Smart Alley Sticker Activity Tote Giveaway!

I met up with Gabriel of Smart Alley a couple of months ago. Smart Alley specialises in quality educational products for children from pre-school to primary school levels.

The people that own Smart Alley are experienced folks in this industry. They have been offering children's products and working with schools and educational institutions for many years. I was pretty impressed by what was shared with me. I recently ordered a bunch of stuff for Bubbles and as gifts, and made good use of their Free Delivery service for orders above S$100 (how great is that!!). They also do free gift-wrapping!

Today, I am really excited to be sharing with you about one of Smart Alley's (many!) products and am offering one up as a giveaway!

I bought this Sticker Activity Tote for Bubbles a while back, given that she loves playing with stickers. Needless to say, it has been a great hit not only with her, but also with us, her parents! The product description says: Great on-the-go package lets kids and families take this item in the car, on a plane, into a restaurant, or anywhere you might want an engaging activity that's easy to start and easy to clean up. I can vouch for this as our tote went with us all the way to Krabi, KL and back and it was very well used :)

The tote includes a bunch of reuseable cling stickers that you can stick onto a choice of 2 fold-out scenes. We had plenty of fun imagining stories as we worked on the stickers together. I found it a very good product to have conversations with Bubbles about what people in the scene are doing, where things should go, what is happening etc. Great for object recognition and storytelling! When Bubbles plays on her own, she is always intent to transfer ALL the stickers from their backings onto a scene. The best part is, everything comes off easily (even when one sticker is stuck on another, which happens often with us!). That, plus that fact that the stickers do not stick on anything else!

This is one product that will last for years as an older child would be able to manipulate the stickers to his/her own imagined scenarios. I also really liked that the colours of the stickers do not 'bleed'. We own some other reuseable cling stickers where the colours come off after a few rounds of man/toddler-handling.

Smart Alley carries a range of Creative Sticker Kits and have offered up one gorgeous Fun-in-the-Sun Activity Tote to one of A Dollop Of Me's readers! They also surprised me by generously agreeing to send this prize to a winner anywhere in the world! So, if you know of a kid between the ages of 1-plus to 6, you might want to win one for him/her!

To enter this draw, leave a comment sharing who you would like this Sticker Tote for.

The draw will end on Sunday 5 June 12 noon (Singapore time, UTC/GMT +8 hours).

Do help spread the word! =)

In the meantime, you might want to check out Smart Alley's site. There are links to their site on my blog's sidebar too. They're having the Great Singapore Sale promotion on now!

fibrate said...

Oooh I'm so going to check out Smart Alley on my next trip to Singapore! Muffin would love this :)

Ruth said...

Thanks for introducing us to Smart Alley! I checked out their website and they have a really good range of products! I was just thinking the other day about getting some stickers for Kenan to play with (he's never played with them before) and this activity tote looks like a great way to introduce him to stickers :)

Mui Lin said...

This is great giveaway. My 2 older kids can play with this. My DD can use this to have a go at creating storylines. While my DS can use this to improve on his speech.

Ling said...

Thanks for telling me about Smart Alley. My son's the same age as bubbles, and his latest craze is STICKERS. I can imagine the smile on his face when he sees this.

~tif;fany* said...

wow, even *i* wanna play the stickers myself! :) i would love to win a set for my god-daughter Shanelle, whom even though is only 1 year old, loves fiddling with stickers already! am sure this set of stickers will be much much appreciated by the little one and her mama (whom has been finding stickers stuck onto her work bag and nonetheless still carry the bag to work!).

Xu kejia said...

I want it for my 3 yrs old princess. She always love to play with stickers . Especially when it's reusable , it's environmental friendly .

didally said...

I bought a set of reusable stickers which unfortunately is very hard to remove from the board(that comes with the stickers). My son could only stick but cannot peel off the stickers himself and he loses interest soon.

This set looks more interesting and easy to play with.

olimomok said...

OOOH thanks for the heads-up! I can see quite a few that I know will be a hit with Sean!

Do they have a brick-and-mortar shop too? Seem to remember reading about it from someone's blog before.

dancingant said...

hi, thanks for the introduction! it's a really good site, especially when i'm heavily preggers with no. 2 and can hardly find time to go out there to shop.

i'd definitely love to have this for my first child, who's 1.5 years now. he's crazy over stickers and he loves to stick them all over himself, mummy, our floor, furnitures and his own toys! i would really love to use the activity tote to weave more meaning and stories into the stickers. and being so active, i do hope the sticker activity will keep him occupied and seated for just a tad longer. :)

thanks once again!

Yuling said...

Thanks for the heads-up!
Would love to have this for Missy! How fun that you are doing this! :)

Tan Yee Lin said...

Thanks for sharing the site! It looks like there are loads of interesting educational products I should check out for my boy. Would love to win the tote for him :)

mama said...

This is timely! I was just wondering if my son has been playing too many iphone apps, although the educational apps, not very good for his eyes. This sticker activity would be a great toy to keep him occupied in the car, restaurant etc.

cote-p said...

cool! this will be great for the little one.. tho the kor kor will prob snatch it away.. think i need to get 2! :D

Corsage@A Dollop Of Me said...

Thanks everyone for participating in this giveaway! :)

Just to respond to a few of your questions/comments:

Didally:
Yes! These stickers come off easily. The smaller pieces might be more difficult to handle for the tiniest tots, but in general they are easy for them to use! Thanks for participating :)

Oilimomok:
Yes their shop is at 81 East Coast Road #01-01. It is not exactly in the most convenient of locations hence the online store!

Cote-p:
Haha, if you win, they can each take one storyboard! ;)

mc said...

Keira loves stickers, unfortunately she will stick them EVERYWHERE. So her bed, her bags, her table, her toy boxes are covered with stickers. But I'm sure she'd love some more. and maybe she'll share some with little bro, Sean :)

Anya's mom said...

This looks really fun! Anya started playing with stickers recently, and I was secretly wishing that there are reusable stickers that gives her educational fun over and over again. You mean there aRE? Cool bananas! Gonna check their website out! :D

goolypop said...

For MJ, if he were still alive. He liked stuff like this. I'm just saying..cos I'm almost always unlucky with lucky draws. :p

Vivien said...

Hi! I would love to win this sticker tote for my 2 gals. They love stickers but the non-reusable types can only last them a mere 10 mins of play as they always mess it all up. These reusable ones are thus a great idea!

MamaJ said...

Oooh, thanks for the giveaway! Would love this for our little boy... stickers are a hit with him, and reusable stickers... even better! :)

Susan said...

I have the perfect recipient of this sticker activity tote giveaway, ME, only because I'm going to share this with Sophie as she loves stickers :)

daphne said...

Very nice giveaway! My 2 kids will love this but FYI, I'm definitely keeping it for myself. If they're good, I'll let them watch while I play.

Michelle W said...

I just ordered some educational toys from Smart Alley. ;) It would be awesome if I get to win this for my little 19 months old EnEn. The reusable stickers can keep her busy while Mummy get some housework or cooking done.:))))

Corsage@A Dollop Of Me said...

Goolypop:
I am SO going to put you in the draw anyway ;)

coolart said...

My 19 month old son would love this! He's starting to like stickers. It's awesome that it's reusable.
Love your blog by the way.

Ling said...

My son loves STICKERS! Would love to win this for him. And thanks for telling me about "Smart Alley". Will check them out.

JuniorLee said...

my Charis will be thrilled to own this! :)

Alex said...

My two kids under 4 would enjoy fighting over this!

Pauline Chong said...

The sticker tote would be great for my 2 older kids, my 5-yr old son and 3-yr old daughter. However, I think it should go to my daughter, Gail, coz she adores stickers and it's one of the few things she can manipulate all by herself. I'd give her sticker books and she loves going around asking us if we would like a sticker, and then take great joy in peeling out one for us. It's great that there are now scenes that she can stick the stickers on. More active play, I say! :)

Jane said...

Corsage, finally got to visit your blog after a few days. Cute stickers Titus would love to own this!

josiah n faith said...

My two kids would love this! Already they have stickers all over their cupboard and water bottles. It'll be a great way to keep them entertained when we go out for a meal - so we can actually have some decent conversation with other adults for a change!

cakemania said...

This will be an absolute great gift for my 18 months old girl. Love to see the glee look on her face when she is playing with this sticker activity.

Katrina said...

I would love it for my daughter.

My daughter would love this set of stickers!!! =D

c.y said...

I am pretty sure it will be a hit with my 2.5 yo daughter too! Thanks! At the rate that stickers are used now, I could do well with reusable ones *grinz

Poiema said...

It'd be for Kate! I see yr blog has gone into business! :)

babymaking said...

oh, would love the portability of a sticker kit esp when dining out. at least it keeps daddy from whining when bb has his iphone!

Samantha said...

Thanks for sharing this! As an early childhood educator, I'm always trying to find small little things that can be introduced and used in the classroom. These stickers will definitely allow me to conduct storytelling lessons in a more interactive & interesting way!

shan said...

Would love to have this Sticker Tote for my 2 darlings... will see if they 'fight' for it or they play this together :) To me both ways are the process of bonding to them :)

Serene said...

Would like to get these reusable ones so that I can con (hopefully) my boy into thinking he has tons and tons of new stickers! :p

mingyuan said...

i'd love this for my almost 2 year old girl. she's been running and jumping around a lot but nothing can keep her entertained to sit and work with her fingers for long. hopefully this will change that!

claragaby said...

*hands raised* ME!
J doesn't quite appreciate stickers yet (he much prefers them in his mouth), but I would love to use these for story-telling time.

Thanks for introducing the site - I can see myself getting the 'Fun in the Sun' and 'School' kits already :D

AlasMyDear said...

oh my! I can't believe I'm so suaku! I haven't come across re-useable stickers before. We've been giving the little girl paper sticky-sticky ones and hovering around like vultures to make sure she doesn't stick them too much over the place! It's such a pain scraping paper ones off surfaces. WOuld love to try this!

sharmane said...

Will be a BONUS if caleb can get to bring it along for the upcoming trip!

Stephanie said...

Thanks for recommending this! I have been hunting around for stickers for Zach and Ann.

Think its a universal truth that kids love stickers!
