Reusable sticker books

Eco nature and animal sticker scenes and alternatives.

Reusable stickers are environmentally and financially better than single use stickers, but do not last forever- especially in our house.  Once carpet fluff/ food/ dribble gets to them they lose stickiness or travel stuck to my feet.  Where the stickers are not paper it is possible to wash them and regain the stick.  One benefit is that they are sometimes a bit thicker than normal stickers, and so easier to pick up.

Baby Vegan currently currently gets through one animal themed Usborne Sticker book a week. Baby Vegan's favourite nature sticker books comprise friendly, smiley faced animal stickers, and pages with background scenes of their environment to stick the animals onto. You do not need to put the sticker in a particular place, just find the right (or wrong) habitat. (Edit: now aged 2, Toddler Vegan prefers there to be a right place to put the sticker). When sticking, Baby Vegan often likes to arrange creatures into interspecies cuddle parties. The animals sometimes bounce around or eat bits of our dinner before settling on the page, or carpet.

I was initially pleased to see Baby Vegan learn concentration and fine motor skills, while studying environmental science (like me!) but then realised sticker books are not recyclableSince it is a bit embarrassing to have an eco website which promotes single use plastic, I set out to find an alternative. I am now the world's leading authority on stickers. I made myself this shopping list of titles which show animals in their natural habitat.  We avoid sticker books with: farms, zoos, aquariums and pets for vegan reasons. For green reasons, I've found out about reusable, sustainably sourced stickers, and magnetic and felt sticker alternatives.  We also avoid books about cars.

Baby has interests in: ducks, stickers, and new vocabulary.  Therefore, I set out on a mission to combine these hobbies; in order to introduce the correct terminology for fresh water bird species from a young age. I'm still uncertain how to pronounce 'pochard'.

I bought a sticker for each of the birds found in Clissold Park from Red Bubble (made from plastic, carbon offsetting for delivery only). They remained reusable for a few days. We have been sticking these onto: household appliances, ourselves, and a map of the park.​

Here is where to find the stickers:

Cosmic Esoteric: Male Mallard, Team Coot Uniform, Rock dove love, Swans in the lake, Bird in flight stickers.  I'm a regular customer at Cosmic Esoteric canal shop, having also acquired a wedding dress and some children's bird t-shirts. The designer lives on the canal and is neighbours with the ducks.  Follow her to hear about floating and cyber markets.

Pochard duck sticker.  Mrs Foxy: Little Grebe sticker. Jessamy83: Egyptian Geese sticker. elaine pearson: Canada Goose sticker.  David Knowles (Owl Occasions): Greylag Goose sticker.  Robert Carr: Moorhen sticker.​

The park map was made by Clissold Park Users Group, and can be purchased from the park cafe. It tells you the names of some birds, and has a picture of the lakes and the river, which we lay the ducks out onto. I baby-proofed it with sticky tape.

Pop Out, Felt and Activity Books

Fuzzy felt sticker picture boards. Nature and animal felt play sets and books.  

I bought some plain Fuzzy Felt shapes on eBay, and Toddler Vegan has found any imaginative uses for them, such as cooking soup for the dinosaurs, and using them as soil for a digger (ladle) to pick up.

Blogger 'doing my eco best' muses that fuzzy felt may be the oldest and most eco-friendly toy. They found out that fuzzy felt is made from synthetic fibre (oil), and that a box they bought in a charity shop was made in 1967. Since it lasts so well, fuzzy felt has the potential to be recycled by passing it down. It seems possible to get rolls of felt which are made from: recycled plastic, cork or bamboo.  However, beware!  Some felt on Etsy is made from sheep's wool.

Felt is popular among Steiner and Montessori circles as it is tactile and can be used imaginatively, again and again.
