I have a great giveaway for you guys today! The wonderful folks at Hallmark have come up with some great fun stuff and I am super excited to share with you!
This all started back when we first got pregnant. See – we live over 4 hours from all of our parents – so we aren’t going to have grandparents around all the time. And I honestly got a little bummed out about that and started thinking about ways that we could involve them in the Lil Man’s life. Then I saw the Hallmark Recordable Storybooks. Those of you that went to Blissdom might remember that we were gifted with one.
Recordable Storybooks work by letting you record your voice reading each page of the book and then “save” that story so it can be told over and over. As you turn each page in the book – your voice plays reading each page individually.
As some of you may remember – we have a book theme going on in the nursery. So for me – this was the perfect gift for our parents to regift back to our Lil Man! I wanted to give one to each of our parents so that they could “read” for the Lil Man and we would have that story forever. To me – this let us have a couple of key benefits.
1. Lil Man gets to hear and learn his grandparents voices.
2. We have a wonderful memento of our family and loved ones.
3. Even when Mommy and Daddy don’t have the energy to read, they can still share a story with the Lil Man – all you have to do is turn the page!
When I talked to Hallmark about it – they were totally on board and offered to send my Mom one for her to try out in honor of Mother’s Day. I totally forgot to take pictures of her with it – but it was super easy to figure out how to use. There are instructions right on the inside cover and with each page you can re-record if you mess up – or get a little weepy! :)
And Hallmark was generous enough to offer one Recordable Storybook for you guys too! And in honor of Mother’s Day they are also offering two of their new Postage Paid Card Packs! They sent me a card pack to review and I have to say they are really fantastic! The cards are all really cute – I love this one! (We are totally a funny card family!)
And the best thing with these cards is that you can just sign them and mail them. The postage is already included – which is really fantastic! No running to the post office to grab stamps – which I never have any more because we pay all of our bills online! And the cost of the cards is around $3.99 and I have paid that much for just a regular card before.
So we have one Recordable Storybook and two Postage Paid Card Packs up for grabs! So what do you have to do to enter? First – hop over to Hallmark’s site and pick out which of the Recordable Storybook titles you would like to have. Then come back and tell me which one you want in a comment.
