Now that my son can read, he really enjoys reading almost anything he can. I received this Bigsby Interactive Story Buddy with a book, read along CD, a free app and access to digital story time online. Bigsby, an interactive story buddy that responds as you read the story which is included. Bigsby’s Best Friends is about Sam the outgoing, friendly new kid in town who follows giant footprints on the ground, only to find the extremely shy Bigsby. Sam treats Bigsby like he would anybody else, and the two become fast friends. Bigsby learns the power of friendship.
Not only is he super cute, my son likes the interaction when reading with him. There are three other Bigsby books available: Bigsby’s Borrowed Shoes, Bigsby’s Big News and Bigsby in the Big City, each containing key phrases that he’ll respond to. Each book reveals more phrases and more things for Bigsby to say.
Hallmark offers a whole line of Interactive Story Buddies. Other story buddies include Jingle and Bell (husky pups), Cassidy (a horse), Winnie the Pooh, Scooby Doo, and a variety of bunnies and bears.
