Meet the Team

The Children Story Time team includes local Minnesota members and remote members from around the country. Our storytellers, animators, designers and other employees are excited to deliver this innovative tool to children around the world.

Meet the Children Story Time Team!

To create an extraordinary app like Children Story Time whose software is a unique combination of video games, storytelling, and vocabulary-building engagement in 3D gamification format, requires a top-notch team of experts from many different technical and creative areas. From the animation of the characters to the writing of the stories themselves to the creation of the many cool interactive and customizable gamification features, there are a lot of moving pieces that make up Children Story Time. To ensure all the pieces fit together smoothly requires cooperation, communication, and flexibility – which is what the CST team is all about.
