There is no 2 without 3! New episodes on tv for the Bing rabbit and new sticker album. We are big fans of Diramix products, for several years they have been making interesting albums, it is a pity that they too fall on the quality of the paper. Maybe we have become boring and repetitive but really all those folds leafing through the pages is a blow to the heart, probably the children will not notice it, we collectors will.
Now in the third album, Diramix has treasured past experiences and there are both confirmations and some differences from the previous ones. The album is smaller, conforming to similar products, a detail that is genuinely not important, the size is the right one.
The format is instead confirmed, in the first pages presentation of the characters and to follow the images in stickers of the new adventures of Bing and his friends. The stories are interspersed with more interactive pages where children can play with the cute bunny; the format of the cartoon is re-proposed, small stories from the everyday life of each child, useful for learning even through the small inevitable mistakes and .. messes, memorable to the point of dedicating two pages to the end of the album. Bing wants to know about its little collector friends, so here are the games to write your name and favorite ingredients.
The central insert with the stick & stack stickers has been confirmed, a strong point that is always very fun, difficult to find doubles for exchanges because, rightly, children use them all to play with. Another not insignificant detail is the decrease in the total stickers, from 258 in 2020 to 190 of this album. An appropriate and correct choice, limiting the number of stickers does not imply a loss of quality or completeness of the album, on the contrary. Except for some cases it is advisable to keep, for this type of album, under 200 stickers.
Small but nice stickers, it’s a pity that for this edition the “pelosine” are no longer present, to the touch they were fun and in relief they made their figure. Instead, the classic glitter and the shaped ones are confirmed, complicated but always the most fun to attack.
Bing is one of the most successful characters of the new generation of cartoons for the little ones (adults like it too!), Nice album to complete, a pity only for the poor quality of the paper.
Diramix, don’t do that anymore!
