I just spent, thanks to Team Mom, the past hour playing around on the Bella Sara website (you can go to the site here). I’ve never heard of Bella Sara, but then again my kids are only 2 and 4, but boy did I have fun on the site!
Bella Sara is a trading card game that has a very nice online world to go along with the cards. Basically, you purchase a pack of cards and on the bottom of each card is a code. You head to the Bella Sara website and enter the code and you unlock the horse that is on each card. As you unlock your horses, you also are given horseshoes (money) that you are able to buy new items.
You are responsible for taking care of each of your horses. That means, feeding them, cleaning out their stalls, brushing them, and making them happy. After doing all that, you can head on over to the arena and play some games. That is where I spent most of my time. I really liked the cloud jumping game!!
Here is the really cool part. On November 6th, Bella Sara will be unveiling Baby Bella cards! In the Baby Bella card packs you could find, parent cards, foal cards, teacher cards, shiny horse cards, and/or regular toy cards. If you are able to collect all the members of a horse family, you are able to earn special rewards online.
So be sure to head over to BellaSara.com on November 6th. They will be unveiling Bella’s new baby and there will be a 10 day party with daily gifts for members of the site. The Baby Bella cards will retail for $2.99 each (stocking stuffer alert!!!) and can be purchased at Target, Kmart, Borders, Blockbuster, Barnes & Noble, Justice for Girls, Toys “R” Us, and Wal-Mart.
It’s nice to see a toy out there that has such a positive message for young girls. That was one of my favorite things about these cards (besides having the horse I always wanted and not having to smell poo!)…each card had a nice positive message.
Alrighty, now I am going to go play with my horses some more!
