Augmented reality has been used in many areas and it has proved to be useful for storytelling. These systems are adequate for edutainment. In this paper, we present two augmented reality interactive storytelling systems that use tangible cubes. The first shows the story in only one face of the cube and the second presents the story in all visible faces of the cube. The progress of the story can be chosen using two different tangible interfaces. We have tested the systems with the children of the Summer School of the Technical University of Valencia. In these tests we have analysed if the use of a head-mounted display or a typical monitor influence in the experience of the user. Results do not offer statistical significant differences using both visualization systems and confirm that children enjoyed playing with the systems.
