I have to admit; I don’t know much about Valentines Day… Apart from the fact that it falls on February 14th and women like me, love to receive flowers and chocolates or if I’m really lucky, a meal and night out on the town.

I decided to conduct some research into this popular holiday and discovered that Valentines Day is named after Saint Valentinus, who according to popular legend; was imprisoned for performing the weddings of soldiers who were forbidden to marry by order of Emperor Claudius II.  The other legend (which I prefer) suggests that an imprisoned Valentinus actually sent the first ‘Valentine’ greeting after he fell in love with a girl while he was in confinement (Apparently the daughter of the prison guard).

Why has no one made this into a movie?

Valentines Day is a ‘top event’ on the retail calendar, with the rise in spending increasing each year. The average US consumer will spend $116.21 on Valentines gifts, meals and entertainment and 32% of consumers plan to do their Valentine’s Day shopping online. Last year, iPhone and iPad accounted for 10.4% of mobile retail traffic, which is a drastic increase on last year.

Why not try something different this Valentine’s Day? For the game loving men and women you want to surprise on the 14th, how about giving them the gift of ‘gaming on the go’ with our range of AppGear products? Or treating the little ones in your life to a brand new ArtSee Studio so they don’t feel left out?

What’s the best Valentine’s gift you have received?

Valentines heart for WowWee Blog Post


I recently took an underwater adventure, where I swam above a coral reef, watched colorful fish swim by and held out my hand to touch the glittering scales, I listened to dolphins communicate with each other and watched as they jumped out of the water and danced on the waves. It was the most magical adventure, and no, I didn’t have to go to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia to experience this … I did it all from the comfort of my desk at work.

I am writing this blog post as a woman who is way older than the desired age for ArtSee Studio™; a woman who spent a sufficient amount of time yesterday completely enthralled with the amazing drawing kit.
