start, the more beneficial it is. However, chess has rarely been
accessible to children under the age of 7. For young children, Story
Time Chess is like a set of training wheels for a bicycle. Parents can
get their children ahead by experiencing the full potential and impact
chess can have by introducing it to their children at the youngest ages
