I have heard about Melisa and Doug’s Make-A-Face Sticker Pad from a neighbor who gave one for her daughter. I decided to buy one online for my daughter as well and she if she would like it.
This large sticker book, measure 14 x 11 inches, comes with 250 stickers of different facial parts and fashionable accessories. Each page features a large female head with a blank face; all my daughter has to do is to decorate each face with eyes, eyebrows, lips, and jewelry of her choosing. It aims to teach her facial recognition, learning where our eyes and other facial parts should be located, as well as artistic expression and fine motor skills.
The Make-A-Face Sticker Pad did not disappoint. Of course, her first faces look like abstract art. The eyes are not even, so are the eyebrows, and lips are placed on the ears instead of earrings. With proper teaching, she got the hang of it. Each head is of different skin tone, so there are no problems there regarding concerns of an all-fair-skinned sticker book.
My son likes to place sitckers on the faces as well and I decided to give a sticker book of his own, the Make-A-Face Crazy Characters Sticker Pad. Although, I hope they would come up with a gender-neutral Make-A-Face Sticker Pad, with both male and female faces, perhaps even robots and animals.
