In a world that’s transitioning from wishing people with cards, to wishing people by sending them videos and selfies, Lalaframe provides the perfect combination of both experiences. This $25 card comes with an LCD display, a speaker, 512mb of storage, and a battery that lasts roughly an hour with constant use. In other words, it’s two things. It’s the world’s coolest gift card… But it’s also the world’s most affordable tablet!
The Lalaframe looks like any card from the outside, albeit a little thicker thanks to the hidden electronics… but open it and the LCD screen inside comes to life, playing a personalized message that’s been uploaded to its memory card. The message could be either a video shot on your phone, or a slideshow of snippets that you made on a computer. The Lalaframe can read all standard video formats (AVI, MP4, 3GP, and WMV), and the 7″ LCD screen is a pretty unique way of communicating a personalized message, be it either in voice, song, or text. The card comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts up to an hour (based on how heavy your video file is) that charges via a MicroUSB port.
Unlike most novelty cards, the Lalaframe can actually be reused again. Adding a video to it is as simple as connecting it to a laptop or desktop and dragging and dropping files. Old files can be deleted and replaced with newer videos whenever you want to re-gift the card… or be like me and add downloaded episodes of your favorite TV show to have your own video playback machine (I’m kidding, don’t pirate stuff, kids). All in all, the Lalaframe is a unique way of delivering a touching video message that won’t get buried in your phone’s camera roll or get deleted after 24 hours.
The frame comes in three varieties. One with a heart theme, one with a birthday theme, and a blank template for any occasion of your choice. A pretty impactful way to get your message across, the Lalaframe makes for some incredibly lasting birthday messages, anniversaries, wedding/engagement announcements, seasons’ greetings, or just telling someone you love them. At its remarkably low early-bird price of $25 (find me any video playback device that’s this affordable, I dare you), the Lalaframe is one-of-a-kind not just because of the ability to play back video greetings, but also because it’s so much better than shelling out a fiver for a crummy Hallmark card with a stock photo and a cheesy slogan on it, am I right?!

Lalaframe – A Greeting Card for the 21st Century
A modern, fun and personal greeting card that literally speaks for itself. “We were fed up with all the impersonal mass-created greeting cards and wanted to make a card that is customizable and reflective of us and our relationships,” Fattahi told Yanko Design.
Below: How It Works
1. Take a video.
Have full control over what goes into your greeting card. Whether you want to shoot a video with your iPhone, sing a song, or compile a series of photos from past memories, you have the choice to truly make it your own. Be as weird and corky as your heart desires.
2. Upload it on the card.
Simply use the USB cable that comes with the card to upload your file. Connect the card to your computer and drop the file in the folder. Voila!
Surprising someone special and making a loved one smile is one of the greatest joys of life. and let’s be honest, we all love a good surprise.
