Remember your childhood sticker books?

I wish I still had mine. I'm sure there were pages dedicated strictly to He-Man, and pages set aside for the rare "scratch and sniff" leaving your book smelling like some bizarre mix of fruit, glue and Smurfs (Smurfs, I'm guessing, smell like candy and shitaki mushrooms.) I'm positive that back then my favorites were on the pages overrun with Thundercats, Super Mario and those fat bubbly stickers that made your book thrice the thickness. Today, however, I think my favorites would be these little babies created by the events team over at L.L. Bean. Rumor has it they will be part of a goody bag for the kids who attend the "I Met a Moose in Maine One Day" book signing on July 5th in Freeport. If they were scratch and sniff, they would smell like fun I bet.

Awesome! What about the furry stickers? Remember those! How do I get some of these goodies without driving up to Maine!?!?

I DO remember those! Good call. I left "glow-in-the-dark" and "3-d" out as well. I wasn't some rich kid with fancy stuff. ha!

Anyway, I'll try to snag a few extra goodies when I'm there, but no promises. I know they are just for the event (as of right now), so they won't be sold. I'll do my best!

Hmmmm... scratch and sniff Moose stickers... I'm not sure about that. You ever smell a moose? I can see why they didn't go with that marketing strategy.

Wow COOL!! But I agree, scratch-n-sniff moose stickers...not such a good idea...however, furry moose stickers...now we're on to something......
