Go Ahead: Wish for the Pony!
Well, long story short… He got socks. This low-risk-low-reward style of wishing is no way to get what you really want for the holidays, and does little to inspire the joy of giving in others.
That’s why Elfster is urging you to dream big this holiday season, and wish even bigger. For instance, say you want a pony… Go ahead and wish for the pony! We aren’t ones to neigh-say and tell you the idea isn’t practical. All you need is a little help from an Elf to make your wish official. So, if you’ll settle for nothing less than a pony in your holiday goodie bag, here are the 5 whimsical ways that Elfster can help you add that pretty lil’ Pinto to your virtual Wishlist:
Use the Elfster Browser Button
Install the Wishlist Browser Button and add anything to your Wishlist from any site on the web. First, find the pony of your dreams on any pony dealer website. Click the browser button to add him to your Wishlist. Confirm by clicking the pink Elfster text box that appears on the page. Congratulations! You’ve just wished for a pony.
What if you don’t have a particular pony in mind just yet? Once you’ve signed-in, use the search box in the upper right hand corner of the Elfster homepage to peruse potential ponies. Simply type in the word “pony” and hit enter. The page will then be populated with all of the ponies and pony products you could possibly imagine. (The search will display all ponies that have ever been uploaded by the Elfster community.) Once you find one that catches your eye, see how popular that particular pony is by looking at the product description, which tells you how many Elfster “Likes” the little guy has earned.
Add the Link to Your Wishlist Page
You can also add anything to your Wishlist by going to the “Wish” page of your Elfster profile. From here, type in the name of the desired item (in this case “A Pony”) and click the "Add to Wishlist" button. Your wish can also take the form of a URL, from which Elfster will post the image of the item and its description directly to your Wishlist.
Scan the Barcode
Giddy up! With our newly released iPhone and Android apps, you don’t need to be anywhere near a computer to add that pony to your Wishlist. Simply use the app’s bar code scanning feature and your wish will be ready to ride!
Both of our Elfster Mobile apps come complete with a "Photo Wish" feature. Use your phone to take a picture of anything you’ve got your eye on, and add it right to your Wishlist, with or without a barcode.
Win a Pony! That’s Right, Win a Pony.
See? Wishing for ponies can be fun! If you’re ready to ride into the sunset on your own faithful steed, wish no more. Elfster is giving away one adorable animal companion just in time for the holidays. We’ll choose one lucky winner at random to receive their very own 3-foot-tall pink plush pony from Amazon. So what are you waiting for, Christmas? Go and get that pony, pronto!
