Between stickers and kangaroos! The album of the successful cartoon TV series Bluey arrives, made in Australia and which owes so much to those beautiful and distant lands. The target is the very young, but the episodes use the charm of animation and animals to also tell about their country, its culture.
The protagonist is Bluey, a 6-year-old dog and her cheerful family, starting with her younger sister Bingo, from these two characters the structure of the album evolves, which follows the now classic canons of Diramix products on cartoons. The four Bing albums released so far are proof of this, although, fortunately, the mistake of the latest, maxi format, was avoided.
The first part of the album is dedicated to introducing Bluey’s world, family, friends, etc. We are fans of Diramix for the quality of the albums from a graphic point of view, their ability to bring products that know how to be simple but not trivial. The care of the captions, which accompany practically every sticker, allow you to entertain both the child who already knows how to read or hopefully the adult who can tell the story by helping the little ones to attach the stickers.
Second part of the album dedicated to the adventures of our friends, which reflect the stories told in cartoon episodes. The page we have chosen to show (above) is not by chance, in the first packets we have not yet found the right ones, but we are very curious to see what Bluey’s big dollar stickers are like. Another important aspect is creating interaction with the child, the album must be fun not only by attaching the stickers but as a whole.
Another typical feature of Diramix albums is the central attachment where you can attach the 20 stick & stack stickers and then create new stories with our new Australian friends. On the first page, the five stickers A to dress up as you like Bluey and Bingo, on the last page, the five stickers C to tidy up the bedroom. The central poster with the ten stickers A to invent stories in the four different scenographies. If Diramix always proposes it again, it means that you like it, go on like this.
Good quality album, nice cartoon and also modern, Diramix is one of the last stoic publishers that still presents packets at relatively low prices. Above all the right number of total stickers, we will repeat it to the point of boredom, it is no longer time for monumental albums, also considering the vast and extensive proposal on newsstands and the availability of families always contained.
“This is the way”, we are not in Star Wars, but in the real world and the world of stickers, which we adore, we want to have a future, towards infinity and beyond.
