Do you have kids that are tech savvy? Asking you if they can have a cell phone? iPad? iPhone? Well, it’s time for you to check out Hallmark’s new Text Bands — a cool, brand-new way for kids to let friends know what’s on their mind.
Hallmarks sent me two Text bands to review. Even though my kids are pretty good with my android, iPod & their LeapPad… this product is a little too old for them, so my faithful friend’s daughter who is in Jr. High was more than happy to be my test subject.
So what is a Text Band? It’s a wristband/texting device that allows kids to send text messages wristband to wristband. How does it work? Kids can enter up to 10 characters into the screen on the band. Once their message is set, they can bump fists or shake hands to pass the message to someone else that is wearing a Text Band. The bands will light up and the messages will transfer from band to band.
It’s easy to text with your friends.
To Text: Create your own message using up to 10 characters. You can change your message with your mood.
To Connect: You can connect your band with your friends by bumping fists, giving high-five or shake hands. The messages will trade from band to band.
