MemoryBox Calendars: Discount for FC Members!

Debuting in October 2008, MemoryBox Calendars are an affordable, creative and personal way to help people count down to Christmas in a very meaningful way, ensuring the most important aspects of the season aren't forgotten.

MemoryBox Calendars are personalized 10" X 14" holiday countdown calendars wherein you can download your own family photos so that when you open up each window leading to the holidays, it is your own family memory. They are personal, affordable, and completely unique.

MemoryBox Calendars provide a way for families to enjoy the holiday season and escape the holiday madness. It's the simple things during the holidays that really matter - watching The Grinch in your pajamas, making hot chocolate for your family, decorating the tree - and MemoryBox Calendars help families celebrate and remember the small moments that really matter.

The MemoryBox Calendar allows you to create a custom 24-day calendar – similar to a traditional advent calendar – where every box houses a special memory, activity or tradition. In less than 60 minutes– and for $19.99 – one can fully personalize this unique piece by adding your own pictures, messages and thoughts.

A sturdy stand is included with each calendar.

In 2009, MemoryBox will be adding seven-, eight-, and 14-day versions. Those will allow you to count down any special event year-found--the birth of a child, the last day of school, an upcoming vacation or wedding, or the homecoming of a loved one. Calendars are produced in the USA and are generally shipped within 2 or 3 business days after ordering. Shipping options include overnight, 2 to 3-day, and ground.



A 15% discount is offered to FamilyCorner members! Just use code FC15 at checkout. This offer expires December 3, 2008.

I received two different MemoryBox Calendars to review. I was impressed by the originality of the item AND by how well it was made and how good it looks

Ordinary "Advent Calendars" are made of rather flimsy cardboard. The MemoryBox Calendars are made of a sturdier cover stock and wrapped around a thick core--so that all the handling by small children won't have them shredded and destroyed by the first week! The little doors were easy to open without tearing the calendar (I let my first-grader test that out.)

Because the image on the front of the calendar is also used as the background for the text behind each little door (with more muted colors) I would recommend that you choose a dark, thick font for your text there. One of the calendars I checked out had a thin, light font and that made the words hard to read.

These calendars are a cute way for families to look forward to the holidays or any special event. Genius idea! And the website even offers some ideas of activities for families to enjoy while they anticipate the special day to come.

The picture below shows several examples of MemoryBox Calendars. I sampled the one on the far left (with the penguin on the bottom) as well as the center one.
