Question Examples

With Meminto you will...


Some parents think about it early on, and put all their energy and creativity into recording the growth of their children with great photo books. Others are a little more reserved. But even if there are a lot of photo books, you don't remember all the stories around the pictures very well. And maybe other experiences have already been completely forgotten because you just don't think about them anymore?!

With the Meminto Stories childhood book, we help both types of parents, the “picture book parents” and those who like to record the experiences with their offspring in retrospect. With our questions you will quickly remember key moments from the life of your children or grandchildren!

What I like best about Meminto Stories is that it is so easy to use. Questions, answers, pictures, done. The templates for the books are nice and I can customize it to my own needs.

We have made a book for each child and are currently on the third one. From time to time in the evening we take it to hand and read it out loud. Without the collection of questions we would have forgotten 80% of the stories.

I love it! I have to brood and laugh so often when I dive into the questions and really think about how it was with us. And then I just start writing. I am happy to have had this chance to give Klara the chance to read everything.

I am now a triple grandmother, and have started such a book for my son, who is already 33, so that his children know what he was like as a child and teenager. It's really like remembering everything when asked, I have been amazed!

I read about Meminto Stories on Insta and bought it for my sister because she had a baby. She says that it is way more easy to finish than a photo book and that it helps her remember things better.

Not right now, but maybe later?

Remind later

It's not a good time right now, but you want us to remind you? We'd be happy to. Tell us when and where to send the mail:

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.


You or the presentee will receive stories at the start with Meminto Stories:

  1. Access to over 250 questions, as they are asked by your child, via Computer or Smartphone, which helps significantly with remembering
  2. A pre-selection of the most relevant and best 52 questions, exchangeable at any time
  3. A weekly reminder, to answer a question (by e-mail or phone)
  4. The possibility to, allow family and friends to participate and to fill the book faster and better
  5. A printed copy of the book with up to 300 pages including shipping and VAT

Yes, if you do not want to answer a question, you can simply delete it. You will then be assigned a new question.ย 

Questions that are not quite right for you, you can simply change them.

Via our “Discover Questions” function you will find many more questions that will help you to get creative at the push of a button.

For My child & me the questions are put to the parents from a child's perspective. Examples:

  • How has your life changed after my birth?
  • Why did you choose my name?
  • Who were my friends in kindergarten?
  • Were you able to talk to me openly about sexuality? Why (not)?
  • In which moments were you especially proud of me?

Our users find, that it is easier to make a Meminto Stories book than a photo book. It takes them on average 2-6 minutes to answer a question because they know exactly what they can write and what images to add. That means you can do it practically “on the side”, without much effort.

On the other hand, you can take your time and don't rush! You have 5 years to write your book.

For printing & shipping your book we need about 7-10 days at the end.

Of course a book is more exciting when it covers a longer period of time. But even if your child is only 1.5 – 2 years old, you can already answer more than 50 questions that we choose for you. The story doesn't start with the birth, but with the pregnancy, because there are great stories to tell.

Besides, you can start at any time and don't have to go through the book in a few days. Take your time, add thoughts and work on it from time to time. Some of our clients plan to start it at the age of 1 year of their child and finish it by school age. Then there are many stories that the offspring can read and relive…

Meminto Stories was developed more for remembering forgotten situations in retrospect. That means if you want to travel again through the first six years of your child's life, it's perfect. (Or through the first 16 ๐Ÿ˜‰)

However, you can also do it as an accompaniment, something like a diary. Then it takes a bit longer to create, but the memories are fresher.

So you have the choice!

It is technically possible to make one book for several children. However, this then means that all children will receive the same book.
In this case, you would simply answer the questions in several paragraphs and always put the name of one child in front.ย 

However, you can also decide to make everyone their own personal book. The great thing about this is that we have so many questions that sometimes the second or third book will have completely different questions and answers, and stories, than the first! So it's going to be very different books. So make two if you want to give each one something of its own.

๐ŸŽซ Our sibling deal: You get 20% off any book you start for additional kids. To do so, please contact us by email:

We do not make any changes to the content of your answers, but print what you have written.

Before you send your book to print, you have the option to book a proofreading. We will correct typos and spelling mistakes. The cost of proofreading depends on the amount of text that needs to be checked and will be displayed transparently.

Your book will be produced with a hard cover in DIN A5 (5.8 x 8.3″) format. It then has up to 300 pages and is printed in color on natural paper. We have prepared some templates for you and every month there are more.

Before you release it, you will of course be given the opportunity to view and change it.

At the beginning you will receive 52 questions selected by us. But you can answer as many questions as you like, so less or more – that's up to you. A Meminto book can have a maximum of 300 pages.

It is important to us that you can concentrate on writing after you have paid once. That means no subscription, no hidden costs, full transparency.

Yes! Right at the beginning you can decide whether you want to order just one or more copies. You will find out the prices for the additional copies during the order process.

Even after your book is finished you can always order more copies.

Your privacy is very important to us. No one can see your answers unless you release them yourself. If you still want us to help you, you have to allow access before:

Even if you fill out your book together with other participants, you can set for each answer whether it should be visible only to you or to everyone.

Of course: Simply select whether the Meminto Stories access should be for you or for someone else. Then choose the date on which you want us to give the gift to the person. The person will receive an e-mail with a greeting card of your choice on that day and can start to relive and record their own experiences.

Yes! You can do it! Why?

  1. Because it is fun and joyful to remember back. You will be amazed at what you still know!
  2. Because every week we can remind you to answer the next question. So you don't miss anything.
  3. Because you only need 2-6 minutes to answer a question. You can do this almost always and everywhere!
  4. Because our books are designed according to fixed templates. You can make simple changes, but you will not lose yourself in perfectionism.
  5. Because the anticipation is great to hold your own book in your hands and show it to family and friends.

Just get started!

Meminto Stories-

A project of the โค๏ธ

Meminto Stories is my personal concern against forgetting. Because our time passes so quickly, because we like to look back on experiences and also because diseases like dementia are spreading more and more, I would like to do something about it. With every book you create, you help to do so.

Thank you for participating!
