Hallmark is always ready for special occasions and holidays and Mother's Day is no exception. The company has worked hard to take Mother's Day cards to a new level with a variety of innovations, including light and animation, as well as pop-ups with mechanics so complex that a card designer works with a Hallmark paper engineer to design and construct it!
Review: These cards are truly amazing. They were each unique in their own way with bright and vibrant colors and fun accessories like three-dimensional properties or a song. I am sure these will bring a smile to any mother's face!
In addition to the cards I received, I had the pleasure of reviewing some great "Moment in Time" products that allow your little one to create a priceless Mother's Day gift that you are sure to cherish for the rest of your life.
Canvas Art Kit: Artwork and crafts are timeless Mother's Day gifts but Hallmark has taken it to a whole new level with their recordable artwork. In addition to creating a canvas painting, your child can capture their voice and the story behind their artwork! Equipped with a canvas panel and Crayola washable paints, the little artist creates their masterpiece which is inserted into a 9"x9" recordable frame. Your child is able to record up to a 40 second Mother's Day message. It is available for a very reasonable price of $14.95.
Review: My daughter is the little artist of the house and she could not wait to create her masterpiece. The paint was high quality and she made an adorable gift for my Mother-in-law. She learned a new song at school and decided to sing the song to go along with her rainbow painting. LOVE IT!! Check out the video here:
Conversations to Keep: Recordable Book: "Mom and Me" and "Grandma and Me" Recordable Books are filled with open-ended questions such as "What does Mom do to show she loves you" and then your child records their answer. I can't think of a more imaginative way to capture your child's personality at a certain age and this would surely be treasured by the recipient. They are priced at just $24.95 but the final product is truly priceless.
Review: Yet another amazing gift idea. This book is the perfect way to capture your child's voice at a certain age. Not much could be sweeter than receiving a book from your son or daughter that has his or her own voice telling you how special you are to them! I will truly treasure the book that I received and my kids had a fun time putting it together. It was really easy to record and the book is hardcover so it will stay safe. Like the canvas painting, the voices come across very clear and there are safeguards in place so you do not accidentally record over it.
