Hallmark Interactive Storybuddy Review

What does the holiday season mean to you? Perhaps it’s a time to celebrate with family and friends and the love you share. Maybe it’s about reflecting on memories you share. Whether it’s one of the above (or all ), here are a few ways that Hallmark can help “Bring the Holidays to Life” as the most wonderful time of the year draws near!

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing some amazing holiday items from Hallmark such as: the Interactive Storybuddy, Hallmark’s new Holiday Recordable Storybooks and the newest Signature and Interactive Greetings cards. The Recordable Storybook I reviewed is called Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. With this book you can record a story for someone and it doesn’t matter where you are. Record your story and send it right to them. Or send them the book and have them record and send it back. This is such a wonderful concept and perfect for anyone with a loved one faraway. No worries, recording your story is really easy to do. This is a well made product and sure to put a smile on any little ones face. And a memory never forgotten.

The books are filled with beautiful illustrations and music, you can add your voice to a holiday story that can be replayed over and over again. Some holiday titles include All I Want for Christmas, Jingle’s Magic Christmas and Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.


  • Plays music on every two-page spread.
  • Features Voice Save Technology.
  • Hardcover; 18 pages.
  • 8.5″ x 10″
  • 3 AAA batteries included

The next item I reviewed is called the Jingle Interactive Story Buddy, Jingle the Husky Pup. This is Hallmark’s first Interactive Story Buddy, back for the holiday season!

With new technology that lets him respond to even more fun formats! This plush toy chimes in when people read key phrases in the book that comes with it. This also came with an audio CD and online and mobile games that the Story Buddy interacts with, as well! Be on the lookout for Jingle and his new friend Bell.

Hallmark’s Story Buddy is a wonderful gift to give this Holiday Season. And well made making for hours of entertainment. My son and I had a blast playing the app we found to go along with the toy for the iPad. The app also has a story the dog interacts with as well as games, puzzles and more!


  • On/off switch
  • includes 2 AA batteries.
  • 6.5″ x 8″ x 9.5″
  • Hardcover and 32 pages long.

And lastly I received Hallmark’s Signature and Interactive Greetings Cards. These are cards that feature new technology like movement and recording. These designs help bring Christmas life. Such as:

  • Some cards have a functioning clock that counts down the days to Christmas
  • Cards with decoration items
  • Personalized cards that you can customize with your own photos and messages

I absolutely love these cards and have never seen anything like them. The Snow Globe card I received has a button you push on the bottom right corner that makes the globe work and look like snow is falling! This is simply a beautiful card. And the other card that reads “Joy To The World”. Well that’s actually something you can take off and use for decorating or an ornament for your Christmas tree. These are all such wonderful products for gift giving this Holiday Season. I personally recommend Hallmark as a brand you can trust will put smiles on everyone’s face this Holiday Season.
