Making Special Family Memories with Hallmark

Making Memories is Priceless.

I just adore this precious priceless scene I was able to snap a photo of and I have Hallmark to thank for it. We received a Holiday Interactive Storybuddy (ours was a husky named Jingle). If you haven’t seen these they are just adorable and we are thrilled to finally have one! It comes with an electronic friend and a book. As you can see we received a puppy named Jingle. As we read through the book Jingle on cue would bark and make puppy noises! It really brought the book alive to my kids. And what was especially precious is that we gave this set to our youngest son who was quite obsessed with Jingle. My oldest son immediately grabbed the book and started reading it to his little brother so that he could help his new Jingle dog bark!

It also comes with a CD. Hallmark also makes a pink puppy Interactive Storybuddy as well. It’s an amazing technology and I love that as we read the story to our kids Jingle will chime in with us.

We have read Jingle’s story over and over and over again. In fact last week on our road trip from Iowa to Colorado my son insisted on bringing Jingle with – he hasn’t missed a night to sleep with him! I really want to get the Jingle Hallmark ornament now for my son for Christmas so I will always be reminded of how much he loves Jingle! In addition to my son’s new obsession over Hallmark’s Interactive Storybuddy you may have heard of their Recordable Storybooks.

We were very familiar and love Hallmark’s Recordable Storybooks but I hadn’t seen their holiday ones! I loved reading Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer for my son so that he can have me “read” it to him any time of the day (or night)! The boys grandma had given them one a few years ago and they still listen to it on a regular basis. We’ve never had to replace batteries and the book is in fantastic shape!

Plus did you know that you can order Hallmark cards and customize them online? We received a few of the Hallmark Signature cards and I just loved them!! I immediately knew who I was going to send them to! The card on the left has a small button at the bottom of the page which makes it snow in the snow globe! And the card on the right has glittery red shoes and fabric on top of the card for the skirt. They were so cool!

I am thrilled to be able to offer a special giveaway for one of my readers!! One of my readers will win:

o   An Everyday or Holiday Interactive Storybuddy

o   One of Hallmark’s Recordable Storybooks

o   A selection of the newest Signature and Interactive Greetings from Hallmark
