One of the things Risiel is REALLY into right now is Paw Patrol!
So when I saw that 3D Light FX offered Paw Patrol lights, I had to look into them!
I was so excited when they were willing to send Risi not just one, but two of their Paw Patrol line! They currently offer Rubble, Chase and Skye, and we were sent Chase and Skye! I gave Risi Skye at her birthday party we had at Chuck E Cheese with just the kids, and gave her Chase at the party at my moms house where we celebrated both Risiel and my mom’s birthdays (Moms is Nov 4 and Risiel Nov 5!)
I wish I could have gotten decent pictures of them up in her room, but.. we had a problem with the sticker. See, in previous places we’ve lived I’ve used wall stickers without a single problem. We’ve been here 3 1/2 years now and I’ve never tried anything like that up in Risiel’s room. Other rooms, no problem, but Risiel’s room? I didn’t give it a second thought. Sadly, it seems like they used cheaper paint in her room. Because when I put up Skype the included sticker from 3D Light FX basically peeled the paint off the wall and the sticker came right along with it. Just a large chunk… Oh gods…
Well, I’ll deal with repainting it after consulting the landlord. I’m so glad he doesn’t do more than just glance around on a yearly basis. Otherwise.. I don’t even know what I’d do.
So, I had told Aussie what had happened when I put up the first one, and told him to leave handling the sticker to me.
So what did he do…?
Yep, just went and took the sticker and attempted to hang up Chase with.. just the sticker. Despite the screws and the packaging and.. Ugh. So sadly the wall has two ruined spots, and he said he couldn’t hang it up. It ended up being a bit of a total disaster and I was beyond annoyed that yet again my husband failed to listen to me even though I told him multiple times about the issue with the sticker and the paint on her bedroom walls.
If you’re in a rental I would recommend that you try a smaller wall sticker someplace small to see if the paint can handle it. Or if you’re just afraid that it wont handle it, skip the sticker all together and just use thumbtacks (if you’re not allowed screws) to hang these up. Alternatively these would be great set on top of a shelf leaning up against the wall. But you’re cautioned not to let your kiddos touch them. Right now, I just have them hung up with push pins/tacks because I don’t have something strong enough to put screws into the wall. I’m allowed to screw into the wall, but I’d have to leave them there. I’m considering instead just installing a shelf over the unfortunately paint damaged part of the wall, and then we’ll work out the details of painting with the landlord later. *sigh*
These lights are so loved by Risi though. So if you are confident your paint isn’t cheap as hell then I would say go for it with the stickers. I’d go for it in my room, because the paint in most of them seems better than Risiel’s. Which is just.. beyond strange. I think someone did just do a crappy cover up of a previous paint job years ago and just… no one cared?
I know this post sounds very negative, but I just needed to put up the warning really. I do love the 3D Light FX we got for Risiel. I know that Lisi is looking at a couple and I would not hesitate to use them again in the future. Just, watch out with your paint man. XD
I would totally get Deadpool for my room. Unless they did Sailormoon or Dragonball Z characters. In which case I’d have Sailor Mercury and Vegeta. XD How about it 3D Light FX’s folks? Can we get some anime themed lights?
