Armenian, Azerbaijanian, Georgian, Estonian, Lithuanian and Latvian girls and boys will open your mind. If you are impatient, it is left up to you to open the doors of the house to meet the story telling time. You come into the wardrobe, where you can find folklore clothes, accessories and other things that will help you to enrich your look and style; into the kitchen, where different smells, spices and recipes are waiting for you as well as sweets from Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia or one of the Caucasian country. In the library you can read books, watch films or listen to music which are reviewed by other children and teenagers, but in the roof you can get to know how to create interesting things or what other children can to do.

So, so! Nearly everything happened without me! Lets get to know each other, I am the eternity inhabitant. So old that I even cannot remember how old. Noone can see me, but I am and listen, see and feel what happens here. There are a lot of interesting things although I do not understand everything. Nevertheless, I have experienced a lot, I often become doubtful and undedicated. I like it, when someone convinces me. Sometimes I bother others, because I want to clarify something that I didn't understand. But I reaaaaly like what is happening here. What's my name? I am the Story trifle.
