Recordable Story Books from Hallmark Review {Giveaway Closed}

February 2, 2011

Have you seen the Recordable Story Books from Hallmark??  They are AWESOME. I saw these for the first time unfortunately about aSan Diego 006 week after my Mother-In-Law passed away.   She would have loved to record a story for Andrew.  She loved Andrew SO much and even in her last day of life, hearing his giggles and coo’s brought a smile to her face while she was tuned out to almost every other noise… Gosh we miss her, It makes me cry thinking about it!
But the sad part of it is, is that I didn’t see this – until after her funeral.  So needless to say, I didn’t want to make that mistake again.  I asked both grandparents to get a storybook and record it now for my kids for Christmas this year. 
Recordable_Story_Books_Hallmark_Counting_Kisses_Review_Giveaway Recordable_Story_Books_Hallmark Recordable_Story_Books_Hallmark_01
Andrew loves the books, and so do we!  We love that our kids will always have that Cherished memory of Grandma and Grandpa reading a story to them whenever they want! 
The books are made with a toddlers roughness in mind. They are made to last, which is great! The voice recordings are also made to last forever, even when changing the battery, the recording will stay there!   So this Valentine’s Day I had the opportunity to review another Recordable story book – and I thought how awesome it will be to have a story read from mom and dad, so if either of us are not around, we can read it to him still! 
I love the idea that when he is a little older and learning to read, he will be able to read along with us as well! DSC07304
So if you want my honest opinion, Hallmark was brilliant for coming out with these books, and in my opinion, they are priceless!!
They will make a great gift to your loved ones this Valentine’s Day as well – So get to your local Hallmark store and buy one today, before it’s too late!
