Tuck these dice into a pocket and get ready for anytime fun. Roll them, see what surfaces, then use the pictures to spur a story. With 9 cubes and 54 images, the options are endless, so these little guys can be used over and over again. As kids play, they boost literacy skills, exercise creativity, and have fun at the same time. Just as entertaining alone as in groups, story cubes are great for parties, traveling, or just a fun evening at home with the family. Best of all, their small size ensures they won't take up too much space in a toy closet or travel bag, so any time can be story time! (Gamewright, $8.37)
