I have felt that sharing my faith and teaching my children has always been an important part of being a mother. Recently we were given a truly beautiful toy/product to review called Ani-Mates (thanks to Mom Select and Ani-Mates). Ani-mates are stuffed animals, either a puppy or bear, that brings bible stories to life. With a moving mouth that recites over 35 preloaded stories and songs, each Ani-Mate has over an hour of audio built right in.
You can also hook your Ani-Mate up to a smartphone and download apps (some free) to have even more fun. When you do this, you get a video of the bible stories right on your phone. These make a great gift for a little one too. You can record a message to them right on the Ani-Mate and, if you live long distance from a special child, the Ani-Mate can even act as a speakerphone for your calls!
I love the Ani-Mate bear we received almost as much as my kids do. He has become a special part of our nightly routine. My kids love to sit with him and listen to bible stories that the bear “tells” them. I would definitely recommend you give these a thought if you have a little one in your life. They would be a perfect gift for a preschooler who loves to hear bible stories. You can purchase an Ani-Mates puppy or bear for only $49.95!
If you live in the US, I have one Ani-Mate to give away. Enter below to win this special toy and bring the bible to life for a little one you know!
