Story Time

Story Teller was published in Australia and New Zealand as Story Time. It had a similar logo to the UK Story Teller with the same design and fonts.

In Australia, Story Time only ran for one series, so the final issue (part 26) did not contain the double-length (90-minute) tape or the special preview magazine for the next series. This was the sole difference between its UK counterpart; the cassettes and artwork were otherwise identical.

Fans in New Zealand, however, were treated to the second series, as can be seen in this photo:

The cassette carry case sold in the UK was also available in Australia. However, in New Zealand, a smaller box was provided, made out of cardboard wrapped in a red plastic with small domes at the corners joining it all together and a piece of Velcro for the flap on the top

Of the Christmas specials only Christmas Story 2 was made available in New Zealand or Australia, under the title of Christmas Story Time.
