Hey, kids, and welcome to the TV Tropes page for Kid Time Storytime! Pictured: Hooty, Abuela Bear, Maleficent, Doug, Curious George, Corny, Gerome, Minnie Mouse, Red Bear, and Two-Tone.
Kid Time Storytime is a YouTube channel where a woman named Eileen (who goes by "Storyteller") reads children's books.

It's basically just like a normal kids' story channel, but with two differences. One is that Storyteller sometimes interrupts the stories to comment on them, and another is that before, after, and sometimes during, every story (well, almost every story), Storyteller has conversations with a group of toys.

Each toy is given its own name and personality, and there are quite a few, including Doug the dragon/dinosaur hybrid, the bears Red Bear, Pink Bear, Green Bear, and Abuela Bear, Maleficent, Two-Tone the cat, Hooty the owl, and Corny the unicorn.

The official website can be viewed here.

Please note: The examples refer to tropes about the channel itself or the conversations with the toys, not the books being read.

  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal:
    • In the reading of Dinosaur Vs the Potty, Doug is wearing a cowboy hat and bandanna.
    • The bears wear bows around their necks.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Green Bear, Red Bear, and Pink Bear are exactly what you'd expect.
  • Brown Note: Parodied in the reading of Once Upon a Zzz, when Hooty and Corny fall asleep before they can read the title, while Maleficent doesn't. She claims it's "black magic", but it isn't.

  • Funny Animal: The teddy bear family are depicted as talking and bipedal.
  • Grumpy Bear: Maleficent is the complainer of the group.
  • A Lizard Named "Liz": Several characters have punny names about their species, such as Corny the unicorn and Hooty the owl.
  • Not a Morning Person: According to the video for Welcome to Morningtown, Olivia the Ostrich sleeps late because she stays up late.

  • Owls Ask "Who?": Hooty only speaks in "hoo"s, which is sometimes treated like he's asking, "Who?".
  • Pink Means Feminine: Discussed in the video for Pink Is For Boys, when Pink Bear talks about how people make the assumption that he's a girl because he's pink.
  • Potty Failure: In the video for the Dinosaur Vs book "Dinosaur vs. the Potty", Doug remembers wetting his pants as a little kid and feels bad about it.
  • Pun: The autumn playlist is called "Autumn Stories to 'Fall' For".
  • Santa Claus: The channel has a whole playlist of "Santa Claus stories".
  • Shout-Out: In the video for The Lying King, Green Bear thinks they're going to be reading The Lion King.
  • Sick Episode: In the video for Dragons Get Colds, Too, Doug has a cold.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Storyteller translates Hooty's hoots and Two-Tone's meows.
  • Speech-Impaired Animal: While Two-Tone mainly just meows, in the reading of "Belling the Cat", he says, "That was the end?!" in a meowy voice.
  • Unicorn: One of the toys is a unicorn puppet named Corny.
