I saw this adorable little guy yesterday while running to Hallmark for some last minute wrapping supplies.
I admit I was first drawn to it because of the adorable stuffed husky. Im a huge stuffed animal fan (shoulda seen my childhood collection) and I am always tempted to fill Drake's room with a multitude of stuffed friends, but after taking a closer look I discovered that this was no ordinary plush doggie. Jingle (that's his name) is an interactive dog! He comes with a story book which when read aloud, certain key words, allow Jingle to participate along with the story by woofing, whining, singing, etc. How neat is that! I actually read a review about him online that came from a elementary school teacher who said that Jingle got her class interested in reading. Many of her students were struggling with reading but once Jungle came into their class it was a fight as to who got to read the story so that jingle would respond to them. I never thought about how useful a toy like this might come in the future in helping Drake read. I love reading myself and I hope to instill a lifelong love of books in Drake. Right now Drake cant read obviously but his daddy and I read to him before bed. Drake is in love with his Scout dog we got him for Christmas (and gave to him early). He loves watching Scout's blinking light and listening to Scout sing or talk to him. I figure if we got Jingle and read his story to Drake he would love it when Jingle barked and woofed and it would keep him interested in the story more. I am hoping to pick up a Jingle after the holiday season but I entered to win one as well in My Organized Chaos's Giveaway You can enter too (ends today at 9 PM MST)
