When we first decorated the nursery whilst expecting our first child my husband and I had decided not to find out what sex the baby would be and so we had to decorate the nursery quite neutrally which we were more than happy with anyway. When we took the steps to move my son in to a bed as opposed to his cot though we decided to redecorate the room in to a more fun looking room for him and so we purchased the fun to see undersea room make over kit online for £40.00 from memory and this is my review of the product.
The fun to see undersea room make over kit is basically a set of 96 stickers in a under the sea theme which can be used to basically decorate the walls as if they have been painted in to a mural. I was a member of a baby talk forum when my son was smaller and I had seen many people mention these kits and talk about their positive experience with them and so I had no qualms in ordering them for my son's room.
We started by actually drawing on a waved line around the whole of the room which probably came up to around half way up the wall, possibly a bit higher. We painted the underneath part of the walls a lovely bright blue colour to give the image of the sea and as the top part of the walls were already a neutral colour we decided to leave that as it was as it really contrasted well with the blue paint. What is nice with these stickers is you do not have the need to use a border in the room and so whilst the stickers weren't cheap at forty pounds we did feel it wasn't so bad as we didn't need to purchase another border and adhesive to stick the border and things.
Inside the pack of stickers there are 96 stickers as I mentioned earlier and there are also ideas on how to best use the stickers as well included on the packaging but this really is just down to you and you can arrange the stickers any way you like. The stickers really do vary in size and so you have some really quite large ones such as the treasure chest, dolphin and octopus and then some good sized fish, seahorses and fish as well as lots of smaller things such as bubbles to dot around too. My son's bedroom was a reasonable sized room and we had enough stickers to really create a nice under the sea theme without sections looking bare or untouched and so I would say this is certainly a complete set and if you have a small box room to decorate you may even find you have too many stickers!
The stickers come attached to a white plastic backing which you need to peel them from and I would say be careful doing this because if you are a bit heavy handed you may end up ripping one of them. The stickers are nicely sticky and stick well to the walls and can be repositioned if needs be but other than on the first application we did try to avoid this because I think the stickers lose some of their stickiness and would peel. My son went through a phase when he was around three of taking the bubbles off and sticking them wherever he fancied and we did notice some of them just seemed to lift at the edges eventually.
These stickers are really brightly coloured and they just stood out so well on the wall and my son loved the look of his bedroom then. Anyone that would come in to his room always commented on what a cool bedroom it was and some thought that we had painted the under sea elements on the wall ourselves which is testament to how good these stickers look when on the wall as you can't really tell they are stickers unless you get really close up.
You can get various themes in these stickers such as jungle or the hungry caterpillar ones and I have to say I would totally recommend them as they transform a room so easily and make it a really nice place to be for a child in my opinion. The outlay is certainly much cheaper than painting and I personally think the look is much better than that of a border. The stickers stuck to the walls well and stayed stuck to the wall even after three years and they only came down when my ex husband decided to decorate my son's room in to a more neutral spare bedroom to try and increase his chances of selling the house.
Recommended and thank you for reading my review!
After my bathroom having a complete make over it looked very bright in pure white but it needed some decorations to make it nice and kid friendly for my girls.
I bought the jumbo wall stickers from a magazine in the sunday paper. There are ninty six stickers in one pack costing £29.99.
The stickers are very bright and colourful. They are water proof so ideal for a bathroom. Each sticker is a different size, the whale and mermaid being the biggest in the pack at six inches tall. Loads to chooses from sea weed, mermaid, whale , few dolphins, rocks , sea worms, starfish, crab and more but will be here all week naming them. To stick the stickers on the walls or tiles the area has to be cleaned and dried before using, they are very easy to peel of the paper, line them up where you want to put them and stick smooth out the small air bubbles. If you wish to move the sticker just peel from the wall and its that simple. There is endless ways to decorate using the stickers. We have the seaweed and rocks along the bottom of the bath panel and the mermaid fish etc on the shower wall, we have stuck around 30 stickers up so had loads left over.
Jess and hannah love the bathroom it reminds them of there dvd the disney little mermaid.
These really are cool.
I definitely recommend the jumbo undersea stickers.
Our bathroom was decidely boring. It was tiled pretty much all over and made it difficult to put anything thing up with hooks etc. I wanted to brighten it up and took my daughter and husband on a little hunt for those reusable stickers you can put on the wall.
We found these FunToSee Jumbo Wall Stickers - Undersea Adventure in Wilkinsons and they were reduced from £40.00 to £15.00 as there was damaged to the packaging and some missing out of the box. I thought it was quite a bargain, my daughter loved them and both my husband and I thought the under the sea theme fitted in well with the bathroom. So we purchased them.
When we got home we found out that there should be 96 stickers in the pack and we had 80 so there was only 16 stickers missing and there was no way we were going to use all of those so we really had a little bargain on our hands.
There was a huge variety of stickers with different sea animals some of them were: Whale, octopus, sea worms, fish, anchor and rope, seahorse, dolphin, treasure chest and more. I was really pleased that the stickers were not all animals as I thought a rope and anchor would look really good too and really "under the sea" like.
Each sticker was brightly coloured and all of the animals cute. These are slightly kid like but they look really good for a bathroom as well as a bedroom I think. The stickers are vinyl, removable and re-stickable, splash-proof and washable so they cover pretty much every aspect of cleaning and worry that they could muster.
To apply the stickers all you need to do is peel the stickers off of the backing and stick them to a clean wall. The instructions stated that these stickers stick better to a painted wall but as we only had tiling on the walls we had to take a chance with them.
The stickers came with a little tool to smooth them out when they were being placed but we didn't bother to use it as using the palm of your hand works just as well.
Once all the stickers were placed we really did have an underwater bathroom and they looked fabulous. My daughter loved it and the bathroom soon became her favourite room in the house and my husband thought they looked good too. The only thing now was to see if they came off as obviously a bathroom will generate steam and condensation.
I can honestly say that these stickers have never once peeled or come off of the wall even being in the bathroom. They still look just as good as the day we put them up. I was really surprised as I was certain they would end up coming down. Even after we have moved them about (they peeled off fine and didn't leave any residue) they have stuck perfectly again just as they would if you had just got them out of the pack.
Highly recommended product! 5 Doo Yoo Stars!
I've now bought 2 sets of Fun to See stickers - undersea adventure and Winnie the Pooh and have been really happy with them.
The stickers are really simple to apply, you just need a clean, preferably painted wall and away you go. Both times I tok inspiration from the pictures on the box to create a background landscape for the stickers. Easy enough to do, you just mark the walls out with masking tape to paint sky, grass, sea bed - whatever fits best with your stickers. Then all you need to do is peel your stickers off and apply them. Most of them come away really easy, but some of the bigger ones can be a bit tricky as they can get stuck to themselves and are a nightmare to separate. The kit comes with a smoothing tool so that you can make sure there are no air bubbles in the stickers once they are on. Personally though I found that using your hand worked just as well.
My daughter has had the pooh bear stickers in her room for 3 years now and they are wearing really well. We've moved a couple as we've rearranged furniture and had no problems - they didn't pull off any paint and we had no problems re-sticking them in other areas.
We found them so good that we decided to use them again when decorating my son's room and once again had a brilliant result.
I purchased these for my younger sisters room.I don't usually enjoy decorating so was slightely worried about the hassle involved.How wrong was I!The stickers are so easy to apply.I can't give out instructions because there aren't really any.You just remove the stickers from the back panel and stick onto the desired location.Thats it!
The result was great.Her room looks so much more colourful and updated. Everybody is asking how I did it!
They aren't all that cheap,so the price may put some people off. But considering how many stickers there are in a pack,and how much coverage they provide, I would say they aren't all that bad value.
I must not forget to mention that once they've been applied onto the wall they do not look much like stickers.The stickers appear as though they have been painted onto the wall(if that makes any sense)
It was great seeing the look on my sisters face once it was finished.She looked very impressed.
I'm deducting one star for this product ,only because of the price.
A delightful set of wall stickers for under the deep blue sea.
