{Holiday Gift Guide} Hallmark Recordable Storybooks

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×


Last year, I was so happy to share with you the new Hallmark Recordable Storybook series. These are innovative books featuring favorite classic stores that allow you to record your voice reading the story so that when your child turns the pages, it automatically plays each pre-recorded page. (the sensors seem to be light activated).

The book comes with real easy to follow instructions on how to record the book. And no worries on if you get nervous or mess up, because you can re-record each page until it’s right. And then “lock” the book so that it doesn’t get erased – even when the battery wears out!!

Some more ideas for ways to use these ingenious books:

  • Little ones love being lulled to sleep by a familiar voice. Record yourself reading a bedtime story to give your child sweet dreams when you’re away on business, out for the evening or any time you can’t be there in person.
  • Is your spouse serving overseas? Capturing the voice of the soon-to-be-deployed parent is a great way to help a child feel connected during Mom or Dad’s absence. Also, a Recordable Storybook read by the little ones and mailed to the enlisted parent will be a great surprise and a breath of fresh air.
  • Use a Recordable Storybook to help improve your child’s reading skills. Listening to the recorded pages while following along is an easy lesson that never feels like homework!
  • Capture the voice of an ailing loved one for years to come for a family heirloom that’ll be treasured.

This year, Hallmark Recordable Storybooks not only record a reader’s voice directly into the book; they now feature music! People can read or sing one of six holiday classics — including three new titles — and participate in holiday story time with loved ones even if distance causes them to be apart.

A Charlie Brown Christmas (New for 2011)

This beloved story captured the hearts of millions when if first aired on television in 1966 and, now, it’s available for children and adults to enjoy again and again. This family favorite will help you communicate the real meaning of Christmas while also celebrating treasured traditions.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town (New for 2011)

Inspired by the beloved holiday song “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” this Recordable Storybook builds anticipation for Santa’s Christmas Eve visit, and ends with a sweet message in your own voice. Let your child sing along with your voice and create your very own holiday tradition.

The Night Before Christmas

A holiday favorite, this book tells the classic tale of Santa’s visit on Christmas Eve with new illustrations and musical enhancements. This book allows you celebrate the season with loved ones, even if you can’t be present on the actual night before Christmas.

Frosty the Snowman

This book tells the story of Frosty, the playful snowman who came to life one day. Whether you read it or sing it, this Recordable Storybook makes a perfect gift to share with kids (or kids at heart) at Christmas.

The Very First Christmas & La Primera Navidad

Share the true meaning of Christmas with your loved ones. This beautiful retelling of the first Christmas will become a treasured keepsake when you record it in your voice for those you love most. This Nativity story is now also available in Spanish with English subtitles.

Hallmark also introduces a new type of recordable book — Conversations to Keep™ Recordable Interview. Adults ask the questions; little ones record their candid answers. This is one conversation that will last a lifetime!

The Magic of Christmas Conversations to Keep™ (New for 2011)

Recordable Interview provides holiday questions to spark kids’ imaginations. But the answers are ones only they can give!
