A tisket, a tasket, what should I put in my child’s Easter basket? Today’s Woman has the answer with some great ideas from our friends at Hallmark Canada, which are sure to be a hit.
Request a Song Mimi
Have you met Mimi? Request a Song Mimi is a sweet little mouse with a whole lot of heart. Simply tell Mimi which of her seven original songs (sung by Hallmark’s own Carolina Fernandez) that you’d like to hear, or just say “Mimi’s choice” to let her pick one for you and she will sing to your child.
Mimi uses iReply technology and comes with a songbook that includes lyrics to all of her songs, so that your child can sing along.
My two year old daughter adores Mimi and has been toting her around our house since she received her. She can turn Mimi on and off all by herself, but needs assistance from mommy or daddy when it comes to requesting Mimi to sing a song.
We noticed that sometimes it is hard for Mimi to pick up our voice, when there are other sounds around, so we need to insure we are speaking to Mimi in a quiet space.
Sometimes we need to repeat ourselves, but that does not deter our daughter any from the enjoyment Mimi brings. As my daughters vocabulary grows, I anticipate that Mimi will be enjoyed even more.
Hallmark Sing with Mimi Microphone
Take your child’s enjoyment of Mimi further with Hallmark’s “Sing With Mimi Microphone.” The microphone amplifies your child’s voice as she sings along to one of Mimi’s three rockin’ songs – “Let’s All Sing,” “I Heart My Family” and “I like Singing and You.” The microphone also includes sound effects such as clapping, cheering and encouraging words from Mimi. Requires 1 AAA battery (included). Sing with Mimi Microphone retails for $$19.95.
Hallmark Mimi Song Downloads

Peanuts Easter Beagle Snoopy Stuffed Animal
Hallmark gifts feature Peanuts characters that make perfect gifts for all of your friends and loved ones. The snow has melted, flowers are blooming, and the Easter Beagle is on his way, well at least, according to the ever-trusting Linus Van Pelt.
Brighten up an Easter basket with Easter Beagle Snoopy Plush from Hallmark. Snoopy is looking adorable in his bright blue Easter bunny disguise. Fans both young and old cannot help fall in love with Easter Beagle Snoopy. (MSRP: $19.95)
I plan to include Snoopy in my daughter’s Easter basket with a copy of “It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown (remastered deluxe edition)”from Warner Home Video.
In addition to these wonderful gift ideas, Hallmark Gold Crown® stores also offer new designs in Easter gift wrap, gift bags, cards and stickers; therefore allowing you to purchase all your Easter gift essentials at one place.
Hallmark also has a number of great items that are perfect for Mother’s Day. Stay tuned – I’ll be sharing more about them with you in the upcoming month.
