CLEVELAND, July 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Birthdays are a time for celebration and a great excuse to party and add some extra fun. Consumers looking for a way to create more excitement for an individual's special day can now look to the greeting card aisle for messages of birthday wishes combined with special effects guaranteed to turn up the festivities. American Greetings Corporation (NYSE: AM) is introducing its newest innovative line of greeting cards, Turbo Button™, a surprising collection that features lovable characters who dance to music.
Turbo Button is a funny new line of music and motion cards showcasing dancing characters that the receiver controls.

Dancing characters include a kitty, monkey, wrestler and hamster.
"We are excited to bring consumers a new, and amusing, way to deliver birthday wishes," said Carol Miller, vice president, corporate innovation at American Greetings. "Turbo Button takes any birthday celebration to the next level as soon as you open the card, hear the music and control how fast, or slow, these funny characters dance."
