So we all know how awesome Hallmark has been in deepening the meaning of Christmas and making the Holidays more memorable.

And if you’ve been a reader at my blog for any period of time, you also know how I feel about Hallmark Recordable Story Books as a gift to those you love.

imageHallmark has some new items out which make for a Great Christmas Gift– called Hallmark Interactive Story Books and Story Buddies.  They are so adorable – and are equally as entertaining!

Story Buddies come in a variety of animals and each animal has extra books you can purchase as well.   Find the perfect gift to suit your child:


While reading the book with your Interactive Story Buddy – a few select phrases that are spoken trigger your buddy to react or comment back.

For example: In Coopers Book, on a few of the pages you’ll read, “Cooper, I Love You.”  and then the Stuffed Cooper the Bear says ‘I Love You, Too’.  He also reacts to some statement’s using some other phrases as well.


To take the Story Buddies even a step higher – there is a Free downloadable App that coordinates with each Story Buddy – so even without you reading the book out loud to them, they can have the iPhone, iPod, or iPad nearby – which will read the story, OR you can even record your own voice reading the story!

I’m excited for my boys to open these gifts up on Christmas Morning!  It should be so fun watching their reactions to the animals in their arms that are responding to the story! And I know Andrew will love the App on his iPod.
