The stickers have a sparkle texture and depict numerals, letters, smiley faces, and various other designs.

Item #458810, “Sticker Travel Activities” book, consists of a 4-1/2” x 6” booklet that, when its staples are removed, can be used to solve 3 puzzles and play 2 games (tic-tac-toe and bingo) while in transit. The puzzles involve rearranging various stickers to correctly match mismatched or incomplete objects.

Item #458820, “Sticker Pond Activity” book, is a toy set that consists of a 4-1/2” x 6” booklet that, when its staples are removed and the booklet flattened, reveals a pond scene.
