Review: Melissa & Doug Reusable Sticker Pad

We got this Melissa & Doug Reusable Sticker Pad over the weekend when we were at 112 Katong.

It was $9.90 well spent. The boy was in his 'I want to buy cars Mummy... I want to buy one only' mood. Well, you may think how sensible he is, only wanting to buy one car and I'm the strict mum who don't buy toys for him. It's the fact that he has got over 80 cars (I have not counted since many weeks back) and thinks he still needs that one more car, that we always have this same conversation. I have tried ways and means attempting to let him understand he really doesn't need another car. The cars he has are gifts from us, his doting grandparents, aunts and uncles.
Can't wait to start on this!
So we walked into a shop and saw this sticker pad and I bought it for him after explaining what it is and how much it cost to him. We had some time before dinner so we sat down at a cafe and he started to piece the stickers onto the Car scene (his favorite). He also asked for it again during dinner time and again before bedtime and in the morning before he goes to school. This is a light activity he can engage in and here's why we love it.

 5 Background Scenes
So they won't get bored of just one or two scenes. These scenes also help them identify the familiar settings for the different vehicles and activities going on eg: at the train station, at the construction site, on the roads.

Stickers that can be repositioned
These are perfect and encourages creativity. Kids can piece the stickers on the scenes and whenever they decide to change the positions of the stickers, they can be peeled off easily and be stuck on again.  

Fine motor skills
Those little hands and fingers peeling and sticking the stickers on the sticker pads help hone their fine motor skills. It also teaches them to be patient and peel carefully. It was so funny when I asked him to do it slowly to prevent tearing the stickers and when I helped to do so, he was like 'Mummy, slowly...' This also trains them to stick straight especially for the train scene on the train tracks and car scene on the roads.
Attempting to peel off the original position of the truck.
Good training for his fine motor skills.
Storytelling abilities
After piecing the scene together worn the stickers, it's fun to get them to tell you about what they have put together. Aiden likes to move the cars around as they take turns to get their petrol filled. He also positions the planes from flight to landing. 

It's lots of fun and I am happy this engaged the very active boy for awhile and we have been using it for 3 days in a row. Excited to shop for a different sticker pad with him when he tires of this, perhaps the Make a Meal Sticker Pad. Oh! And another plus point would be that this can be handed down for younger siblings as the stickers can be repositioned.

  1. I love this! Noah is still too young to handle stickers carefully, but it looks like a great learning activity book that I will bookmark for purchase in the future. Thanks for sharing!
