Hallmark Cutie

Backstage at the Teen Choice Awards last weekend, young stars had the chance to reach out to young fans who may be watching the show from a hospital room. Hallmark paired up with Tamagotchi Toys to send gift bags to sick kids through the City of Hope. Kudos to stars like Miley Cyrus, Megan Fox, and Omarion who penned heartfelt sentiments to these young fans on Hallmark cards.

BeansTalk has learned that Hallmark’s super popular sound effect cards were gifted to Teen Choice Award presenters and performers. Check out the adorable Miley Cyrus! She shared that her mom recently received the Hannah Montana sound effect card for her birthday. Great choice.

This season, Hallmark Gold Crown stores will offer an expanded collection of 224 Cards With Sound featuring more than 100 original music artists, as well as dialogue and theme songs from popular movies and TV shows. The collection also includes musical gift bags and gift-card boxes, as well as gift bags designed with pockets to hold a sound-producing card.

Hallmark Cards With Sound feature CD-quality recordings of original music and sound clips. Each clip plays up to 30 seconds when the card is opened, and stops when the card is closed. The cards include classics songs such as "Unchained Melody" by The Righteous Brothers and "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong, as well as trendy tunes such as "All Star" by Smash Mouth and "Wild Thing" by The Troggs. They retail for $4.99
