Digitize Your Bedtime Stories

Craft & Design


Chris Connors @ MAKE writes:

Do you have an extra mp3 player or four in the house? Do your kids like to hear your bedtime stories? How about archiving them and setting up your kid with an audio player that will allow him or her to play them back at any time? With a couple of computer speakers, or a DIY audiobear, your child can hear your voice telling your best stories at any time, night or day. After making the recordings, you may find that you have an heirloom audio session that can be passed down for generations. There are plenty of ways to customize your Storybear, plush knobs, speakers, remote control, and you could make the doll yourself.
