Being that this was my first BlogHer, I had NO idea what to expect. Vanessa tried warning me. She was amazing at doing her best to prepare me, but honestly until you’re THERE in the thick of it, you have no clue what’s about to happen to you.
I realized at the end of BlogHer, I prefer these small, intimate gatherings over the insanity of big parties. I’m all about getting personal, talking to people…and brands. I don’t want to have to shout over music and other people talking at the top of their lungs. I don’t want to have to wonder if someone is even going to remember me being in the crowd.
So, let’s talk Hallmark!!
Vanessa, Hanan and I were given refreshments to start our time off. We were given a personal tour, yes, just the three of us, with the Hallmark rep! She took us to each station so we could get hands on with their upcoming products…get excited for the holidays people!!
I was introduced to the new Text Bands (review and giveaway will be coming down the road) Those were sooo cool. I know Doodle will love trying these out with his friends. lol I’ll have to make sure he doesn’t get in trouble at school using them. Neither of my boys have cell phones, so texting with these will have a lot of appeal, especially the Star Wars themed ones!
Ok, personally, I’m sad that my kids are growing up and out of the age bracket for some of the CUTEST products Hallmark has out now. How adorable are these Interactive Story Buddy products?!
And this set getting ready for the Holidays
Hanan was hysterical trying out the Microphone that turns your voice to sound like an elf. It was awesome!
Next we headed into the Master bedroom of the suite and got to check out the Recordable Books. These are perfect for grandparents to read to their grandchildren, parents who travel to read to their kids, or just to have on the bookshelf for the children to enjoy.
And then, one of my favorite items that I came across. So sweet! It’s the Until We Hug Again bear. I love it!!
Thank you Hallmark for a great afternoon!
