Dear Kirsten:

We think you’re referring to Goosie Cards. We too stumbled upon the link while looking for fun products. Goosie Cards turns your own photos into flash cards to use with baby. It’s a great way to help children recognize objects because they are seeing things familiar to them – their own crib to learn the word “crib.”

It’s also a great way to keep baby familiar with loved ones who may not live so close. Make a set of grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles cards. Also, you can make a set of action cards with photos of baby crawling, walking, crying, eating, etc. We think it’s a great idea.

Goosie Cards allows you to upload your photos and choose the corresponding text. Each card is 4 ¼” x 7 ½” and is printed on heavy card stock and laminated so you can wipe them clean. Custom card sets start at $28.

Any Nursery readers order from Goosie Cards previously and have a review?

(Kirsten wrote us back to say she answered her own question; she was thinking of Smiling Goat cards. You can check them out here.)

(Thanks, Kirsten!)
