Ani-mates Plush Toy Review & Giveaway #Animates ~~ Bring Bible stories to life

This post may contain affiliate links or I may have received the product free in exchange for my honest review. See full disclosure for more information.

New, interactive plush toys from GoBible, the leader in audio Bibles, Ani-Mates are talking stuffed animals that bring over 30 preloaded, professionally recorded children’s Bible stories to vivid life for young listeners. They feature mouths that move in simulated speaking as digitally recorded Bible stories play through hidden speakers. Plus, with a free app, children can see the stories on a smart phone.


I received the adorable, brown Ani-mates bear.

Animates Bear


Ani-Mates will be available in November 2013 online at Ani-Mates websites and through leading Christian retailers.


  • Variety—Over 30 children’s Bible stories, preloaded and professionally recorded, offering more than an hour of listening
  • Production Quality—Stories told by kids to kids, featuring sound effects that enhance the listening experience.
  • Flexibility—A toggle switch hidden in the Ani-Mate’s paw lets users quickly select a particular tale from more than 30 stories, no need to play all the way through to hear a favorite.
  • Personalization—With the push of a hidden button, parents, grandparents or friends can record a 20-second greeting for the toy’s recipient, and it plays each time the Ani-Mate is turned on.
  • Visual Experience—Each Ani-Mate features a cord that connects the toy to a smart phone. Download a free app, and a child can hear the story told and watch pictures from it on the smart phone screen. (The bear and puppy’s paws are designed to clutch the phone and hold it upright for a fun viewing experience.)
  • More Stories and Features—With additional apps for sale, the Ani-Mate continues to add to its library of Bible stories and visuals.
  • Communication—Connected to any cell phone, Ani-Mates act as a speaker (with the mouth moving with the sounds) so a child can hear a parent, grandparent or friend’s voice “spoken” by their toy . . . and they can reply to the caller through the Ani-Mate as well.
  • Quiet Listening—An earphone jack allows a child to enjoy stories from their Ani-Mate in any setting, without disturbing those nearby.


I love that Ani-Mates are completely interactive and provide kids with something to hold, touch and love.  Unlike a video game that only provides entertainment on a TV screen, Ani-mates gives children that physical interaction, as well as the listening of some amazing tales of the bible.


The Ani-Mate’s interactive toy has more than 30 stories that take young listeners through the life of Jesus, including:

  • Jesus’ Baptism
  • The Beatitudes
  • Jesus’ Miracles
  • The Crucifixion and Resurrection
  • And much more

This would be the perfect addition to any child’s Christmas wishlist.  What nicer way to celebrate the birth Jesus, than hearing loving stories of his life with Ani-Mates. Priced at $49.95, pick one up today.


I have enjoyed my Ani-Mates bear and it has really brought some great interaction with my daughter.  Ani-mates would also like for one lucky fan to win one of their very own.
