Our Story

women founders of storytime toys kara dyer sara argue

 

Storytime Toys is a boutique design and manufacturing company that brings beloved children’s books to life as playsets. Founded by MIT engineer/designer Kara Dyer and RISD artist Sara Argue, Storytime Toys’ mission is to preserve old-fashioned, screen-free playtime by harnessing the immense power of story.

We've put time-tested characters from favorite tales at the heart of our toys that combine reading with art, building, and imaginative play. Familiar names and faces catch kids' attention, then a world of interactive possibilities empowers them to make their own stories, letting their creativity fly!
