The Stuff that Saves Us - Sticker Book

FAMK has decided to try a little something called "the Stuff that Saves Us," where we tell you all about the latest life-saving / sanity-saving products we have tried and found to be true. Hopefully some of our discoveries will help to make your life a little easier. 

A little while before Christmas on her personal Instagram feed, Lyndsi shared her discovery of these reusable sticker books by Melissa & Doug (do they make anything that isn't fantastic?) and suggested that moms everywhere with young toddlers go out and buy them:

The picture is crappy, but let me tell you what, these sticker books are awesome. No more peeling and scraping and scrubbing days-old stickers off of my furniture, and Jonah can still have endless amounts of fun. He loves these things, and they keep him quiet when I desperately need him to be! Though the pad is on the larger side, if you usually heft around a big old tote or diaper bag (like I do) with supplies for changing diapers and distracting your child from public tantrums, it's pretty portable. 

There are several different sticker books - from food to cars to dress up - and they're not expensive either. When Lyndsi first recommended them they were one of Amazon's extra special Christmas deals for only $3! Right now I think they're about $6, but still - that's six bucks that will buy you more quiet rejuvenation time than you've probably had in a while. Worth it. 
Just check out the creativity this toy allows - the possibilities are endless!

He can seriously play with these all day long. So if you're on the hunt for the perfect inexpensive gift for that little sticker-lover in your life, or planning a lengthy road trip, or booking some cross-country airline tickets for the whole family, Jonah and I (and Lyndsi and Charlotte) give these babies two huge thumbs up.

  1. My mom got some of these for her grandkids to play with. They. Are. Awesome! Of course, now my almost 3 year old seems to think she can reuse any sticker as many times as she wants which gets kinda gross when you have a shedding dog….


Don't hold it in, let moms everywhere partake of your wisdom!
