Just hearing the name Hallmark makes me feel all warm and sentimental. I enjoy giving and receiving Hallmark cards. Whatever the occasion, they always seem to have the perfect way to express my feelings. They also have a lovely selection of gift and decor items. Each Christmas I look forward to decorating my tree with the Hallmark ornaments I’ve collected over the years.
Story Buddies are a perfect fit for Hallmark. They make great gifts and can create good memories.
When I first saw them, I thought they would read the story out loud while your child followed along in the book. That would be a cute idea, but Story Buddies are much more than that.
They don’t read the whole story, but they interact with the child (or adult) who is reading by responding to verbal cues in the story. When the Buddy hears a specific word or phrase, it responds appropriately. The whole interactive experience is really fun and encourages children to read and use their imaginations.
There are several different Buddies available. Each one includes a book and other books can be purchased separately. We love the real raccoons that visit our home regularly, so we like the Watson raccoon Buddy. There is also a new special holiday edition Buddy, Jingle. He’s very cute and you’ll be able to see him on a Halmark Channel special that’s premiering November 25th.
The Buddies are really soft and cuddly. They are great little friends to play and read with!
WHERE TO BUY – Story Buddies are available in store only.
