comment: it is not easy to review this album, more than others I probably pay my age no younger because I definitely don’t see the qualities that a teenager notices.
It is certainly an unusual, particular, different album (as the advertisement itself says), given that the extras are more than those that find space inside: 88 the first, 80 the second!
First of all, it is not an album of stickers but of cards, the 80 numbered cards find space inside using the cut corners. Appreciable that there is no presence of plastic, but for example it could be made more complete by giving space also to the 32 stickers.
Pages are nice and colorful in the Hello Kitty tradition, a character who makes “no sense” his strong point. The cards are very simple, of a quality similar to those released over the years combined with various supermarket initiatives.

For sure who wants to have the whole collection is not facilitated, in fact the stickers like the extra cards and the tattoos are not numbered, have fun for those who want to look for them all.
It is not clear whether from October it will be possible to order only the missing cards among the 80 numbered ones or even the rest. Price not very popular, especially the album at 2.50 without even a free packet.
We recommend the purchase of the tin box made in three different versions (lilac, pink, red) which in addition to the stickers is a nice object to be used to keep your secrets.

Non-collectors will probably appreciate the many extra usable stickers where you prefer, for us the old school remains more than a few doubts
