With Christmas just around the corner we are trying to find gifts that don’t break your pockets but are also fun as well. When given the chance to review Shoulder Buddies my brother was ecstatic. It’s not everyday that he gets a new toy, and not every day he gets one that he can walk around with as well. After all Shoulder Buddies do exactly what they say. They are made for your shoulders and become your everyday buddy. If you have kids into imaginary play or who loves being creative then Shoulder Buddies would become their very best friend. Now instead of having a chip on your shoulder (mommy’s words) how about a buddy on your shoulder?
Shoulder Buddies are adorable, wearable characters that come with “Smart Cards” that share valuable life lessons. Kids love to collect and wear their Shoulder Buddies, while learning about the great messages that come with them!
$5.99 – Recommended age: 4y+
When we first saw our Shoulder Buddy when he arrived the first thing mommy said was that he looked like a troll. Mommy and daddy knew exactly who trolls were but my siblings had no idea. My big sister said he also looked like a Gremlin. I had no idea who those were either. Guess I need to grow up a little. Our Shoulder Buddies name was Pal and he comes with his own Smart Card.
Shoulder Buddies are a little bit cuter than Trolls and Gremlins and they were so simple to use. They all come with a magic coin. This coin is a magnet that you place inside your clothes and that attaches your Shoulder Buddy to your shoulder. The magnet is pretty strong and my brother Mikael had no problem with his Pal staying on his shoulder.
Now Pal loves animals and comes with an acronym PAMPER.
P – Play with your pet.
A – Always keep them clean.
M – Make a loving home.
P – Provide fresh food and water.
E – Enjoy the love they give.
R – Remember to be kind to all animals.
Being pet owners we loved that we received Pal. Now Pal can remind Mikael about our pets. It’s Mikael’s job to feed our dogs so Pal can be his reminder to PAMPER our pets with health, happiness and love!
Shoulder Buddies also make great collectibles. With so many to choose from you may have trouble trying to find the one that you want to have. For the Hello Kitty fans there are Hello Kitty Shoulder Buddies as well.
Shoulder Buddies not only make great gifts but they are also a great way to earn money for your school as well. Shoulder Buddies currently have a School Fund Raising Program available. You can get more information about the program here.
Now that we’ve told you about Shoulder Buddies here are the other great ways you can connect with them.
