Hallmark has you covered this Holiday! #Review

Hallmark has you covered this Holiday Season!  Hallmark is know for their wonderful cards and even Christmas Ornaments, but they offer so much more.   They offer  Text Bands  which allow kids to send text messages from wristband to wristband, expressing themselves and spreading encouragement in a fun, new way. How? Kids enter up to 10 characters into the screen on the band and bump fists or shake hands to pass the message. The bands light up and the messages transfer from band to band.

They have your One Direction and Justin Bieber Fans covered as well! Send some Bieber mail this holiday season!   Hallmark also lets you be part of the story with their  Interactive Storybooks and Story Buddies. The most famous is good old Jingle and now his gal pal Bell.   But this Holiday season there are even new characters, like Bigsby!  Bigsby is a shy guy who goes on adventures with his best friends. Kids will love watching him come to life as you read key words aloud from his books, read-along CD and more.   Bigsby’s four coordinating books—Bigsby’s Best Friend (included with Bigsby), Bigsby's Borrowed Shoes, Bigsby's Big News and Bigsby in the Big City—contain key phrases that he'll respond to. Each book reveals more phrases and more things for Bigsby to say.

Counting down to Christmas is one of my favorite things to do.  We have a felt Advent calendar and a wooden Advent box we fill each year with treats.  So can you imagine the kids excitement when Hallmark sent us the North Pole Countdown Keepsake Ornament!  This adorable ornament gives updates from the North Pole daily, starting on December 1st.  Just turn the dial once a day  and Reindeer Dash Deerbuck will let you know what’s going on! It is pretty comical the things he comes up with!

Did you ever think about using your old Holiday cards as decorations? Yup... Look at how creative the folks at Hallmark are! They used cards to make place-mats and napkin rings.
