Bella Sara: Trading Cards for Girls ~ Review and Giveaway

Alright, boys have Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokeman, and Chaotic Trading Cards or even the traditional baseball and Hockey Cards but aren't we forgetting the girls? Granted, I'm not saying that there are not girls out there who also enjoy these cards illustrated with imaginary monsters or revered sports figures, my girls are intrigued by them {I am the last person to promote gender stereotypes}...but we all realize that most girls realistically, if given the choice, would prefer cards picturing beautiful, mystical, and magical horses over these other garish options!

Bella Sara was initially launched in Denmark by Gitte Odder Braendgaard and was meant to empower children with positive messages and the magic of the north! Bella Sara is a magical world of horses where children are transported to the realm of North of North through imagination and adventure! Bella Sara products now include games, puzzles, figurines,Video games, and recently new DVD adventures as well as the very popular set of 55 collectable trading cards.

What makes these cards even more popular with today's young girls? Each pack of cards contains a secret code which can be used to unlock various equine {horse} characters, new adventures, and horseshoe points online! Yes, your children are invited to Bella's magical masquerade Ball at! BellaSara is a safe and private online site where parents can control their child's appropriate level of interaction in the Bella Sara world.

My girls were particularly enchanted by the BellaSara website. Playing games, caring for their horses and collecting the Bella Sara World currency, horseshoes, mesmerized my 5 year old daughter who adores animals. My 7 year old is a horse lover and enjoyed purchasing items for her horse with the horseshoes she had collected--yes, shopping must be in a girl's DNA!

Bella's Ball online is just one addition to Bella Sara Adventures award-winning game-play component created by Hidden City Games. My girls enjoy the magical journey, discovering new lands, solving mysteries and restoring the world's beauty one Bella Sara adventure at a time!

Bella Sara has also introduced the Miniature Series 2 set featuring 20 new velvety horse figurines also containing secret codes which can be used online. View the collection series checklist to help your child collect all these minis and find Bella Sara products at Target, Wal-Mart, and Toys R Us as well as other independent retailers.

Your children can also experience the magic and enchantment of these fantastical horses! One lucky Northern Mama reader will be given two packages of Bella Sara Trading cards and a velvety miniature horse figurine!
