Family Fun: Panini Toy Story 3 Stickers

As my daughter has gotten older, I’ve looked for any opportunity possible to get her into collecting.  It hasn’t been that difficult since kids always look to do the same things that adults are doing.  When I’m searching the card aisle at Target, my daughter is also looking for something she might want to open such as Spongebob cards or Bella Sera figures.

My whole family shares a love of Pixar movies.  We went to see Toy Story 3 opening weekend and loved it.  While out shopping the other day with my daughter, we picked up the Toy Story 3 sticker album and a handful of packs.  I expected something along the lines of sticker albums that I had purchased as a kid, but what we got was something a lot more cool.

I don’t know how the collation runs on these things, but there is something close to chase stickers in this set.  In every 8 sticker pack you seem to get two stickers that are either the shiny prisms or the very cool, reflective fabric stickers.

Special


The prismatic stickers look very cool and scan well also.  Here are a couple of shiny Slinky Dog stickers.  You can’t tell from the scan, but the Little Green Army Man sticker is printed on a reflective fabric.  These stickers are very nice and I’m hoping for a few duplicates of these to keep after completing the set.

Finished
Here’s what a completed page looks like.  The stickers are die cut to different shapes which makes for a great looking page when done, but this is not something that a little kid can do with good results.  When I was putting stickers into the album with my daughter, she took care of all of the rectangle stickers which I did all of the weird shapes.  Even I couldn’t line things up properly.  Check out the pipe to the left of Slink.  Oops.  There are three stickers on this page.  The first is of Hamm, Rex and Jesse, the second is of Woody and Buzz while the final one has Mr. Potato Head and Slinky Dog on it.

There are 180 stickers in the set which is pretty large.  I plan on buying a box of stickers to open a little at a time with my daughter and hopefully we can at least get close enough so that an order of singles from Panini will finish off the set.  This has been a fun way to share my collecting hobby with my daughter and I know that I’ll end up reading her the story in the book (Oh yes, the sticker book also doubles as a story book) many times before all is said and done.  Thanks Panini for a great set!

Hi - I found your post while searching for someone who would possibly want to trade the Toy Story 3 stickers. We have bought many packs and have several duplicates and even triplicates! Would you want to trade? If so, please e-mail me at carrie@kietzman.com

Thanks =)

This is a great thing to do with your kid. My son has been enjoying his sticker book for the past month, but now it is harder and harder to find new stickers.

We have a bunch of duplicates if you would want to trade.

Eric,

I know what you mean about the stickers. I was going to contact people about some trades, but then my daughter decided that she wanted to put the extras in her other sticker book along with all the stickers that she's gotten from the doctor, dentist, store, etc. So, we ended up ordering the last few stickers that we needed from the Panini website. That might a good option for yourself as well.

Nick and others who have inquired about trades: My daughter ended up deciding that she wanted the extras to put in her regular sticker book so we ended up finishing up the set by sending away for what we needed directly from Panini. It was easy, the price was right and I even got to pick up a few extras of the cool reflective fabric stickers.
