FunToSee Jumbo Wall Stickers - Undersea Adventure
Advantages: easy to use, colourful, look great
Disadvantages: none for me
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!
