On a recent trip to Lidl the man at the checkout asked us if we were collecting Stikeez. We had no idea what they were so in the absence of any real knowledge said sure. We had spent rather a lot of money and as a result he passed over a large handful of tiny packages and we headed home. Once the shopping was away we cracked open one of the little packs to discover that they are part of collectible set of little figurines to mark the European Football cup (Euro2016) that is set to start in Paris later this month and they called Stikeez because they have little suction cups on the bottom so you can stick them to glass, metal etc. I offered them to my kids but they seemed uninterested and so I set them on the side planning on throwing them out later that day. However the next thing I know a certain someone with a wicked glint in his eye informed me that for now, he was keeping them because he had a photography idea he wanted to try.
Yesterday morning he set up his scene and then summoned me to take up my position. I duly did as I was asked and once he had everything in place I clicked the button on the remote control while he moved and placed the toys. The result…. well see for yourselves but I think his idea turned out to be rather fabulous!
It’s off to work we go
We keep on singing all day long
