5.0 out of 5 stars A hit with even the most reluctant child!, 16 Jun 2010
This review is from: Knights and Castles Sticker Book (Usborne Sticker Books) (Paperback)
I bought this for my 4 year old's birthday, mainly becuase he was also getting a huge castle with knights etc, due to this being his latest obsession. He's not into any kind of artsy/crafty stuff, or even colouring in, but when he was presented with this, I lost a whole day of my life while he begged me to help (and later this was demoted to watching) him do the sticker book.

It should in theory become boring after the 3rd, 4th or 5th page, but Usborne have cleverly themed the pages - there's one of a huge battle, with lots of gory stickers of knights falling from castles with swords through their middles, or arms falling off (I kid you not) but that's sort of the appeal - political correctness hasn't quite sucked the joy out of this yet. When you're bored of battling knights, there's the banquet page to fill in, or even the page on dressing each knight in his entire battle outfit, layer by layer.

All the subtleties of a good toy that adults can appreciate, are also here appreciated by the child too. Oh and did I mention that the illustrations, quality of the stickers, and short paragraphs explaining each page are also equally brilliant?!?

One of the biggest hits of his birthday - and I'm now going to buy more as gifts.
