File the question ‘Why do kids love stickers so much?’ right alongside ‘Why do they love Bandaids?’ and ‘Why do they love that really, really messy paste with glitter in it?’
Who knows the answer, just let them get sticky in style. And it’s all about retro style with sticker packs from Djeco. The Traffic Stickers feature funky looking people and pets travelling in all sorts of ways – I like the ‘superhero’ on the scooter and the futuristic cars. The sweet Small Wings set features stylised fairies in patchwork pantaloons and colourful dandelions. For something that is Japanese ‘zakka’ cute, the wide-eyed Beasts are spot-on and mini-fashionistas will swoon for the Little Fashion House stickers, complete with dressmakers dummies, buttons and bobbins.
If the 160 stickers in each of these sets are simply not enough for your sticker mad kids, go crazy with 1000 Stickers for Little Ones. Featuring everything from alphabets and numbers to dancing rabbits, elephants driving cars and fairy toadstools, these stickers will keep kids going for hours.
At my house we have got into the habit of making birthday cards and gift tags for friends and part of the fun is choosing some stickers to decorate with. Grab packs of plain white gift tags at the newsagent and some of these stylish stickers and you’ll never be without cards created with love again.
Sticker packs are $4.95. The ‘1000 Stickers’ collection is $27.95. All are available from Where Did You Get That?
