There's a brand new kid on the block in the children's market. The Sticker Club launched this month and we're really impressed.
Subscription products are hot news, you can now have food; make-up; clothing and all sorts of things delivered regularly to your door after a one-off order, and we all know how lovely it is to receive a treat in the post. They are a great way to try out new designers and with so many brands breaking into the subscription market, it seems only fair that your kids can get in on the action.
The Sticker Club is the brainchild of two fathers with a background in the tech market. With this new product they're going back to basics and allowing children screen-free time and the chance to stretch their imagination and tap into their creativity (although I'm guessing many of the stickers will end up adorning tablets and gaming devices!).
For just £1.99 a week, your child receives a personally addressed pack through the post containing no less than 9 sheets of high quality stickers, with a minimum of 40 stickers. They use up-and-coming and established independent designers so you can be sure of some cool images. They also promise you'll never receive the same design twice.
Every child loves stickers, and once you get past that age where they can't see where's appropriate to use them and where's not (I remember having to peel stickers off our dog's paw pads once when my daughter was younger), stickers are great fun!
Now Ruby's at the age where she can creatively use them to make artwork, decorate her scooter and her school books, I've fallen back in love with them again.
Priced at considerably lower than the weekly magazines I'm always badgered into buying, I think this is a great value for money product. Wouldn't it make a great gift too? Long after the tinsel's packed away, your gift will keep giving, delivering a weekly shot of happiness direct through the letterbox. They also mail worldwide for the same price, so if you have friends and relatives overseas, then this is perfect.
Check them out on Facebook and Twitter where they currently have a retweet competition running to win a 3 month subscription, or on their website where you can find out more.
Disclosure: I received a press sample pack.
