Hallmark Text Bands

Hallmark Text Bands

I’m pretty sure if I gave W a phone, he’d be texting me already. MAMA DUICE. Which is W speak for Mom, may I please have some more juice?

Okay, so maybe that wouldn’t happen quite yet. But he knows how to work some of our other technology pretty well. I can only imagine how young he’ll be when he starts asking for a cell phone. Everyone wants to text, even those kids who might not be ready to have a phone yet. Luckily there are now Hallmark Text Bands!

The bands are a great way for kids without phones to still experience texting with their friends. They’re also pretty stylish and could be a blast to collect!

Bump & Share with Hallmark Text Bands

Bump Fists

I first learned about Hallmark’s new Text Bands when I was in NYC at BlogHer. I had the opportunity to spend a lovely morning experiencing some of the great new products Hallmark has coming. As an elementary school teacher, I immediately spotted the Text Bands. I can see them being extremely popular with the girls in my school.

They are a fun way to get the experience of texting. It’s easy to type in a message on your band. Although you’re limited to 10 characters so it’s best to stick to one word. Then all you have to do is bump fists or shakes hands to pass the message on! You can even high five to send your message to the other band. So simple and so fun!

Hallmark Text Bands Connect in Style

Connect in Style

One of my favorite things about the Text Bands (besides the fact that they come with batteries hooray!) is that there are a variety of stylish bands to choose from. Each starter pack is $14.99 at your Hallmark Gold Crown Store. Then additional bands can be purchased for $4.99 each.

Interchangeable bands remind me of exactly the type of thing I would have been into when I was in elementary and middle school. Hallmark offers a wide variety of designs from Pink Glitterati and Camo Breeze to Star Wars and Minnie Mouse! So kids can have fun connecting with friends while showing off their style!

As a teacher, I think these could also be a fun way to practice spelling words! The possibilities go beyond having fun with friends to make learning fun too!

Who in your life would love to connect with Text Bands from Hallmark?

    What a cute little idea, I’d love to get each of my kids one and let them bump them together all day sending messages :)

  2. Amanda N. says

    This might be a lot of fun for kids to play with. Definitely not something I’d want on the wrist of a child in school or anyone who’s driving, though! :-)

  3. Jennifer Mae Hiles says

    Those are cute and they would be perfect for when my niece spends the night to play with my step daughter! I can see them now in a “home-made” tent (my sheets hung over the couch) “texting” each other as they sit back to back!

    HOw cool are these?!? I’d never heard of them before now. I think this is such a great idea for kids who really don’t need a cell phone yet. Way to go Hallmark!

    my 10 yr old and her BFF would love this! Love the fact that there is a word filter so they aren’t using inappropriate words

  6. amy williams says

    my boys would just love these they are not old enough for a cell but still want to try to text on mine they would have so much fun.
