Updated on October 28, 2011

Do you LOVE to send holiday cards but hate the cost of postage? Are you a computer user, but not a real "techie"? JibJab videos and eCards are perfect for you!! These fun and entertaining eCards take only a few minutes to put together and provide hours of fun and laughter for you and your recipient! Read more about how they work, then go to their website and make one for yourself!

Here is a picture taken of the video while it was playing on my laptop!  This is me...I'm the Mummy of the family after all!!

Super Simple And Super Fun

It is a super fun and funny way to connect and let someone know that you are thinking about them during the holidays! Simply go to and you will find a photo video and eCard wizard that will walk you through the steps to creating eCards and music video cards to send to loved ones!

It allows you to insert photos of friends and family from your computer or other locations like Facebook to personalize the video characters who perform choreography to music! It is hilarious! I made one for my son overseas that included his wife, brother, Gramma, Grampa and, me, of course! We are the Monsters in a Halloween video! I used pictures from my camera that I had downloaded to my computer and the video was on!!

The first thing you do is select a photo, upload and position the face of the person into the "frame" area. Next you fine-tune the frame area to fit the shape of the face including the chin and ears. Then you select the mouth area for animation, yes, animated mouth!! Just wait until you see it! Finally you save the face or head as the person (for future use) and you are ready to select the character they will play. You drag the face into the character and move on to the next person. Don't be nervous - it is VERY simple!! There is also an instructional video link at the bottom of the page for those who may be squeamish about trying these kinds of things! Be precise about the eye level as that helps to make the picture placement fit correctly into the video. You can drag and redo the placement of characters until you get the look you prefer.

Once you get all your characters set, you move on to the finale! You can post it on Facebook, share it with a friend, e-mail it to others, and the list goes on and on. Yes, you can download it and keep it forever, for a small fee! It is worth it! Most of the fees are relatively small, so check into it!

More Than Halloween!

There are many more holiday videos available and some that aren't holiday related at all! There are eCards available for just about anything you can imagine! It is all within the realm of your imagination! Take a look at them and have fun putting one together! It took about 15 minutes total to get it all completed and that included taking a couple of pictures and getting them downloaded to the computer! It is fun and easy for the whole family! Be sure to post a comment and share what you make!

      Oh, wow! I used to love Jib Jab and had totally forgotten about it! Thanks for the hub. They used to have really hilarious bits during elections so I think I'll check them out again.
