      Occupies kids for a short while, but not really that good.

      I picked this up for my eldest son last year as a bit of a last minute purchase as something to open for Christmas morning. I wasn't really expecting a lot as it was only £1.85 at the time with postage, but as he is fond of anything involving stickers and he is also a big fan of the character Ben 10 from the TV show, I thought he would like it.

      As it turns out, the package made this look quite good. It comes in an A4 cardboard package with a clear panel on the front so you can see all the lovely looking stickers inside. The stickers are bright and colourful and contain a good mix of the characters from the show. You get 6 sheets of stickers, each sheet having 8 stickers on it.

      Upon opening the outer packaging, inside, the sticker sheets were glued to an adhesive strip running across another piece of card so you could see them when inside the package. At the bottom of the packaging was a small sticker book, about A6 in size. This book has a nice looking cover featuring a prominent picture of the main character Ben, and has about a dozen white waxy sheets on the inside. This is so you can stick and then re-use the stickers if you stick them in here.

      I found that using it in this way occupied my boys for about 5 minutes maximum as they were a bit bored sticking the colourful stickers on a white background. I suggested at first I drew some items in the book to make a little story book for them, but because the sticker book was waxy, I couldn't write on them on the kids behalf.

      On the back of the pack it suggests you can also use these to stick on book, letters and envelopes, and greeting cards. In my opinion, the stickers are nice, though fairly small. I think they are ok for the price but only if your child wants to use them in a more creative way than sticking in the book provided.

      We ended up sticking them onto paper and trying to make a bit of a scene with them as it felt a waste just moving them between pages in the provided book. I feel it might have been better for the set to be a little more expensive and come with a sticker book in the same material but with printed pictures on it, like street scenes or alien battles, where the kids could at least attempt to make their own scene. One positive is the stickers did come off the sheets fairly easily, and stuck to paper well without lifting.

      Another thing it would be good for, we sometimes make our own board games on paper or card by drawing out squares, using stickers or drawings to decorate the game in whatever thing the boys are currently raving about, then using mini figures and a dice to play the game we've made. These stickers are a great size for this sort of use too.

      I ended up feeling it was not as good as I expected. I thought my kids aged 4 and 5 might get a lot more fun out of it than they did, but I can't really grumble when I only spent £1.85. I should have known really. Ok for a little stocking filler, and I guess it would be cheap enough to buy this and then put a sheet of stickers in a party bag, but not that great to use with the provided sticker book. Best to approach this one with a lot of imagination.
