Different by Design
Why are our stories slower, kinder, and gentler than most children’s media?

We want to create a slower, kinder, more gentle world. We believe the best way to do that is to create stories that share models for:

  • How to be kind to others
  • How to be respectful in thought, word, and deed
  • How to live in wonder and reverence for this truly incredible world

And whether your child is turning three or going on 12 years old, all of our stories reinforce these values.

"I love that I never have to screen Sparkle Stories or worry about them conveying values I don't believe in to my daughter."
Cate, Sydney, Australia
