Have you ever seen those children’s recordable storybooks by Hallmark? I have always assumed that they were cool, but probably complicated to record. Plus, the $29.95 price point was a bit expensive in my opinion.
Well, DaySpring (which is the faith division of Hallmark) offered to send me a few to try out + offer y’all at stellar deal, which of course I said yes to! You know how I love books and deals. (Be sure to read to the end of this post, because the coupon code is AMAZING.)
Today I am giddy to share this with you.
First, a little about these storybooks . I had some sent to my in-laws in Maryland (who are in their late 60s/early 70s) and a few sent to my family in Wisconsin (ranging in age from mid-50s to my grandma, who is 87). When I went home to visit my new nephew, I showed the book I Love You Head to Toe to my grandma and asked if she would want to record a story for my kids. I said that we could do it together, thinking I would really need to help her.
Nope, it was so easy, I basically just sat there.
All you do is open the little battery case, push the button to record, page by page.
If you aren’t satisfied with a page, you can rerecord just that page (not the whole book!). Once you complete the book, you slide a button to lock it so that little two-year-olds won’t try to rerecord anything (not that I would have experience with that).
Once we finished recording it, my family gathered up to listen to Gigi’s story. Everyone loved it – from Adeline to my Uncle John. It was so cool seeing my family sitting together, listening to my grandmother’s voice reading a story about how much she loves my kids.
Y’all, my kids sat for an hour reading/listening to those books over and over again. Honestly, it made me tear up because they only see their grandparents a few times a year, making those books incredible treasures. The kids call them their MawMaw and PawPaw books. Plus, because the books are by DaySpring, the truths of scripture are woven into the stories.
Now, the deal.
This is 70% off the lowest price on the item! Check out these prices:
$4.50 for the ones that are on sale for $14.95
$5.98 for the ones that are on sale for $19.95
$8.98 for the ones that are $29.95
I have NEVER seen these books so cheap and after experiencing how amazing these books are + how much my kids love them, I basically want to buy a dozen to keep in my gift stash.
These are the perfect gifts for Christmas. Have nieces or nephews that live far away? Buy one or two of these books, record them and send them for Christmas. Or, do I like I did and send them to your kids’ grandparents to record!
Remember, DaySpring offers free shipping if you spend $50 or more. If you don’t want to buy $50 worth of books, pick up a few other Christmas gifts while you are shopping.
I guarantee these will be some of the most precious books your children own and they will delight in reading them over and over again.
