Disney Favourite Friends: Sticker Collection

If you see these packet in shops they’ll only say ‘DISNEY’ on the front but ‘Disney Favourite Friends’ is the official name of this sticker collection featuring a selection of Disney and Disney Pixar characters.

Stickers in the packet I got:

  • 40: Finding Nemo: A full body portrait of Mr Ray the Manta-ray smiling. A stock promotional image of him. The central sticker has no border but as you can see in the photo you can use the boarder if you want to use this sticker in isolation rather than place it in the album.
  • 67: Alladin: Gold foil sticker of Princess Jasmine with Apu and the Genie’s lamp
  • 159: Frozen: The bottom half of a two-part image of Olaf, Sven and Kristoff
  • 175: Frozen: The top half of a two-part image of Anna, Sven and…??? I assume from the slight bits seen of body parts it includes Elsa, Olaf and Kristoff.
  • 180: Frozen: The bottom right corner of a four-part image of Elsa, Olaf and… ??? I’ve no idea who or what is in the rest of the larger image.

Review:

The stickers are the standard size of 76x55mm. They’ve mostly gone with painted, original, artwork so there’s definitely value in the images themselves for Disney fans and all the printwork is relatively high quality on close inspection.

Apparently there are brand new “scannable stickers” but the packet I bought didn’t have one and there’s special gold, silver and 3D stickers to look out for. The Jasmine sticker above is an example of one of the golden foil stickers.

The price averaging out at £0.12 per sticker I’m not happy with to be honest considering the number of ‘section of a multi-part image’ stickers in the packet. I was fortunate enough with the ones I got that they have enough of a character on them you can just about get away with them being used alone though it’s clear they’re meant to be part of a larger image.

On the backing paper are various characters with Belle and Aurora being the standard image for the landscape stickers while the profile stickers having different characters. The cover of each pack has different characters – I got one with Mickey and Minnie Mouse but there were others with Olaf or other characters.

If you are a big fan of Disney these are definitely worth checking out. If you only like certain series it is very pot luck. The one major downside, aside from the low number of stickers for the price, is that you’ll most likely get parts of various multi-part images and that is very annoying as I’ve found with other series I’ve reviewed in the past.

Stickers in the packet I got:

  • 78: Miguel screaming (meeting someone in the Land of the Dead?)
  • 104: Sepia photo portrait of a man wearing glasses and a bowler hat. The central oval is the ‘main sticker’ to be put in the sticker album and the rest just framing.
  • 111: Land of the Dead: Reception clerk (skeleton)
  • 116: Land of the Dead: Imelda (skeleton) weilding her heeled boot threateningly.
  • 150: Land of the Dead: Ernsesto de la Cruz (skeleton) holding a glowing frament up to his chest. Again it’s a portrait with the outer part acting as a frame which would complete the image if not used with the sticker album which is a nice consideration.

Review:

The stickers are a non-standard size (86x49mm while the stard size is 76x55mm) which is interesting as Panini tend to keep to the stadard size for quick turn over of printing whatever is the popular series that year. The series is a mix of artwork, film stills and some promotional images.

Personally I prefer the artwork pieces as they are a bit more appealing to me as someone who grew up with 2D animation as if they’re an insight into what this film would have looked like if done in a more traditional style. The quality of the images is very high with details still being legible on close inspection. However at £0.12 per sticker I feel you are best off maybe investing in other products.

I seem to have been lucky and got a lot of ones which had good, stand alone, images of various characters. They’re good quality but price wise maybe it’s asking a bit too much for so few stickers. The backing of the stickers offers some added value for children to colour them in in whatever colours they like too I suppose. They’re good stickers but there are too few per pack so it’s not worth it unless you absolutely have to have some stickers of the film.

Review

I usually look for the good in these packets of stickers but this was a rip off. Only 5 stickers per pack is ridiculous for basic stickers no matter how good the quality of the print is (I would expect at least a shiny/hologram sticker included per pack to justify the price). The full body sticker of Anna was nice (maybe this one with a small amount of glitter is the ‘special sticker’ per pack often seen in other ranges?) and I like the illustration style but otherwise the stickers feature screen grabs and the generic snowflakes vector art ‘two for one’ sticker which you could easily get in bulk from other seasonal decorative sticker ranges.

I was either unfortunate with the single packet I got or there is an over reliance on multiple part images in the sticker album thus ensuring you constantly buy more to chase for the missing pieces. Just go get a pack of stickers you can see the contents of if you want something from Frozen. There’s not much to add… the packet was rubbish hence why it took me so long to get around to reviewing it months after I actually bought the pack when everyone has probably already forgotten it existed.
