Hallmark Interactive Storybook and Story Buddies - - Written by Ben
"Meet Watson, a clever little raccoon who will steal your heart. Kids will love watching him come to life as you read key words aloud from his books: Watson and the Case of the Sneaky Stealer (book included), Watson and the Case of the Missing Acorn and Watson and the Case of the Little Lost Caterpillar."
Each new book unlocks new phrases
Available from Hallmark and other retaillers.
These are true gadgets, the kind that i'm sure wish we all had as kids, a cuddly toy that you read a story to and it responds!!! how cool? its as simple as switching on the Buddy before you read your little one thier bed time story, when you read the line highlighted in green your Buddy responds.
The voice recognition on this is amazing, we have been showing this little fella off to all our friends who are as equally as impressed as we are.
Tommy loves it and laughs his little head off to Watson's responses.
The thing i like about this most is the fact that it doesnt try to replace us as a parent, it doesn't tell the story for you, it makes story time more exciting for your little one (and you).
Its a great addition to your bed time routine and just to increase its tech status, Watson also has his own app. download it here
There are three other Story Buddys available, each with their own set of stories and all have apps available:
