Things I like about living in an apartment: not doing maintenance (hmm... short list)
Things I dislike about living in an apartment: lack of sunshine, inability to decorate freely,
crazy neighbors, stealing, graffiti... (the list goes on and on)
Our poor babies have been staring at blank walls since we moved from Nevada in October.
Bob took days painting and decorating their nursery there, it was beautiful!
We couldn't decide what to do for them that would be temporary, beautiful,
and easily removable since we are living in an apartment.
Cue Fun To See
We were so excited to stumble on their website.
Anything that entertains twins for more than two minutes gets a win in my book!
They have many options for decorating kids' room (not just bedrooms, playrooms, too!)
all completely removable and easy to apply.
I decided to try the Very Hungry Caterpillar Room Decorating Kit
per the boys' love of the book (and anything Eric Carle, really).
The minute the decals arrived we ripped them open.
Inside were contact sheets in a manageable size,
a "squeegee" to rub out air bubbles,
and instructions for application.
In addition to these fun decals they also offer entire room makeover kits,
stickable borders and alphabets, a variety of decor themes,
free printable coloring sheets, how-to tips, and arts & crafts supplies
What I Love:
gorgeous vivid colors, completely removable and/or transferable, stunning Eric Carle picture replicas, easy to handle large sizes, learning tools built-in (numbers 1-10, days of the week, fruits, colors), kit includes everything you need (no running to the kitchen for scissors, a ruler, tape)
What I'd Like:
I would only change two details, that don't coincide with the book precisely. Number one is the number of "caterpillar holes" cut into the leaf decal (four in the book, one in the decal), which may or may not be an issue as the boys become more aware of details in design. Number two: the book only counts up to five, but the decals come with numbers 1-10, making five numbers unnecessary extras.
Price To Buy: $40.00
I am glad to have found something so easy to apply for our temporary apartment stay (total application time was a mere 20 minutes). FunToSee is a great company to communicate with and made the entire process effortless. And finally they created a simple, beautiful decoration kit that satisfied all the kids in my life! wink wink
