Hallmark Interactive Story Books and Story Buddies

December 6, 2011

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.

DSC01132Your Kids will love them too!  You can purchase these Story Buddies at any Hallmark Gold Crown Retailer – and on Amazon.com.  They vary in price from $29.99 – $39.99

Win Them!!!!!!

One Lucky Winner will receive Jingle and Cooper Story Buddies!  (ERV: $70)

    My computer is acting up big time so this may be the reason but I found no where to comment on the HCG diet for my comment entry above. I find this diet harsh. I went to get a by pass surgery and due to my health was unable so I tried to follow the very low carb diet. It is very hard. I made my own tweeks to it and still loose about 40 lbs a year. I give you very much credit for doing as well as you are. The problem with these diets are once you get off them the weight comes back, be careful. Healthy weight lose is 1-2 lbs per week. Good Luck!
