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!
Be sure to follow Hallmark on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date on the latest new products!

  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.
