Before you do, please check below for answers to some common application support issues.
And thank you for your interest in our apps!



How do I contact your support team?

Please email us on support@storytoys.com. We strive to respond to queries as soon as possible and are available between Monday to Friday.

Can I contact your support over the phone?

Our support is available via email only.

If I am unable to restore my purchase, what are the general checks before contacting your Support?

Please ensure:

  • You are using the same Apple or Google Play ID that you used to make the purchase
  • You are not using Google’s Family Library
  • You are not using any parental controls or a child’s restricted profile. For further information please see Android, Apple, Amazon

I have checked the above and am still unable to restore my purchase, what do I do next?

Please email us explaining the issue with the below details and a member of our team will be in touch:

  • Name of the app
  • Model and OS of the device used
  • If available, a screenshot of the message received when you tap ‘restore purchase’

Can I transfer my purchase to a different account?

Please note that your purchase is linked to the account used at the time of purchasing/subscribing to the app. Unfortunately this cannot be transferred to a different account. Please contact our Support for further advice.

Why am I unable to hear audio on your app?

Normally problems with sound are due to the fact that the mute switch on the device is engaged. This can be a little confusing because not all apps obey the mute button, but ours do, so while you will be able to hear other apps, you would not be able to hear ours.

All you have to do is toggle the mute switch which is located on the side of your tablet or smartphone. Once you toggle it you will hear sound again. If there is no mute button please slide up the menu from the bottom of the iPad screen to find the mute button icon.

If you still cannot hear sound, please try the following: Go to Settings > General. Under “Use Side Switch To” please ensure that the “Mute” option is selected, and not the “Lock Rotation” button. Then ensure that the Lock / Unlock setting is switched on (to unlock). You might have to restart your device afterwards.

Should you still have issues, contact our Support with details of the model and OS of the device you are using.
