Too many parts and bad packaging
on 2 August 2014
Like many others have commented, the giraffe coming in three separate parts is really annoying. We knew it would be the case as we read the review before buying, but didn't quite appreciate how long it would take you to even semi align those parts! Even more annoying was the ruler bit, it also came in three parts plus all the numbers separately. Took me a while to work out which part should come after which, or did it matter at all (the giraffe parts were more obvious, obviously. Not so the ruler!). So the ruler is not straight, the overlap not perfectly aligned and basically rather inaccurate to use that to measure height. You also don't get any grace when trying to remove and restick - simply will tear the stickers. The packaging is rubbish - not protecting the poster AT ALL.
However the monkey and giraffe are cute and my daughter kisses them every evening before she goes to bed, so it feels it's worth having it there I suppose. Given the price I paid, there shouldn't be more complaints than the above.
Thoughts after buying the second set:
Reason for doing so was that we moved home, and the stickers were simply rubbish to take off the wall. You try to pull the little heart or a cloud part of your wall paint came off. My daughter misses it dearly so we ordered an identical set to put in her new home. The photo is the state it arrived - the face of the monkey and giraffe are so damaged its almost heart breaking to put them up. Unacceptable packaging to be honest. I would rather you charge me for shipping (and shipping that from HK costs less than sending an A4 letter in first class here!!) and package it properly. Therefore I have since taken another star away. Sorry.
