There is an obsession with stickers in our house. Although I think this *may* not be isolated to our house, so when a bright yellow envelope drops through the letterbox there is a flurry of excitement as the envelope is opened. It is addressed to the littlest member of the family, who doesn't really get very much post but she now knows the envelope design and can't wait to rip it open to see what is inside.
The Sticker Club is a weekly subscription service that was created by two dads who noticed the desire to move back towards traditional, creative play. There is no denying that with everything being done online these days, children still love receiving their own mail through the postbox and the cool design makes it unmissable.
Each week there is a different selection of stickers to choose from and although the stickers come for the little one, there is always something that the tween covets.
The stickers have been made into pictures, cards and frequently found on varying pieces of furniture or doors but I love the creativity they help to develop, the imagination they help to inspire (and maybe the half an hours peace it also helps to give me whenever they arrive).
Presently priced at £1.99 per week, they may not be the cheapest stickers you will find but the designs are fabulous, the service is great and it is less than the cost of certain fast food restuarants children's meals and is much more educational, fun and certainly less calories!
