Why a Meminto Book is valuable for parents and teens
A Meminto is a great way to catch up on what you've missed and record what you've experienced.
Even if your kids are past their teens, you can review and relive their growing up years and create a book of all your experiences: With our smart question-and-answer assistant directly on your smartphone.
You can do this either alone or together with your partner, and it's even more fun as a couple because you can motivate each other and get nostalgic.
We solve the problem with time, stress and aimlessness, and take you by the hand in a goal-oriented way every step of the way, so you won't forget and hold on to any stories from your kids' childhood.
For your child. And for you, mom & dad!
This memory book is written by you as a parent. It's really easy! Here's how:
We ask you 52 questions about your child's past years. You can answer them conveniently in the browser or in the Meminto app and also invite your partner or even grandma and grandpa to join you.
Once you're done, you can upload up to 250 pictures and additional audios and videos, design the book according to your wishes and share it. 16-20 days later, you'll have a one-of-a-kind book with hundreds of pages of your best memories from your past.

Insights and opinions
How Meminto users turn into heroes
Barbara, 79preserves memories of her mom
"We started a Meminto when my mother was still alive and we made a lot of audio recordings. Now I listen to it from the book every time I miss her. The Meminto team has faithfully helped for over a year. It was fun!"
Werner, 68Attended a Meminto course
"With just one question per week, I was able to record my life story. That was a lot of fun! I am proud of my book and am already preparing the second book."
"I highly recommend the childhood book. I made it for my son so he knows how great our family time used to be. He already loves it and enjoys looking at it over and over again."
Will, 68wrote hundreds of pages
"I wrote my Meminto Stories book mainly as a keepsake for my grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Not only was it a breeze to do, but it was a lot of fun."
Viktoria, 94answered questions on the phone
"Together with my son I have been able to record almost a century of history. We have created 16 books in German and seven in English. My family lives widely scattered. They were very happy."
"I've tried so many things, but with any travel picture, you always have to tell your friends what you experienced there anyway. That's the strong advantage of Meminto. It includes the WHOLE story."
Verena, 32enjoys reading from the childhood book
"So much more than just a photo book. Through the questions, beautiful old memories come up again. Even videos could be loaded into the book. Emotions like when it all happened!"
Jessica & Marconewly married - with a wedding book
"Our guests gathered stories about us and also recorded the wedding day for us in the book, with lots of pictures and videos. We can always pick it up and dive back in. Really nice."
Carolin, 37with a 2nd childhood book
“What I find great is the 10% discount if you make a second book for another child after the first one. And considering there's room for up to 250 pictures, it's still cheaper than a photo book, especially with 300 pages."
Maria, 63wrote no less than two volumes
"At the beginning I had the idea to write down my life story for my children and grandchildren. Thanks to Meminto's questions, my story became colorful and multifaceted. During the editing process, the Meminto support was always quick, friendly and competent to answer any questions. Now I am happy to have 2 volumes with a total of more than 300 pages."
JP & Michellewrote a Travelbook
"Our favorite feature is that you can add a video memory in your book! How amazing is that!? This truly sets Meminto apart, and that is why we chose to trust them to bind together our special memories so that they will last forever!."

Frequently asked questions
Quick answers to some questions you may have. Couldn’t find what you were looking for? Check out our helpdesk.
How does Meminto work in detail?
After purchasing your book theme, you (or the person receiving the gift) will get an activation code from Meminto, which you can enter here. Afterwards we will select 52 personal questions from our large question collection, which you can change, delete or replace indefinitely. You can also set your own questions!
Each book can hold 250 pictures in addition to the answers, which can then be printed in color on up to 300 pages (or even more, but please contact us on this) in your book.
To make sure you don’t forget anything, Meminto can email you a question every week or remind you with push notifications from the app.
Together with family and friends, Meminto is the most fun. Invite them to join you and watch as your book magically fills with stories that even you didn’t know existed!
After choosing a cover design, the book goes to print. About 12-20 days later you can hold it in your hands and proudly call yourself an author!
What happens after one year is over?
As you already know, each book starts with 52 selected questions. Every week – for one year – we will send the next question as an impulse by email, if you wish.
After this year you can continue to work on your book, but you will not receive any more e-mails.
For a fee of $16,90 this weekly motivation can be extended for another year.
Are entered texts edited before printing?
We do not make any changes to the content of your answers and stories, but print what you have written.
Before you send your book to print, however, you have the option of booking a proofreading service. We will correct typos and spelling mistakes. The costs for proofreading are based on the amount of text to be checked and will be displayed transparently.
How will my privacy be protected?
Your privacy is very important to us. No one can see your answers unless you share them yourself. If you still want us to help you, you must allow access beforehand.
Even if you fill out your book together with other participants, you can set for each answer whether it should be visible only for you or for everyone.
Additionally, our 2-factor authentication protects your account. Even if your password is hacked, no one can log in to your account that easily.
How much does a Meminto book cost?
Each Meminto Stories book is absolutely unique and therefore something very special and personal.
Depending on which story you want to record, you will always find the prices for our books directly in the respective topic. So first select what you want to write about and then scroll to the section where you can order.
You can choose between a different number of pages for the book, add additional copies and also a digital copy. This ultimately affects the total price, which can be slightly different for each book.
Will the person receiving the gift (or me) really make it?
Yes! You can do it! Why?
- Because it’s fun and enjoyable to reflect back. You’ll be amazed at what you remember!
- Because we can remind you every week to answer the next question. So you don’t miss anything and stay in the loop.
- Because you only need 2-6 minutes to answer a question. You can do it almost anytime and anywhere, even from your smartphone.
- Because our books are designed according to fixed templates. You can make simple changes, but you won’t get lost in perfectionism.
- Because the anticipation is great to hold your own book in your hands and show it to family and friends.
- Because thousands of others (to be exact: 10704!) have done it before you and written down 30745 stories. And why should they be able to do something that you can’t?Just get started now!
Is it possible to test Meminto beforehand?
Yes it is! We want you to know exactly what to expect and be truly satisfied.
You have the opportunity to start a free mini-book here. Instead of 52 questions, we’ll pick nine for you to start with. If you like how we remind you of situations you may have forgotten and you are comfortable with the Meminto software on your desktop PC or smartphone, you can also upgrade directly.
