So a company sent me these trading cards to review on here. They're called Bella Sara and this is what the website says: Welcome to the World of Bella Sara, a magical place full of beauty and joy where you may activate your Bella Sara trading cards and collect horses in an online stable. A safe world of fun and adventure lies just beyond the stable gate, with games, puzzles, and activities for you to enjoy with your favorite horses.
I opened up the packs of cards with my excited, over-eager-because-toys-came-in-the-mail kids jumping up and down in front of me. I figured the cards would just have cutesy horses on them.
Um...yeah. The pictures are all magical-looking, and each card has this fanTAStic new-age-ish saying on it. Stuff like, "Look at the sky. See the art that NATURE creates" (emphasis mine, of course.) "I give you courage. Now release your fears." (Actually, I don't think a black horse named Thunder can do that, but whatever.) Or, "Make your own choices, and let others make theirs." (Um, right. Although...I think I might save this to hand out to nosy parents at the park!) And I just LOVED these: "You have the freedom to make your own dreams come true", and "You have the power to control the way you react."
Wow. Needless to say my kids will NOT be keeping these, they're going in the garbage bin as soon as I'm done writing this. (The cards, not the kids!) There was some disappointment, but I told the kids that these cards didn't say the best things, that God wants us dwelling on things that are lovely and pure and true.
So there's my review. I may not get any more review offers, but hey, at least I'm honest. :)
