Zappie a different take on stickers

As you know I’m always on the look out for something a bit different, something to make Monkey chuckle.  He has some transport themed stickers up on his bedroom walls – the vehicles travel on a twisted route up and around picture frames and around his bed and bedside table.  They look lovely, but they don’t actually do anything.  Yes, that’s right you can actually buy wall stickers that do something!  May I introduce Zappie a different take on stickers.

Zappie a different take on wall stickersZappie is an innovative new concept which uses augmented reality technology to bring children’s pictures, characters and images to life, for the purposes of learning, development and play.

These stickers can actually sing to you!  The various products available from Zappie are based around 8 well-loved nursery rhymes.  You can buy greetings cards, heat transfers, wall stickers and general stickers as well as a DVD featuring all the magical songs.

I received the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star small Wall Sticker set priced at £21.99 and the Row Row Row Your Boat fun sticker set for £3.99

The Small Set of Wall Stickers from the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Set consists of 3 sheets, with numerous stickers as you can see in the photo’s above.  You place your stickers on a wall, cupboard or other furniture as you would do with any normal wall stickers.  I’ve learnt from experience, don’t place the stickers firmly until you are happy with their position.  Now for the clever part!

Download the Zappie Rhymes App to your Android or Apple phone through Google Play or iTunes.  It’s free! When you’ve got the App on your phone, select the correct rhyme, you see a little character icon – this is the sticker that you need to hold your phone camera over.  Then watch as the magic unfolds as you Tap and Zap.  Once the video loads you can move away from the sticker and watch the video, join in the with rhyme and just enjoy.  The videos are really nice, well song and the graphics are bright and entertaining.

Zappie a different take on stickersYou do exactly the same with the other products.  I used the Row Row Row Your Boat fun stickers to liven up some of Monkey’s toy boxes. I liked the fact that you received a couple of the Boat themed stickers but also a couple of bonus stickers – we received Old MacDonald’s Farm – idea for a tractor mad Monkey.

Zappie a different take on stickersI really like the idea of these stickers, they offer something a little bit different and Monkey likes the added video element.  My only criticism is with the wall stickers – I wish more of the stickers activated the song.  For instance in the set we had, I wanted to stick with the transport theme on Monkey’s wall so wanted to just use the Hot Air Balloons and stars in that area, but only the three owls will activate the video – seems strange that the biggest star doesn’t too.  But other than that, I love this idea and can recommend to anyone wanting to brighten up their child’s room, toy boxes and playroom – great idea!

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
