The Yakety Yaks are returning this summer as American Greeting Cards introduces a new collection of the greetings. If you check them out, you notice they have even more personality to add to the social media circuit, not just the card aisle alone.

The Yakety Yaks are returning this summer as American Greeting Cards introduces a new collection of the greetings. If you check them out, you notice they have even more personality to add to the social media circuit, not just the card aisle alone. The Yakety Yaks can now be found as ecards and are literally taking over the company’s social media pages.

Featuring innovative music and motion technology that allows each googley-eyed Yak to share a hilarious original song, the latest cards have updated the popular formula with all-new characters. In addition to favorites like Hamburger and Cupcake, this year’s class of Yaks includes everything from Beans and Cookie Jar to Phone, and the sure-to-be adored, Underpants. You got to see the Underpants.

In addition to the new paper and ecards, the Yakety Yaks are also coming to life online in some fun and unique ways. This summer the Yaks can be found acting out together in the card aisle on YouTube and randomly taking over the American Greetings Facebook and Twitter pages as they interact with fans and pass out their own brand of wit and wisdom.

“Consumers absolutely loved the Yakety Yaks, and we were pretty fond of them ourselves, so we decided everyone could use even more of their unique fun,” Carol Miller, executive director of new product concepts at American Greetings told me. “It was an absolute blast to bring these characters to life and we’re very excited for people to get to enjoy them in a whole new way. The paper cards and ecards are hilarious, the ‘behind-the-scenes’ videos really have to be seen to be believed, and everyone will get a kick out of their new love of social media.”
