Hallmark Story Buddy Review and Giveaway!

Hallmark always has some of the best gifts for any occasion but I've had my eye on a Story Buddy for a while. I've wanted to get my daughter one from the moment she was born! For review purposes, I received Bigsby, the fun furry giant. Bigsby is a goofy looking stuffed animal that kind of reminds me of the giants in Where the Wild Things Are. Even though Bigsby is a giant he is actually quite shy. Bigsby enjoys going on fun adventures with his best friends and children love hearing Bigsby respond to them while reading about his awesome adventures. 
Bigsby responds to key words when read aloud from his interactive books, read-along CD, online story, and Best Friends app. Each Interactive Story Buddy has additional story books ($9.95) that can be bought separate from the original starter kit ($34.95), including Bigsby. The starter kits all come with a specific Hardcover book and read-along CD. Bigsby's book, Bigsby's Best Friend: Sam, is 32 pages long with gorgeous vibrant illustrations. 


Bigsby's Best Friend: Sam is about the new kid in town who is very outgoing and friendly. One day, Sam follows the giant's footprints only to find an extremely shy Bigsby. Sam and Bigsby become best friends while Bigsby learns the power of a great friendship. It's a super cute story that any child is sure to enjoy! Head in to your local Hallmark or check them out online and give the perfect gift this Holiday season!

**I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. I was in no way compensated for my opinion as they are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine.**


  1. Kids will love the stories and being able to interact with the buddies!

  2. The interaction the children will have, not just a plain story read to them.

  3. I think it is good because they encourage children to listen to the story and maybe learn how to read it themselves.

  4. These books can be heard over and over again, and the buddies encourage the children in a fun way to read.

  5. that they respond to the child while they are reading

#HintingSeason with LG OLED at Best Buy

Thereviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
#HintingSeason is upon us and if you're anything like me, only top-of-the-line electronics will do! The LG OLED TV at Best Buy is on the top of my wish list this year, but, LG's latest display technology is something you must see and experience to fathom the perfection of it's picture quality. 
The LG OLED TV delivers the ultimate display with Infinite Contrast ratio that measures and exhibits only the most radiant whites and profound blacks while offering a more lifelike viewing experience. This is something that has only been seen in our dreams until recently! OLED self-lighting pixels are able to switch on and off individually, offering the first infinite contrast ratio. But, that's not all... By increasing the color range and clarity, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology provides the most illuminated, vivid colors. LG's 4 …

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…

Rent College Textbooks and Save Up to 80%!

This is a "sponsored post." The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value. 

I recently went back to college to work on my Bachelor of Science degree for Nutrition. It's been about 7 years since I've had to purchase college textbooks and let me tell you, the prices have gone up dramatically! I registered for a Sociology class but had to drop it because I couldn't afford the book which was $239! That's outrageous!  I understand that I could always sell the book back to the school at the end of the semester, but, you and I both know that the colleges only offer you a fraction of what you paid. Plus, there was no way I could afford that book on top of my $200 Statistics book, graphing calculator, and two other textbooks needed for classes.  I like to save as much money as possible, especially on things I'll only be using for a short time. This is exactly why I'm using for the other two …
