      Hi Lisa

      It’s a year later…if you don’t used your magazines…I’d love to buy them from you. I have all the cassettes of both volume 1 and 2..but no magazines!!!!! What’s the copyright on the magazines – does any one know????

    Hi Guys,

    I found a website that is uploading vidoes of the original recordings Story Teller 1 and 2 so that you can listen to them. The vodeos also have the magazine pages so you can still read along. So far they have uploaded 52 vidoes in no particular order.

      Sorry Guys,

      You have to go to http://www.alfflove.com, then Index and MIsc Info then ALFF certificates, achievements and more. The link I posted doesn’t work.

      Regards

    You can get the complete collection as a torrent file, if you’re not too precious about illegal downloading (the copyright on these is still in force).

    Although I am completely opposed to pirating, I did download this set because I already own the tapes and magasines from when I was a kid, and you are within your legal rights to transfer what you already legally own to a different media (e.g. CD to iPod…tape to CD…magasine to PDF).

    Go to http://www.thepiratebay.org and search for “story teller”. This will give you a list of two possibles, pick the first one and your internet explorer will download a “torrent” file – this is just a text file telling a torrent browser where to go and look.

    Download and install uTorrent (for windows) or Transmission (for linux), and then open the storytell.torrent file in it. It will then sit there for 3 days downloading it (it is 6 gig of data) and downloads slooooooooowly!

    The set includes mp3s of Story Teller 1 and 2 and the christmas specials, PDF copies of all the magasines, PDFs of all the cassette inlay cards, and a load of extra bonus stuff.

      Aggy – do you have any intention of selling them? I am desperately trying to find a copy for my grandchildren

    If I would like to broadcaste these videos available on Youtube to school children, how can I go about doing this? I could purchase CD collection but this is going to be for wide dissemination under a curriculum which is being designed by our foundation for value creating education amongst schools in India.

    Please let me know how to go about this.

    Warm regards

    What a treat this blog is! My sister and I were massive Story Teller fans. My Nan used to buy them to keep us quiet during lunchtimes in the school holidays, and we adored everything about them: the voices, the artwork and the PING! that told us when to turn the page. We listened to them again and again, and long after we were really too old to. My Nan passed away 5 years ago and seeing this blog brought back so many warm memories of turkey drumsticks (before Jamie Oliver ruined them for everyone), Nan’s cardigans (tissue always in sleeve) and those rare’s moments when my sister and I weren’t fighting. Please keep the blog up forever!

    I adored storyteller and listen to it via youtube on my ipad. I have set up my own youtube account, locate the story (via storyteller – Marshall cavendish on Wikipedia) here it lists every single story and who read it. You then type this into youtube and save it under your login. Then you have every single part work together, it’s the story and the book. I love it xxxx

    If anyone is looking for the Story Teller 1 and Story Teller 2 with all three Christmas editions I have the tapes and magazines (the magazines have never been used). I also have the tape insert card index for series 1, preview fliers and a not for sale preview magazine for Story Teller 2. There’s a poster for series 1. Sadly the cassette tape for Story Teller 1 tape 3 is missing although we have the box and no 11 is missing completely. On the plus side there are 2 copies of tapes 17 and 18 so could be swapped for the missing ones. Looking to sell if you’re interested please let me know. Located in West Yorkshire have photos if you would like to see them. Could sell as two separate sets or complete. Would consider offers for just the Christmas editions if of interest to you. Thanks.

        Hi Helen, apology for the late reply, my collection is stored away in my loft, let me get them out (hunt them out, in the mess I call a loft) and I will be able to see exactly what’s there, inc any of the little story tellers, if you have not by then purchased Maria’s collection, I will figure out a price for you, one that doesn’t make your eyes water, after all they are just books and takes, I won’t be silly with the price due to sentimentality

    I was going to share them with my kids, I’ve got 4 children, 2/ girls 2 boys, but my boys are 12 and 7 and not into reading, or stories, its all football and XBox, my girls are 9 and 5months, one is too old one too young, p!us I couldn’t bare it if they ripped or drew in them, and they have. Bad habit of doing that. But I did get years of joy from them, I think times have changed, we loved a good story, now they like a good computer game or app on there tablet

    I see a few people are looking for the Story Teller 1 and Story Teller 2 with all three Christmas editions I have the tapes and magazines (the magazines have never been used). I also have the tape insert card index for series 1, preview fliers and a not for sale preview magazine for Story Teller 2. There’s a poster for series 1. Sadly the cassette tape for Story Teller 1 tape 3 is missing although we have the box and no 11 is missing completely. On the plus side there are 2 copies of tapes 17 and 18 so could be swapped for the missing ones. Looking to sell if you’re interested please let me know. Located in West Yorkshire have photos if you would like to see them. Could sell as two separate sets or complete. Would consider offers for just the Christmas editions if of interest to you. Thanks.

    Hi. I collected vol 2 as a young girl & loved lord of the rushy river amongst other tales. I gave my collection away (stupidly) to a younger cousin & have no way of tracking this down now. I would love the collection of vol 2 with or without tapes tbh but cannot pay over £100. Pls get in touch with what u would accept as an offer on that. Feel free to txt or watsapp. 07805138166. Thank u
