It is like Christmas in July thanks to Hallmark! Hallmark headed to Comic-Con this year in the lovely city of San Diego. Visitors to Hallmark’s booth got a first look at some new products for 2012, including new Recordable Storybook titles featuring Batman, Superman and Cinderella. What? You didn’t go? Me either, but let me tell you about some of the awesomeness that you will find this season at Hallmark to please the comic book and pop culture fans in your life.
My girls are begging to see Brave. We have been gone so much this summer though that it hasn’t been possible. Yet. This week though it is on our agenda. I pinky swore. In this ornament Merida is drawing her bow readying it to shoot. Merida, with her long wild red hair, is perfect down to the last detail. Hallmark ornaments not only delight our children (or who am I kidding us too) at Christmas but also years later they allow us to remember back to why we purchased that special ornament and the wonderful memories come rushing back.
This month Hallmark will debut some new ornaments from their Keepsake Collection. The Amazing Spiderman could grace your tree this year or perhaps you would prefer the Dark Knight. There will be romance in the air as Edward and Bella dance their first dance as husband and wife (ornament not animated). I see this topping the lists of many Twi-Hards this season. Check out the Hallmark Website to find out all the fabulous new Keepsake Ornaments that are arriving in stores as I type!
I love Hallmark’s Recordable Storybooks. Love them! Last Christmas we had the grandparents read The Night Before Christmas and instantly it became the most requested night time book. I tucked it away until this year so that we will enjoy it for many more years to come. My heart melted when I saw Cinderella’s Recordable Storybook The Wish My Heart Makes for You. *sigh* Immediately I knew that it would be my husband that read this book for our girls. The look on their faces when they opened the book and it was their Daddy’s voice was one that I won’t forget. Surprise, big smiles, and then they settled in to have him read them their bedtime story even though he was across the country on business. Hallmark’s Recordable Storybooks are the best!
Want to see a 6 & 5 year old’s eyes light up? Give them something techie that they might not normally get to have. Hallmark Text Bands are just that! Create your message up to 10 characters and then simply bump fists to exchange messages.
What fun! For me it was fun watching them try to fist bump and miss, thus our oldest giggling uncontrollably. After going through how to type the message and send it they were off doing it on their own. There are a bunch of different bands you can buy to show your child’s personal style. Learn how to play interactive games with the Text Bands on Hallmark’s Website or have them use their imagination to come up with their own.
Again Hallmark has knocked it out of the park with their new ornaments and books. In our hectic lives it is one way that you can be sure to keep up on businesses we love and I continue to love Hallmark and all of their products. You can also download the Hallmark Go Cards app and stay in touch on the go.
One winner will receive a Hallmark Hallmark Comic-Con gift pack (ornament, recordable storybook and text bands).
