“ Brand: Suck UK / Type: Sticky Notes „
This is a review of some Flip Book Sticky Notes made by Suck UK who make many great novelty gifts. The flip books are available in three designs but the ones I am reviewing are the ones I own, the skateboard set.
What are they?
Each set contains 100 sticky notes and they look quite ordinary until you get up close and there is a line drawing on the bottom of the pad. Flip through the book and you get an animation, in this case of a skateboarder going up a ramp and coming back down.
This set of sticky notes took me back to school days when doing a flip book in the corner of your exercise book was all the rage. It didn't always work but it guaranteed a grubby and raggy edge on your book for the rest of the school year!
I picked up a few packs for the bargain price of 25p each from the wonderful shop 'Home Bargains' I sent some in the post for friends who are fellow stationery lovers and kept a few for myself. You can buy these for £2 from Amazon with free delivery.
Do they work?
Yes, at first but you lose some of the animation obviously when you start to use the notes. Also, those receiving them may wonder why you are sending them a post it with a skateboarder on it but again, it is feint so they may not even notice it. Another plus point for this is that the picture doesn't intrude with the space on the note much so it still serves a purpose of writing space. They are nice and tacky but not too sticky and will adhere to most surfaces.
Other themes available
The other notes beside the skateboarder have a motorbike or an aeroplane on them. I guess if you buy them on Amazon you get a lucky dip as I can't see where you pick which theme you want.
I like these sticky notes as they were a bargain and they made me laugh. I think they are a fun item to have around the home and at least it proves you didn't pinch them from the office. I bought a few so have gifted them to people (ie. those who like skate boarding or motorbiking) as a little 'thinking of you' gift.
