The return of the Cry Babies! Characters loved by the little ones are also once again the protagonists of a sticker album, excellent that this happens when it seems that Panini has finally found the right way in setting up sticker albums, starting with the quality of the paper.
It must also be said, in reality, that even with the first album released in September 2020, the choice of matte paper was good news. The clear conviction remains that it is often with these types of albums that the Modenese publisher demonstrates imagination and variety of proposals, much more than in static sports albums.
The album looks good, considering the target it is aimed at, we believe it is a product created for children and parents to play together, the many captions can be an opportunity to spend time with the family, with mum or dad who can read to children the story that accompanies the figurines. Take advantage of the opportunity!
Rightly so, the album is also full of moments of leisure, quizzes, games and more. On the first pages, a nice introduction to the world of babies, as if they were football players, each with their own card. Following are pages that introduce more and more details of this fun little world, while in others we can experience the adventures of our little heroes, complete with references to other myths of comics and cartoons.
Central part with opening poster, set up as if it were a photo album, to the point that there is also space to attach your own. The quality of the paper in this case is the glossy one, therefore lighter, to be handled with care. However, even this part, in the general context, is guessed.
The format of the stickers is the classic one, there are no shaped stickers but many special stickers, with special glitter and others to colour. In times of very light stickers that fly away with a breath of wind, a pleasure to discover in this case more substantial and very colorful and nice stickers. Perhaps born not only to be attached to the album but also to notebooks and a little everywhere.
Compared to other productions, the total number of stickers (180) and the relatively low cost, if compared to the rest of the products, make it a valid and interesting album.
