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.

Check out what some of our influencers had to say about the Hallmark Text Bands.
I have two boys, one nine and one seven. They have had an absolute blast all day! They thought it was super-cool that they could exchange messages by fist-bump, high-five, or clapping their hands together!
What I really like about these things is that they are pretty easy to use, and they also have a bad language filter :) You can customize them a little bit (get new covers to put on them).
They made up their own games by coming up with their favorites: animal, color, toy, food, etc and then bumping or whatever to exchange. It was fun to see them try to guess what the other's answer would be before exchanging messages, and then actually seeing them read one another's answer afterwards.
Oh my gosh, we just got our bands an hour ago and are already having so much fun!!! My son has shared with his sister, me, my brother, our neighbor and we can't wait to show daddy...These bands are so cute and I know we will have a lot of fun when our friends come over to play:)
My daughter calls it her secret spy watch and is sharing secret messages with her brother and neighbor. They love giving each other five and knuckle bumping to share the message. I can see these bracelets will be favorites here. Thanks for the opportunity to try them :)
My girls put them on and did not stop playing with them. I wish every kid had these because my girls would LOVE to be able to just high five people and see their secret message. These are awesome!!
Krys1025 says:My girls 9 and 12 are having a blast with them. We went to a birthday party and lots of kids commented on how cool they were and they wanted them. So, we told them they would be available at Hallmark and to put their name on the waiting list.
Read on to see what other moms had to say.

No, you have to be right there and either shake hands, high-five, fist bump,etc for the message to pass to the other peron's band.
by bmw29July 23, 2012 at 11:27 AMMy son is eagerly awaiting his text bands. He has already decided who the second one will go to and can't wait to share the news with her. I'll update when they get here. :)
