Calling Cards originated in the early part of the 19th Century but Mom & Dad calling cards are a modern day concept. Their popularity is growing constantly.
There is a good reason for that. Mom and Dad Calling cards are so handy when you are leaving your kid at a playdate. Many parents told me they wished calling cards had been around when their children were young.
A family affair
With the father taking a bigger role in the education of their children, having a card that works for both parents is often the most practical option. I was surprised to observe a lack of masculine designs on the market.
Penny People from Toronto listened to my suggestion. She emailed me yesterday about new patterns she introduced that are gender neutral. I want to spread the word.
The best models for fathers and parents
I feel that fathers and parents now have 5 gender neutral choices at Penny People. Dads and parents can choose between the latest blue or green Lulu, Jackson and the Blue Dots patterns. From the previous collection, Modern Green and So-chic Blue still look current.
Buy it for you, buy it for a friend
Calling cards can be a birthday present for a close friend or a relative who is a parent. Moms and dads will cherish their calling cards every time that hire a new babysitter or when their kids get invited to a playdate.
So why not give them a first batch? Make sure to check with the parents about allergies and birth dates. Names, address, cell phone number, child’s allergies and birth dates typically appear on the calling cards.
