Jingle's Good Deed
Doesn't work with original Jingle
Highly disappointed this did not work with the original Jingle. It is such a cute little story. I have been waiting for a new book to come out. My daughter received Jungle for Christmas and lives his story. I thought this book would be great because she loves birds and she can use Jingle other than Christmas. Well he doesn't work well with this book. He responds to a few phrases but not all. If I wanted to but a new interactive toy it wouldn't be another Jingle.

We have the original Jingle book
We haven't gotten to buy the second book but my kids love the original. I look forward to being able to buy the next one. The reviews below seem to be for the old ones. We got ours in 2014 on sale and have the Interactive buddies 2. I can't help but wonder if there was a glitch with the original ones or they had to update the programming for some reason.....maybe they would even trade them in for the newer one since it truly isn't fair to change the software so the old ones don't work with the newer books.
What I can say though is that the newer ones are all buddies 2

my daughter receive this book for christmas and was very excited to use it. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with the original jingle. This was very surprising to me since I looked all through the book and no where in the book does it state that you need a Jingle made after a certain time. Was it only expected that folks would want 2 books? Or was the thought that kids would want to give up their stuffed animal for a new one. Very disappointed. I will not be recommending this type product to my friends.

A Very Sad Mom
We own last year's model of Jingle and were very disappointed when we started reading this book only to find out it didn't work with our Jingle. I think it is in VERY poor taste that Hallmark is essentially forcing parents to buy a newer version of the doll in order for the book to work. Not cool.

well Hallmark you've lost some sales from me
I can't believe the new Jingle books do not work with the older Jingle models. I bought the original Jingle for my daughter and then the follow up book last Christmas. Hallmark just lost a sale from me because I will not be buying this book. Did Hallmark really think children would want to replace their already loved Jingle toys, don't they know how attached children can get to these kind of things. I was going to buy Bell this year but what's the point when Hallmark expects me to replace her in a few years too. I would have liked to get the Jingle and Bell story book too but I see that wont work my old Jingle either.

Disappointing - Book does not work with all Jingle dogs
So disappointing to bring home a "great job on your reading improvement" reward for my child, only to discover that Jingle does not respond to this book. The description does not say that this book will not work with certain Jingle models, but it will not work with our Jingle, which is a one year old model. (Our tag is dated May 2011, Jingles in store today are dated June 2012).
