Story time is such a special time as a child: cuddling up next to mom or dad, getting lost in a fun story, and relaxing in those pajamas. Hallmark is striving to make those moments even more special with their new Interactive Storybooks and Story Buddies.
Via voice-activation technology, the plush story buddy responds whenever an adult reads key phrases from the storybook. These cute little stuffed animals help make story time magical and bring stories to life for the children listening to them.
Hallmark offers 1 Holiday-themed storybook with a story buddy named Jingle, as well as 4 any-time storybooks with buddies. They are all equally adorable buddies with wonderful stories.
These would make really great Christmas gifts for kids who love story time. Hallmark sent me the Jingle story buddy for review, and I can’t wait to put it under the Christmas tree for my sons to enjoy. I know they will love it! You can head over here to check out these great storybooks, as well as get a video demo to see how they work.
And guess what else? One lucky Cha-Ching On A Shoestring reader will win a Hallmark Interactive Storybook and Buddy – your choice!
