The Story Behind StoryBoards
Back in 2011, when I was a young mother, my sister sent my two-year-old daughter a set of dollhouse furniture and figurines for Christmas. I hadn’t grown up with a dollhouse and was instantly smitten. I made my daughter a dollhouse out of cardboard, as it was the only thing we could afford. While I was drawing scenes for the walls and floors, the idea for StoryBoards was born.
When my daughter turned three, I created the first prototype of what then was then called “Dream Homes.” It was kind of a mess! Soon after that, we moved across the country to Upstate New York, and then to Houston, the San Francisco Bay Area again, Florida, New Jersey, and now North Carolina. As my family continued to grow (and move from place to place) so did my idea! Now that we are settled, it is time to share StoryBoards with you!
It took several years to get the idea just right–even now we are only in the beginning stages of what we dream StoryBoards will become. But we are so excited to finally launch our StoryBoards Paper Collection and we have big plans and high hopes for StoryBoards in the future!
What are StoryBoards?
Each time you pick up a toy and begin playing, you are creating a Story World for your toys to inhabit. StoryBoards are scenes that make your children’s Story Worlds come to life! Use your own furniture and dolls to complete the scene!
StoryBoards are meant to be foldable, portable dollhouses for your children. Set them on the floor or table, bring them outside or on an airplane trip, and watch your children’s imaginations come to life. Children will delight in setting up their own story worlds and bringing their toys to life.
The StoryBoards Paper Collection includes StoryBoards scenes, flooring, crafts, recipes, and more!
Each StoryBoard is unique and hand-drawn by Melinda Joy.
Right now, StoryBoards is a digital product only, but we have big plans for the future!
