Hallmark's Cute Little Critters: Meet Hoops & Yoyo

I've been a lifelong fan (and very frequent customer) of Hallmark cards. I could literally spend hours browsing their stores, picking out cards for friends, family and even near strangers for every occasion imaginable. But I've recently fallen under the spell of some cute little animated characters created by the greeting card company.

Hoops & Yoyo are family-friendly, energetic and just plain fun. Hoops is a pink kitty with an extra-large head and humongous eyes. Yoyo is a smaller green bunny. They are sometimes joined by Piddles, a small blue creature.

They have some great qualities that make them positive role models for kids. Hoops is creative and optimistic, while Yoyo is loyal and friendly.

You don't have to spend any money to share these characters with loved ones. There are tons of different e-cards featuring Hoops & Yoyo, along with printable worksheets, calendars and activity pages. And check out all the fun downloads: audio clips, screensavers, wallpaper and more.

If you head to your local Hallmark store, you can also find Hoops & Yoyo on regular old-fashioned cards, plus there's a line of gifts and accessories featuring the characters. I like the plush toys, the fuzzy dice and the change purses.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to become a Hoops & Yoyo friend on Facebook.
