Review of Hallmark’s “Dad Has Character” Gift Pack
Hallmark has a special place in my heart. I feel like I have been living the Hallmark lifestyle my whole life. I remember visiting Hallmark as a child, with my mom. While she browsed in the card section, I would venture around gazing at the gorgeous Hallmark figurines, holiday ornaments, stuffed animals, and the breakables behind the glass case. To this day, I continue to shop at Hallmark and I have dragged my own daughter to quite a few Hallmark stores over the years. I hope she continues the tradition when she has her own kids one day.
In my opinion, Hallmark cards are considered the “gold standard” of greeting cards. Their cards are always innovative and made of high quality paper. One of my favorite line of cards from Hallmark is Maxine. She cracks me up every time. Here’s an example:

Since I hold Hallmark cards in such high regard, I was honored to receive three of their Father’s Day cards. These are quality, well designed greeting cards.

Make dad the star with Hallmark’s new Father’s Day cards that are full of new tricks and stunts including alternative action, fiber optic lights, pop-ups and even lip-sync sound. New superhero greetings also let you give dad a card that’s as exciting and action-packed as he is.

When I was a kid, Hallmark didn’t have their adorable line of interactive story buddies and books *pout*. I feel much better now because for my review, I received Watson the Interactive Story Buddy. This clever little talking raccoon will steal your heart as he comes to life when you read key words aloud from his books. See if you can solve the case with Watson in Watson and the Case of the Sneaky Stealer.

Bring story time to life with our family of Interactive Story Buddies. Meet Watson, a clever little raccoon who will steal your heart. Kids will love hearing him respond as you read key words aloud from his included book. Add his other books to your library to unlock even more things for Watson to say.

Isn’t Watson absolutely adorable?! I cannot wait to send this set to my nephew. One of the great things about the Story Buddies is that when you purchase the Buddy, you get one book free with your purchase. I love this! In addition, Hallmark continues to grow it’s collection of Buddy books so you can add on to your child’s collection. After all, who wants to read the same story over and over when you have someone like Watson helping you?!

Parents,  here’s a big plus: Watson has an on/off switch just in case you need a break from story time or you want to conserve battery life {3 replaceable batteries are included}. I am so glad that Hallmark was smart enough to give this book a hard cover because we all know how tough kids can be on books! I also love that Hallmark has added a free option to add to your fun with Watson. Free you say? Yes! You can download a free Watson app on your iPhone/iPad found in the Applications section. Each Story Buddy has their own app which adds hours of fun, for free!

Finally, I received a recordable storybook featuring Curious George in the lovable book Curious You On Your Way. I absolutely love Curious George but if that’s not your child’s favorite, you have plenty to choose from. Hallmark has over 20 characters in their recordable storybook selection.

I am so impressed by how easy it was to record my own voice into the book. It was a matter of pressing a button and reading! The sound is fabulous and what an amazing treasure your child will have—-a book that uses your voice to read to them. Although my nephew lives in a different state, I take comfort in knowing that he will hear my voice every time he opens his Curious You On Your Way.
