Although the passing down of family history and memories through the art of story telling is something to be cherished, that doesn't mean we can't have a little help with the act. This pen holds the ability to glide over a scrapbook full of memories and tell the stories of yesteryear, yesterday and even today!Even though sitting down with your kids and telling them about the good old days is all and well, that doesn't always mean that the times our kids want to go through scrap books is the same time we have open to share with them.
You might be cooking dinner and taking a conference call while they're off reading to themselves. There's nothing wrong with that, but we think this cool tool to make your scrap books and photos albums come alive is rather cool.
Certain photos are tagged with small stickers (up to 500 of them!) and you simply speak into the device and record a thought of memory about the photo. You can plug in the device via usb and back up your memories online as well (better safe than sorry). We love the idea of someone being able to share stories, even if a photo album was created as a gift and given to Grandparents, or vice versa to Grandchildren who live on opposite sides of the country.
• The Photo Album Story Teller is available from First Street for $99.95.
