Go Back To School In Style With Hallmark’s Textbands With a Giveaway #textbands #b2sspree

by Linette

I went to BlogHer a couple weeks ago, and while I was there I got to attend an event put on by Hallmark and preview their Back to School and Holiday line for 2012! I was really excited to check it all out, because I’m a big Hallmark fan! One of the cool new items I got to check out was Hallmark’s new Textbands for kids. These new bands are aimed at the tween market, those kids that are craving technology but not quite old enough for a cell phone yet.

Textbands let kids store short text messages up to 24 characters. The characters scroll across the screen and spell out the message when you hit the button. You can change the message by typing in a new message, or by bumping Textbands. That’s the fun part! When two Textbands get close to each other, or if kids bump wrists they can trade Textband messages! The transfer happens wirelessly, so the bands just have to be close, and don’t have to touch. This could be fun for students passing in the hall between classes, or at a party to pass along fun messages to one another.

There are 2 different starter kits out right now, purple and charcoal, both pictured above. There are also several different color and patterned bands available, and several more coming out in November.

There are also character bands like Minnie Mouse, Cody Simpson and Star Wars.

I think kids are going to love these! They’d make great birthday party favors, or stocking stuffers this holiday season! They’re way more fun when you have two, so buy one for yourself and one for a friend!

If you’d like to purchase your own set of Textbands you can visit your local Hallmark Store, or locate the store nearest you at Hallmark.com.
