Zappie Wall Stickers & App review

When Zappie got in touch to ask if we'd like to try out their new range of wall stickers, I was instantly intrigued. These aren't just ordinary wall stickers - they are special interactive ones that come to life in a free ipad and smartphone app.

I'll come back to the special interactive element in a second, but even without it, the stickers are lovely. They're very cute and appealing, the colours are bright and cheerful and they're perfect for children of both sexes. They unpeel easily from the sheet, stick to the wall (or mirror or window) simply and can be repositioned.

The sticker sets are nursery rhyme-themed. Can you guess which set we got from the picture. Give up already ?! 

OK, I'll give you a clue. The app offers eight different nursery rhymes relating to the different products in the range :

1) Five little monkeys jumping on the bed
2) I’m a little teapot
3) Five little ducks went swimming one day
4) Wheels on the bus go round and round
5) Row, row, row your boat
6) Old MacDonald had a farm
7) Once I caught a fish alive
8) Twinkle twinkle little star

We got the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star ones. See the little star hiding at the top of the middle sheet of stickers?! 

If you're rolling you're eyes and saying "oh I get it, they're forcing into buying more of their products to unlock the rest of the app", stop being cynical ! You can watch all eight of the nursery rhymes on the app even if you haven't got any of the stickers at all.

If you do have some of the stickers (or other products that they make, such as heat transfers, small stickers, greeting cards or upcoming interactive pet products), you just point the ipad or smartphone at the sticker, "tap it to zap it" and see the corresponding nursery rhyme start playing on the app. The Madhouse Mini-testers loved pointing the ipad at the wall  and using the stickers to select the nursery rhyme. They also enjoyed singing along with them.

It's a lovely idea and, as the app is totally free to download, you can go and have a play to see what you think before checking out the accompanying products.

star rating : 4.5/5

RRP :  £21.99 for the wall stickers, free for the app
