Hallmark North Pole Communicator
Over the weekend, we picked up this "North Pole Communicator" for the girls.
Add another 'activity' to the list of daily Christmas-related things during the month of December. And...I'm not unhappy about that.
The story with this thing is: you set the internal clock to the date/time. Then...each day the girls can try to tune into the right frequency and 'communicate' with the elves each day. There's a cartridge in the bottom that contains little sound snippets. The trick is that it only plays ONCE each day (when you tune in that day) and doesn't go back or forward. Think of it as kind of an advent calendar of sorts.
The 'stay tuned' message that gets played right now (until December 1st) is cute (but loud) so I'm hopeful that the full month of messages will be interesting and worth waiting for...
