Hallmark is a place I can always find heart felt gifts. This makes it a great place to shop for Valentine’s Day! This year Hallmark has introduced some adorable new Disney items to its already great selection of meaningful gifts. Hallmark has a huge selection of itty bittys and they recently added Limited edition Disney Mickey & Minnie itty bittys for Valentine’s Day! These itty bittys would make great gifts for your valentine and would be a great addition to any Disney fan’s collection. These plush itty bittys may be small, but they’ve got the same big heart Disney fans have come to love. They are super soft and equally adorable. Best of they are easy to hold for little hands, so my daughter loves them. I especially like how soft the itty bittys are because my baby girl has only been walking for a month so falls are inevitable. My new walker can carry them around all she wants and I don’t have to worry about her falling and getting hurt.
Since we are a tad bit in love with children’s books here at the nook, we are a bit obsessed with Hallmark Interactive Storybooks. My son has Jingle the dog and the a couple of the interactive storybooks that go along with him. We love that adorable dog, so we were super excited to find out that Hallmark recently introduced a Winnie the Pooh and Tigger interactive story buddies to their collection. In case you are not familiar with Interactive Story Buddies, they are plush versions of the main character in the book that magically chime in during key parts of the story. The amazing thing about these cute buddies and these stories is that it requires no programming or effort on your part to make them work. We squeeze Winnie the Pooh’s ear to turn him on and he will say he would love for you to read him a story. I simply read the book to my kids and after I read any of the highlighted phrases in the book, Winnie will start talking! If your buddy does not respond to one of the key phrases just say it again. Once in awhile my kids get to loud or they are smothering their bear so tight he can’t hear what I say. Silly old bear!
I must admit that I feel like such a kid when we read our Pooh and the Smackerel of Cake book with our Winnie the Pooh buddy. I can’t help but grin from ear to ear with my kids each time Winnie starts talking and the story is just so sweet! I was also super excited to learn that when the Winnie and Tigger buddies are side by side, they will respond not only to key phrases in the story, but to each other as well! I am so going to get my kids Tigger too! Hallmark interactive story books and their buddies are a true treasure. They help bring characters to life right in front of my children’s eyes. The wonder and excitement that is a result of these Hallmark buddies nothing short of spectacular. I enjoy these books so much and spending time reading with a child is always a great way to pass time. Perfect for this never ending winter!
Hallmark is best known for their wide selection of greeting cards. This year’s selection of Valentine’s Day cards are as cute as ever. Since all three of my little valentine’s are unique and bring me joy in their own way each and every day, I needed three completely different cards. Hallmark greeting cards are always great quality and the selection of designs and characters made it easy to choose which card would be perfect for each of my children. Since my baby girl loves cards but would quickly try to put them in her mouth, I thought the giraffe Special Delivery Card Presenter was the perfect way to give her a valentine. The card presenter is made of a felt material and is basically a really cute pocket for the sweet Hallmark message that is inside. The valentine can easily be pulled out for reading and you could stick a small treat inside as well! My boys will be getting adorable Hallmark Disney cards that are complete with pretty illustrations and cute messages. The perfect valentines for my sweet boys.
Look Pooh bear, you are in a book!
Give a meaningful gift to your valentine with Hallmark itty bittys and interactive story buddies. Oh, and don’t forget a card!
