A couple weeks ago Text Bands launched and became available in Hallmark stores nationwide.
If you haven’t had a chance to check them out, I have to tell you they are pretty darn cool!
By far my kids’ favorite thing to do with them is play ‘Spy’. They type in secret messages to each other and then hide around the neighborhood. When they sneak past one another they high five and their top secret messages are swapped. 🙂
My kids even get the neighborhood kids involved. We have several bands and they take them up to share. Unlike other texting toys you can buy, these aren’t limited to just 1 other device. You can share messages with anyone who has a Text Band.
Text Bands are even customizable. You can purchase a skin that come in many different patterns/colors, and more are slated to be released soon. The favorites by far were Mickey Mouse and Star Wars, however, my daughter is really looking forward to the Hello Kitty skin that will be released soon!
I let my kids each choose a skin, their choices were no surprise to me.
As mentioned before, Text Bands are available exclusively at Hallmark Stores. They retail for about $15 and the skins are $4.99.
Do you think your kids would enjoy them? Be honest, do you think you would have fun with them too?
Thanks to Hallmark, 2 lucky readers will win a set of 2 Text Bands!
