Melissa and Doug Alphabet & Numbers Sticker Collection review

Along with the See Inside Numbers peg puzzle that I reviewed here, the lovely people at VUP Baby also sent us an Alphabet & Numbers Sticker Collection, also from Melissa & Doug. 10-year-old Sophie instantly volunteered as chief tester for this one !

The roughly A4-sized pad contains ten pages of stickers with the alphabet and numbers from 1-10 in various styles and sizes of writing. If your kids like arts and crafts, they will be able to think up numerous projects for using them. Sophie, for example, instantly said that they would be ideal for using with her My Clippy Bags of Style (that we reviewed here) and her Hello Kitty Cool Cardz Studio (that we reviewed here).

Even as a grown-up, I thought they looked fabulous for using in scrapbooking and card-making or for personalising things like school books, lunch boxes or water bottles for the kids. If you have younger children who can't read or spell yet, they don't have to feel left out because the books also exist with picture stickers, featuring themes like fashion and dinosaurs, amongst other things, so you could let your imagination run riot and create huge sticker scenes. Just what you need to while away a cold, wet half-term afternoon, if you ask me !

Bearing in mind you get over a thousand stickers in total, the fact that it costs less than a fiver sounds like a total bargain to me too.
