But Hatchcards have thought of a solution to that and have made the cards fun.
WHAT IS A HATCH CARD?
A hatch card is a greetings card that comes to life using augmented reality. You can purchase one through our network of stockists or online and send to your recipient in the same way you would a “normal” greetings card.
Once they have received your card they scan it with their phone and it comes to life! Not only that but after they have watched the animation they are given access to a range of free games and activities to keep them entertained for hours!
I decided to let Harry my 3 year old test them out. I told him that this was a birthday card that we could send to one of his friends, as expected he was not hugely excited by it
But then we downloaded the free app which took a few seconds and told him it did something magic…
And just like that the card came to life and the monkey started blowing raspberries. Harry thought it was hilarious!
And then he started to play the games and we couldn’t get it off him for ages 🙂
I think they are such a fantastic idea. And at just £2.99 a card they are not overly priced either. I probably wouldn’t buy them for every school friend in the children’s classes but close family and friends children, I definitely will.
And the instructions to download the app are clearly stated on the back of the cards so there is no need for you to explain.
Do you have a child’s birthday coming up soon? Well I have a giveaway for two lucky winners to win 3 cards each.
Or if you want another chance of winning, Hatchcards have their own global competition which you can find here
