Interactive Story Buddy Jingle All The Way Review (Hallmark)

What It Is

Storytime comes to life this Christmas season with interactive story buddies from Hallmark. Interactive Story Buddy Jingle All the Way is an interactive stuffed animal that responds to his book, audio CD, online content, app, and DVD. As you read aloud certain parts of the included storybook or play the included audio CD, Jingle will chime in with a bark, howl, or other dog sound effects. You can also go online to or download the free Jingle All the Way app to interact with Jingle.

Additional Interactive Story Buddies are also available: Bell the Husky Pup, Scooby-Doo, Nugget the Dog, Christopher the Sleepyhead Bear, Bigsby, and Abigail the Bunny. Each comes with an interactive storybook and read-along CD.

Is It Fun?

Kids will get a kick out of hearing Jingle respond to them as they read the story. This is a really cute stuffed animal that makes a great storytime, playtime, and bedtime companion.

Who It’s For

It is recommended that kids ages 8 and up read to Jingle because clarity and speed of reading affect Jingle's response. However, this is likely to appeal to younger kids also, so for the best results, parents should read to them.
