GIVEAWAY: WIN a Hallmark Interactive Story Book & Cards for Holiday Gift Giving - ENDS 11/9 (CLOSED)

Hallmark Interactive Story Buddies and Greeting Cards are great tech gifts for the holidays...

While I was attending the BlogHer conference back in August, I was invited to a party in a private suite overlooking the New York City skyline that was hosted by Hallmark. Hallmark has sponsored numerous giveaways on this blog in the past I could not wait to get to the party to see what new products Hallmark was planning to launch for the 2012 holiday season.

It was Christmas in August in the Hallmark Suite at BlogHer12
I wrote a blog post about all the great products that I saw in the Hallmark Suite during BlogHer12.  There were so much many new products that there was no way that I could get to them all.  So Hallmark was gracious enough to send me a few of their new interactive holiday products so that I could try them out for myself - and sponsor a giveaway for my readers.

I was sent a Hallmark Interactive Story Buddy Book set which includes the story "Belle's Big Move" by Tom Shay-Zaplen.

Hallmark Interactive Story Buddies™ help parents experience story time with their kids in a multiple of ways including reading the book, listening to the included audio CD and also playing online and mobile games for iPad, iPhone and iPod with which each Belle Story Buddy plush toy interacts. Bell the dog is Hallmark’s new character for Holiday 2012. And for boys there is Jingle, the Husky Pup.

Hallmark Interactive Story Buddies retail for $34.95.  The first story book and interactive CD are included in the price of the Story Buddy. Coordinating Belle's Big Move iPhone, iPod, and iPad applications are available for FREE on iTunes.

Hallmark is of course known for their greeting cards and for 2012, Hallmark has a collection of Recordable Wish List Cards and Christmas Countdown cards.

With the help of Mickey Mouse or one of Santa’s friendly elves, Hallmark Christmas Countdown Cards double as a holiday greeting and a functioning countdown clock. Display the card and watch the days and hours tick away, bringing you closer to the excitement of Christmas Day. I was sent a Mickey Mouse Countdown Card which I plan to keep on my desk at work.

Hallmark Recordable Wish List Cards enable kids (or kids at heart) to record their wish lists directly in to card to let Santa (ho,ho,ho) know what they’d like to receive for Christmas. Fun for all ages, the Recordable Wish List card is especially perfect for little ones who aren’t yet able to write a wish list for Santa.

Hallmark Christmas Countdown Cards retail for $6.99 each and Hallmark Recordable Wish List Cards retail for $5.99 and are available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores.
