comment: third release of the Santoro dolls, also for Panini. Just as for merchandising distributed all over the world, stickers can also have hundreds of variations, in fact you could have an album every six months for years without ever having to repeat it!
Panini learns from the flaws of the previous album by improving it, special mention for the stickers, the special extras are far more beautiful than the previous ones. They are more cared for and better made, they are created to be able to embellish your personal objects with the possibility of being personalized, by writing your name on them. Another important detail, they are numbered (G1-G18) so as to eliminate problems with previous albums, especially for those who wanted to order the missing ones.
Assuming that now the cost in general of the stickers has become important, but in line now (sigh) with the cost of living, at least in this case they have their why. Basically these packets have a lot more reasons at 1 euro than many other collections at 0.70-0.80. In this collection the stickers are the added value, in large format, different specials with raised or rough details. They were born to be attached to the album, but if desired, they are suitable as an object in their own right, really beautiful.
Speaking of the album, always a giant format and quality paper, Panini implements it here too, making every single page a game, so much so that I would invite mothers to buy two albums (by purchasing the starter pack, the actual album is free), one to complete it with stickers and the other where the girls can use it to complete all the games. Not so easy, actually, because different activities are related precisely to having the stickers on the album. In short, good luck finding the least invasive solution possible!
Super interactive album, simple games, but also more articulated and linked to dreams, passions, desires and everyday life. Test, art attack and much more. Note of merit for the first page where Panini invites the girls to connect names of great women of the past, all in their context and in their epoch have contributed to female emancipation.
The choice to make a collection that is not too long is also appreciable, the total number of stickers does not exceed 192 standards for non-sports albums, this helps not to have to go crazy too much to complete it, on the other hand it also allows Panini to create several in a short time .
Last consideration, adding cards to this collection would have been a forcing, it is already so beautiful and the stickers, somehow, are already cards in their own way. Nice, really.
