Wall decals brighten up a play space

My three year old nephew lives in a city that averages 35 inches of rain a year. Needless to say, he spends lots of quality time indoors and it can be a challenge to find creative ways to keep him entertained. Ultimately, his room becomes the playground, so when Shutterfly launched wall decals, it was a no brainer that he needed one to brighten up his play space.

I have to say, it was the easiest slam dunk of a gift I have given him. I looked through some of my recent albums and found a photo from Halloween – this year it was all about Firemen.  I selected the photo and wall decal size and five clicks later I was done.

A few days later, he received the wall decal and it was a total hit! My Sister-in-law loved it because it took two minutes to put up, won’t damage the paint and can be easily moved and my nephew loved it because now he has a life size photo of himself over his bed!

    I love this idea and that they are easy to put on and won’t ruin paint. Such a fun gift and what child wouldn’t like a lifesize photo of him or herself! It would be kind of fun to blow up a decal for my sister’s 40th!!
    Thanks for the tip!!

    This looks like so much fun. I can see my 3-year-old princess in training loving seeing herself on the wall. This looks like so much fun

My name is Gretchen and I am a “Shutterfly” Monday through Friday, but when I am not working with our fantastic team here, I am playing in the streets of San Francisco, traveling, or spending time with my friends and family. I am a novice photographer (or as I like to say “photographer in training”) and love taking pictures of everything from fun times with friends at home to beautiful locations across the world. I love Shutterfly because I can find easy ways to do creative things with my photos.
