Hallmark Text Bands and Style Bands

Hallmark Text Band Starter Kits and Style bandsEarlier this year, my daughter and I had a chance to play with some Text Bands from Hallmark. Kids can write messages (up to 10 characters) and exchange them with friends using a simple shake, bump, or high five. Honestly, I was skeptical of how popular they could be since many kids these days have their own smartphones to text on all day long. To my surprise, my daughter and her friends had a blast with them!

Text Bands are made up of a basic LED texting module and a silicon-type band ($14.99 for this starter kit). Just flip the ‘on’ switch and start watching the kids giggle like crazy. Children from about 5 to 12 years old will enjoy sending little phrases to each other while hanging out or playing.

To raise the ‘cool’ factor even more, new Style Bands are now available to purchase as well. These interchangeable bands ($4.99 each) come in a variety of designs and colors, appealing to both girls and boys. Personally, I like the Minnie Mouse and Star Wars ones best. Additional styles will be coming out in the near future.

Changing bands is just a matter of popping the texting module out of one band and into another. While I did the popping out, my daughter did the popping in.

I highly suggest you check out the Text Band FAQ as it provides a ton of great answers, such as why these bands aren’t packaged as two and if there’s some kind of word filter. Text Bands and Style Bands can be found at your local Hallmark store.

Until Oct. 7th, you can even win 1 of 2 Text Bands Starter Kits that I have the pleasure of giving away. Enter below!
