Give it Forward: My1story Lil’ Riding Hood Plush and Storybook
“Back in September I received a copy of the My1story book I Love Cake. At that time we read it and reviewed it. I’m happy that we were able to get another copy of the book plus another Lil’ Riding Hood Plush doll to donate to Christmas is for Kids. The story is a cute one with a twist on the traditional Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale. Instead of the big bad wolf who comes and eats grandma this story features Wolfie, a mischievous wolf pup who has a fondness for cake. Wolfie follows Lil’ Riding Hood to Grandma’s house in an attempt to make off with some fresh cake that Lil’ Riding Hood is bringing to Grandma.”

In addition to the books, we were also delighted to find 2 character plush toys to accompany the stories.”
My 1story: Jack and the Magic Beans
“My girls love fairy tales, most little girls do. My daughter Jackie is a little more sensitive than some children. I never understood why she didn’t like some of the more popular stories until I learned of My 1Story. It really made me consider them in a different light. You see, My 1Story is a series of fairy tale books and accessories that focus on telling the story without scaring the child. For example: ”

“Reading to your kids has been proven to blossom your little ones into little readers in ways teaching can not and between this and setting a good example and reading yourself, your kids minds will constantly grow and expand. But there is an age old problem parents have, and that is, what to read? There are billions of books available, many of which have stunning stories. But the real trick is to find a book which is both interesting to your kids and to yourself. I personally love nostalgia, the times of being a kid are always get to recollect. One of the most fun ways to do this is with classic stories and fairy tales.”

Book & Plush Review: “Lil’ Riding Hood and I Love Cake”
“Its seems like all the classic fairy tales from when I was little have a scary aspect to them. From the big bad wolf to a giant, they are parts of stories that some of the parent’s from today don’t want to share with their children. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t shelter my children from everything as I think sheltering them completely wouldn’t prepare them for real life, but there is also a time to be a child. A company called My1story, winner of Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Children’s Products, has changed two popular children’s fairytales to put a positive spin on them. That’s right Little Red Riding Hood has become Lil’ Riding Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk has become Beanie.
MY1STORY Lil’ Riding Hood & Wolfie in I Love Cake! + Lil’ Riding Hood Plush Review *2012 Holiday Gift Guide*
“My1story is a collection of stories that have a new take on such classics as Lil’ Red Riding Hood, Jack and The Beanstalk and more.
In Lil’ Riding Hood and Wolfie, there are no scary characters. If you remember the original Little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf ate Grandma! Imagine how scary that can be for some young children. In the My1story books, the characters are not scary! Wolfie is adorable, and my two year old daughter loves pointing him out on each page. I loved the little lesson to be learned, and really enjoyed the ending! I was surprised with how much my two year old enjoyed the book. It’s rare that I can get her to sit down to listen to a story, and this time she asked for it again! I read this story two times in a row, and she sat through the whole thing!”
Perfect for Bedtime and Happy Endings!
“Do you remember fairy tales from when you were a kid? The old classic fairy tales are downright scary. I still remember reading, “The Little Match Girl”. Yikes, it was soooooo sad.
And we were read those scary fairy tales at bedtime!
Yikes! What were our parent’s thinking?
No wonder kids had nightmares. Hmmm, let’s see, just before bed I’ll tell the story of a wolf that eats a grandma???
Well, My1story has kept the traditional line of fairytales but guarantees a positive spin until the happy ending.”
My1story: Classics For The 21st Century
“I love to read and could not wait for my daughter to be born so that I could start reading to her. Through the years there have been several children’s books that have given me reason to wonder if I would want to read them to my child. It’s not that the stories are bad, in some cases they are classics, it is just that I think a small child might find them scary.”
My1Story: Beanie Plush & Jack and the Magic Beans Review & Giveaway
“Childhood is incomplete without fairytales and imaginary friends. Fairytales play a vital role that make childhood better by creating fun in your child’s world as well as delivering your kids a lifetime lesson. Although, not all stories are designed in a way to only deliver positive messages to young minds. There are stories that scare off children and the worst repercussion could be that those stories could leave a negative impact in a child’s developing mind. I am talking about stories where a character seeks revenge for something that did not go in their favor, for example, the evil witch from Snow White and the seven dwarfs, the evil lion from the Lion King, the bad wolf from the Little Red Riding Hood and the list goes on. ”

“When Jacob was about three, he suddenly developed a huge fear of anything even remotely scary. It was strange, because prior to that, he was oddly fascinated with monsters. For a few years, I had to be pretty vigilant about any frightening themes in his books or TV shows. It was a little difficult at times because the oddest things freaked him out. I wish My1story had been around back then (or if it was, that I knew about it). The stories are familiar, yet with a new, less-scary twist.

“Fairytales are a part of every child’s life and were in most cases some of this first complete story books ever read to my children. However you tend to forget even as classic stories, they have some content that can be frightening for little ones, especially at bed time! We all remember Grandma who was eaten by a Big Bad Wolf and what about mean giants, poison apples, evil step sisters, and cruel witches. When you really think about, it’s a little much for the younger fairytale fans. But does that mean they should miss out on classic characters?”

Fairy Tales With A Positive Ending
“As a parent, I have been looking for fairy tales with a positive ending for my kids. I have a hard enough time with Henry and his autism and the negative sleep issues the disorder brings. Typically kids with autism. Are very literal and unfortunately, we as parents don’t figure that out until something we have innocently said has made Henry run off in a panic. For instance, I was upset with Henry for something he did and I said something my mom used to tell my sister and I…”I am going to sell you to the Gypsies for a nickel”. Well, it only took me over an hour to convince Henry to go back to his room and unpack his backpack. Bearing that in mind, you can imagine how detrimental a traditional story book tale would be for him. For the past 5-6 years, I have been on the look-out for different stories or different ending to familiar stories that will help Henry get to sleep. Here are some great ideas for parents who are looking for something different for their bed time routine.”

“We love to read with our daughter all the time. But now that it is getting cooler outside we are spending more time inside and more time reading.

Are you ever concerned about the imagery and story lines of these books? I mean seriously ~ “Fee-fi-fo-fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman, Be he live, or be he dead I’ll grind his bones to make my bread.” That would give any child nightmares!”

“Kenzie’s library is getting use nowadays because she actually wants to read and we have started the bedtime story ritual. I know it’s a bit late in the game but hey she just started sleeping in her own bed! I love reading myself and remember fairytales being one of my favorite reading sources when I was younger.

Take the scary out of fairy tales with my1story
“Who doesn’t associate fairy tales with kids? Unfortunately, a lot of fairy tales are pretty darn scary for a kid. A little girl being chased by a big bad wolf or a giant saying how he is going to make bread from someone’s bones isn’t exactly the story you want to be reading your preschooler before bedtime.”
My1story Books and Plush
“This soft, squishy, silky Lil Riding Hood is a wonderful reading companion, with her big bright eyes and sweet smile. Providing children with props that match the books they read allows them to retell the story, interact more with the fairy tale, and instills an even greater love of reading. My preschoolers love these books and plush! As their teacher, I love to read these to them!”

Favorite Fairytales With a Twist with My1story
“How many times have you curled up with a book as your little one snuggles in for bed and as you turn each page you get that gut feeling that maybe this isn’t an appropriate bed time story after all? I know this has happened to me several times even with classic characters such as Pooh and Elmo. I’ve even found myself tossing a few select stories straight into the recycling bin. I can’t bear passing them along to another unsuspecting parent!”
My1story Children’s Book & Plush Toy Review
“Before having children, I always dreamed of how special it would be to snuggle up with my child on the sofa or bed and read them stories. Baby M is now 2 years old and absolutely loves whenever I read to him. As soon as we finish a book, he will say “Another book!” and jump up to grab another story off the shelf. It’s adorable and I’m so glad to see his love of books.”
Review: My1story Fairytales: Lil’ Riding Hood
“I have a sweet little daughter. She is very sensitive and takes so much to heart. We love fairy tales and movies featuring fairy tale characters but some of those stories have some truly terrifying parts to them especially for young children. Just yesterday I had my sweet little girl hugging my arm and turning away from the screen because of a giant shark (who turned out to be nice but was very scary none the less). So, if we want a pleasant night’s sleep without Eva invading our bedroom because of a nightmare or bad dream we need to pick pleasant stories to read to her. That is why I really liked reading Eva the My1story book Lil Riding Hood & Wolfie in I Love Cake!.”

“True story: (And it’s a bit embarrassing, so I can’t believe I am telling it!) When I was a small child about a zillion years ago, according to my 12 year old, I loved Sesame Street. A lot. My favorite character was Bert. You know, the tall, awkward, slightly nerdy pal of Ernie’s.”
