Use these cool stickers to create your very own settings for Wonky to play in. Comprises five scenes from Wonky's world and 32 removeable stickers.
I love the Wonky Donkey, I already own the book, cd, toy and the house that wonky brought so when I saw the sticker scene book up for review I was really keen to review it. I was so excited when it arrived and even though there were no children around I was keen for a play.
The book is very well done with 5 interesting scenes and lots of cool stickers so you can let your imagination run wild. The following day I took the book into work and gave it a try with a small group of children. It was very popular and they enjoyed creating their own scenes and telling me all about what was happening in the picture. I got some very interesting stories.
The book was revisited several times throughout the day and I was impressed with how easy the stickers came on and off. They stood up well to being used over and over again in such a short period of time. By the end of the day about 20 different 3-5yr olds had tried the book out.
One of the stickers did end up with a small rip in it but that was when it was first being taken off the main page to use on the scenes. It got stuck slightly and being kids they just ripped. After that I removed them all for the first use. Once on the scene we haven't had a problem pulling them on and off to change them around.
I can see that the sticker scenes are going to be a firm favourite which I will pull out lots in the winter months. It's so good to find something children love which actually stands up to them using it.
The Wonky Donkey is a family favourite in this household so I jumped at the chance to review the sticker scene version of the book. The kids were also excited to see this in my parcel. The book contains 5 scenes and 32 stickers on one sheet to create fun spots for The Wonky Donkey to play.
There is a paddock scene, a garden scene, a kitchen scene, a bedroom scene and a bathroom scene. There are suitable stickers for each area. My little Mr two loved the bathroom soon as there is a duck "like my bath" he kept telling me. There are no word inn the book so we had fun making up stuff that we thought The Wonky Donkey would like to be doing. Mr 2 was most excited that we could have Wonky Donkey playing a guitar and was content singing to the book.
Many "removable" stickers are not as removable as implied but the stickers lifted easily and allowed us to change them around and make new scenes. It also allowed us to use the stickers on more than one page. We had a lot of fun singing with Wonky Donkey, bathing him and putting his bed in a paddock.
Perfect book for rainy day fun! Big hit at my place!
