CLEVELAND, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Birthdays are traditionally the happiest day of the year for little boys and girls; they are showered by loved ones with gifts, and thank those doting on them with smiles and laughs. Watching the amazement on the faces of a favorite birthday child easily creates another birthday wish—that the child's heartwarming happiness could last longer than one day. While birthday cards are quickly read by children, then placed aside in anticipation of a new toy or game, they may now become more center of attention. American Greetings Corporation (NYSE: AM) introduces Silly Face Fun™, a new line of humorous and playful cards that allow children to get creative and design silly faces on a variety of characters. This collection also features a FREE Silly Face Fun app, available for iPhone, iPad and the iPod Touch.
It's a game! It's a card! It's Silly Face Fun, a paper card and game in one! This card line appeals to kids' imaginations and their parents' childhood game nostalgia. The cards feature a magnetic wand that moves around magnet shavings. The shavings help the child make multiple silly faces on cute illustrated characters- silly hair, hats, glasses, the options are as endless as their creativity. It's a card they'll keep to play again and again!
For those looking for a fun new app, Silly Face Fun brings a hi-tech twist to the magic-magnet-wand games. Your finger is now the magic wand, used to create endless silly faces and crazy hairdos! Choose from a cast of six silly characters or add your own pic. Silly Face Fun provides hours of giggles, laughter and of course, silliness!

"Consumers purchasing a children's birthday card find added value when it connects with both the child and the adult," said Carol Miller, vice president, corporate innovation at American Greetings. "As the child/children enjoy using a fun wand to easily create silly faces on aliens, kittens, puppies or monkeys, adults can relate and remember how enjoyable magnetic drawing used to be for them as well."
