When my children were younger I started telling them bedtime stories about Hancock, a bicycle, who was like other children, liked to have fun, went on adventures, had a great imagination, etc. He was different though, after all he was a bicycle. The stories were great, imaginative, fun…. Since then, I have started telling Hancock stories to my grandchildren, and to others’ children. Every child I have told Hancock stories to has loved them.
There is “Hancock and the City Under the Sea,” “Hancock Goes to the Water Park,” “Hancock and the Wild Animal Park,”… (the list goes on of Hancock going to different places, and doing different things, with his friends Bobby and Eleanor, and sometimes others), and there are the series with ongoing episodes, like “Hancock and Horace the Giant,” “Hancock and the Orb Planet,” “Hancock and the Apple Hill Portal,” “Hancock and Sammy the Great White Shark”….
Hancock is good in science, and has invented an interesting device called the imagination ring, among other things. His buddy Bobby is a techo genius that has invented ways for Hancock to transform when needed, so that he can do the things that he and his friends want to do.
Recently, I have felt a need and desire to record good Hancock stories to share with others. Soon, Hancock stories will be available at www.hancockstories.com, a podcast setup, and other means. Eventually, I see a radio show, books, TV shows, and even children’s movies of Hancock story episodes.
I am very excited about this. The creative juices are really flowing when I have a group of kids gathered and start telling a Hancock story. The best stories are when the kids interact and tell me what happened next. Sometimes, they know exactly what was going to happen. I keep wondering how they know this.
I look forward to creating and sharing great Hancock stories for all who want to hear them. As the following and audience grows, of kids and adult kids (parents) who listen to and love Hancock stories, it will be a great dream come true.
