Hillary Chybinski: a new discovery. . .

a new discovery. . .

yesterday i had the pleasure of taking Owen and hanging out with some of my Philly SM Moms at ClassyMommy's house to check out a wonderful digital storybook.

Are you familiar with MobiStories?  I wasn't either - but I sure am now.

Here is what the founders of MobiStories have to say about Digital Story Books:

  • "The founders of Still Motion Media left their jobs to fill two needs.  The first was to spend more time with their young families.  The second was to develop a product that could supplement the story time experience that their children only received at bedtime.  While nothing should replace a parent hugging a child and reading a book together, MobiStories are there whenever that can’t happen."
It was a little busy at the event, and Owen could spare only had a few minutes to play with the Digital Puzzle Book- but he LOVED the touch-screen action of putting a puzzle together.  Last night before bed, I broke out The Marvelous Toy story on my iPhone and he and I sat together and went through it twice - he really seemed to like the music, and being able to make the images on the page "do things".

I am impressed with how gorgeous the images are - I love the music and the whole idea of the product. . .but I was struck with the beauty of the colors and the images over and over again.  I shared it with a friend over coffee this morning, and she agreed.

My plan is to download a Puzzle Book or 2 and one of the independent reader stories for John's iPad - to amuse the kids.

If you have checked out MobiStories, or this post sparks your curiosity - stop back and let me know about it - I'd love to hear about your experiences.

Thanks to Colleen and to MobiStories for such a great time!

catch you soon -

note:  I was provided with a code to download one digital story book for free.  The company did not ask for a review in return and as always the opinions expressed on my blog are my very own.

  1. It was fabulous to see you in my own home vs just on Twitter. Owen is adorable. Thanks again for coming.
