Jabberstamp

Groups

Jabberstamp is the first tool that allows children to synthesize drawings and voices. To use Jabberstamp, children create drawings, collages, or paintings on normal paper, and then press a special rubber stamp onto the page to record sounds into their drawings. When they touch the marks of the stamp with a small trumpet, the sounds play back, retelling the stories they have created. Jabberstamp can be used to embed names, narratives, characters' voices, and environmental sound effects into drawings, helping children to communicate their stories with peers and adults, and allowing them to record and situate stories in personally meaningful contexts to share with others�before they have mastered writing.
