Cleveland, OH, April 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Surprises, music, animals and humor sound like a recipe for a stellar birthday party – and applying that formula to a brand-new type of birthday card adds up to a comical one-stop-shop for giving friends and family a memorable birthday experience. Available now, American Greetings latest greeting card invention, the Getting Wiggy™ collection, is full of sidesplitting personality.

You’ll wig out over these cards! Getting Wiggy is a new card line that really brings the laughs. Simply slide the tab up and around the character to reveal their wacky hairdo and silly song.
