We recently did a cross-country move and rented a house until we get the lay of the land, so hand painting my sons’ bedrooms is not an option this year. I can’t just let them sleep with four white walls, though. Fortunately Australian Bosco Bear Removable Wall Art (US$45-60) has darling designs that go up easily and peel off without marking the walls one bit.We’re big fans of the 1.8 Transport set with cars, boats, trucks, buses, planes and even a blimp! We got creative with the clouds included in the set and made a puff of exhaust coming from an old pickup truck and used the water to make wake behind a big cabin cruiser. My 3-year-old son didn’t get the joke when I explained that these are Australian cars so they’d have to drive on the other side of his room, but he loves having stickers all over his walls!
Bosco Bear also offers sets with beautiful butterflies or flowers for a feminine touch, plus farm, undersea and outer space images. They also offer growth charts, themed letters and children’s names for even more design options.
Our only complaint is that a couple of the images were too detailed to lift off the backing and apply to the walls easily. A two-masted sailing ship had too many narrow bits and large shapes to lift simultaneously and had to be repaired before the little guy realized it had ripped.
This is a cute way to decorate when you don’t want to paint and they can be easily changed on a whim.
