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.

by SnapItSeptember 25, 2012 at 2:57 PMIm finally putting my input on the band
Been busy moving since i has recieved them in the mail
My kids are 13 and 11 and although this may be a bit young for them they enjoyed it.
I personally think the advertising on the packaging of these bands is somewhat misleading. I let the kids decide on their own before opening the boxes and just reading the packaging they quickly assumed they could text anyone from afar
Once they put them on to figure them out it went smoothly. They had fun for a few mins.
This is more for ages between 5 and 8. My kids are a bit older and it only caught their attention for a few minutes. Its a good learning tool for the younger age group that are learning how to spell words.
The only thing my kids mentioned was the scrolling for each individual letter, but they got the hang if it.
Overall it was an entertaining TOY. This is the only issue i have about the advertising of this item. No where does it indicate its a toy. When you first read the box or the wording on the packaging, you would assume its a texting gadget like a cell phone. It is nothing like a cell text. You have to be in front of the other band and you need to bump hands for the message to transmit to the other band. You can't clap your hands in one room while the other band is in another room. Its like using infra red to send the message instead of wifi face to face.
Cute TOY for the younger generation to pass the time. It can come in handy if you are taking a car trip with 2 lil ones in the back seat.

they only communicate with their friends when they see them. no calling or texting
