I am a child of the 80s, and I ♥ stickers! Even now I use them in my bullet journal, and have a huge stash of them from when I used to do scrapbooking.
And as a child of the 80s, I also remember collecting stickers in sticker books – my favourite was my Care Bears sticker book, which I still have tucked away in my box of memories! I remember going to the shop with my mum and buying a pack or two of stickers with my pennies. They were sealed inside paper envelopes so you didn’t know what you were going to get.
There was nothing more exciting than tearing open that sticker packet and seeing what stickers you had got. It was a joyous day if you got some that you needed to fill in the spaces of your book – but a bit of a downer when you already had them. They would go in the swaps pile to take to school!
I’m pretty sure kids these days still do that… don’t they? I mean, my 19 year old son and my 29 year old brother are collecting stickers for The World Cup and have been swapping theirs… maybe you just don’t really grow up!
Topps are delighted to introduce the I Believe in Unicorns Sticker Collection! A new magical world awaits, with a dazzling array of characters to meet and collect. Each unicorn has a unique personality, from Jeanie and her stylish squad of squad of Fashionistas, to Glaze and her Candycorn besties.
TOPPS sent me over a sticker book and a box of stickers, and I re-lived my childhood with my 5 year old niece. We sat in the garden at the weekend tearing open packets of stickers, flipping through the book and sticking them in place!
The little girl me would have been bursting with excitement had I had a FULL box of sticker packets to open for my Care Bears sticker book, back in the 80s!
Inside each packet of stickers (60p each) are 5 stickers – 4 regular ones, plus a special sticker. The special stickers are either shaped, like you can see in the picture above, or shiny. They are also easy peel making it simple for little fingers.
The Unicorns are adorable, and really cute. They have all sorts of different colourful designs and sweet little names.
There are also other fun activities in the sticker book like puzzles and things to colour in, as well a fun craft and recipe.
And you can work out what your Unicorn name is! I’m Rainbow Rocket 🦄🌈🚀
