We gave moms the latest product from Hallmark, Hallmark Text Bands. The way the product works is kids create a message on their text band and then bump fists/high-five with a friend. Voila...the friend gets the message they typed and your child gets their friend's message.
Check out what these moms have to say about the Hallmark Text Bands. Then, let us know how your kids communicate with their friends.

I have a 10 yr old Girl and 8 yr old boy. My daughter doesnt really make friends. I have noticed that shes very controlling plus shes kinda grown. I keep tryin to get her to stay her age but my S.O. makes it impossible. I Love my daughter but she is becoming more and more sneaky. Im not a single mom but I always feel in some areas I am because we view the situation different

Thank you for the post. My son is 11 and I wasn't sure if this would be something he would be into.
My dd and her BFF tried the text bands out. They had fun thinking of different messages to send one another.
My dd is almost 11, she thought they where cool, but a bit " too young" for her. The fun wore off after a couple days. She thinks it would be cool if you could type a longer message, and if there was an easier way to type them.
My DS on the other hand , he is 7, thinks they are the coolest thing in the world. He has played with DD and had endless fun.
We found that doing a " fist bump" transferred the message easiest.
Overall they are fun, DS is still using them, DD is barely using them ( more to entertain her brother).
Great product, all around
