We’ve Discovered the Easy Way to Teach Chess for Kids as Young as Three

Chess is one of the most popular games on the planet and, if you’ve ever played it, you most likely know why. It’s entertaining, strategic, engaging and just a little bit addictive! 

If you’ve never played it before, then now’s your chance to not only learn the game but help your little ones learn how to play chess too, thanks to this beautifully-designed Story Time Chess for kids.  

Teach your children how to play chess (even if you don’t know how to!) 

Story Time Chess is made especially for children and brings the world of chess to life in a way we’ve never seen before. It teaches chess through imaginative play, silly stories, vibrant illustrations, custom chess pieces, and a unique chess board.

Discover the magic kingdom of Chess

Story Time Chess involves more than just a standard chess board and pieces. It comes with a whole kingdom of fun, all designed to help teach little ones the ins and outs of chess.

There’s a storybook that showcases the rules of chess in a way that captivates even the youngest minds – stories! We all know the magic powers of storybooks and Story Time Chess has taken this magic and brought it into the game of chess. Genius, really!

And this is just the beginning of the fun. Every chess piece has its very own story and exercises to explain how the pieces move in a fun, silly, memorable way.

Plus every piece isn’t just a King, or Queen, or Pawn – instead, there is a cast of colourful characters, like King Shaky, King Chompee and Queen Bella, to make it even more engaging for them. You meet all of these characters in the storybook too.

The board itself also sticks to this story-time theme with squares that match the characters so children can easily set up the game without help.

Flip the chessboard over and it’s a standard chess side for regular chess too, ideal for older kids who have mastered the Story Time version. 

The easiest way to teach chess to your kids

The way Story Time Chess is able to transform one of the trickiest games to learn into something that three-year-olds can easily comprehend and enjoy, is quite amazing, really!

Of course, it’s not just for three-year-olds – it’s for children of all ages (and parents) who will love not only learning the game of chess through Story Time Chess but playing it over and over again.

After all, chess has been around for years. 1500 years to be exact, so chances are, a lot of friends and family members play it too. This makes it an ideal choice to bring to the table at family gatherings when the grandparents are visiting or even for older sibling play.

Family fun for all 

Playing Story Time Chess with your little one is just as fun as supervising their play with others. Watching their eyes light up and seeing their little minds ticking as they process each character, how they move, and where they can go – it’s one of those core memory parenting moments.

Not just for you, but as a core memory for them too. And hopefully, an activity they will continue to want to do with you for years and years to come, even when they are grumpy teens. You’re never too old or too cool for a game of chess with Mum!  

Even if you’ve never played chess before, you can master it alongside your child. It’s a beautiful way to bond all the while doing something that is entertaining but also advancing their academic performance. 

A game of imagination and intellect

Chess, after all, is a game of intellect. What Story Time Chess does is bring imaginative play into this arena of intellect and sharpen several important skills. 

Story Time Chess can: 

  • enhance arithmetical skills
  • improve verbal skills 
  • sharpen critical thinking
  • boost emotional intelligence
  • encourage problem-solving and cognitive memory function 

Built to last a lifetime

If you’re after a good chess set for kids, then Story Time Chess is the end game. It’s crafted to absolute perfection and the quality of every element – from the double-sided board to the beautifully crafted pieces, is above and beyond.

Chess is a board game that should last for years and years, something that can be handed down to the next generation and Story Time Chess certainly sticks to this tradition.
