Sissy Little Review
When I found out I had the opportunity to work with Sissy Little and review one of their decals, I immediately went to the transportation category. Why? Well for one I have two little boys, and two I never get anything for myself. When given the option between stuff for myself or for my boys, my boys always win hands downs. That's just what makes me happy I guess.
So anyway the transportation category is loaded with fire trucks, trains, boats and airplanes! Little Brother loves cars and I spot the most perfect decal, the Traffic Monogram Set. And oh my gosh does Little Brother's room have a wall that is perfect for this! And I love that although this is fun and cute and goes with cars, it is not too babyish. It can grow with his room as he grows. Perfect!
When I receive the decal I can't wait to get it up! Installation is really easy. It probably took me two hours. And that is because I was doing this by myself and wanted it to be perfect, as well as needing a ladder to get the traffic signal up. And making sure everything was straight and level took me a few tries. I have to say this decal had the most pieces of any I've done before.
First you want to make sure your wall is clean. Make sure no dust or grease is lingering which might effect the vinyl to not adhere properly. Then cut apart any of your decal pieces, as all colors that are the same are printed on one big sheet. Making them smaller will make your job much easier.
Then you want to position and tape your decal to the wall. You should still have your base paper and transfer tape together. Slowly peel away the base paper, and sometimes you will need to help the decal along to the transfer tape. Especially art or letter with really thin lines. Once the base paper is off your decal should only be on the transfer tape and still taped to your wall.
Slowly lower your vinyl decal down and use the special squeegee too that is provided to adhere the design to the wall. Keep squeegeeing the design until all the air bubbles have been removed.
Then slowly peel off the transfer tape from your design in a downward motion. Sometimes you will need to squeegee certain parts a bit more to make it adhere to the wall and not pull up on the tape.
Now if you only had one design element you would be done! Yay! However the Traffic Monogram set has 15 different pieces! Don't worry it's not as scary as it sounds and it is so worth it!
Just check out the finished product! Isn't it so cute! Little Brother is still in his crib, so I made sure I measured and calculated for his big boy bed and that the decals would all be showing and looking good as he grows! It's going to be perfect! (the room is small so it's hard to get a good picture)

The only thing I wish this decal set had was longer sign posts. I wouldn't have had to be so precise with the post and worry if the bed or toy box would cover up the fact they didn't go all the way to the baseboard.
If you have yet to try out vinyl wall art or it intimidates you in any way, you must try it. The worst that can happen is you don't like it and guess what? You can peel it right off! Yes! Vinyl wall art is only as permanent as you wish it to be! So if Little Brother all of a sudden becomes afraid of cars and road signs, no worries, no painting. Just peel them off and choose a new theme or nothing at all!
For smaller decals you can even put them on picture frames, wooden boards, chalkboards, bikes...it's endless! Make great holiday signs or gifts!
The Traffic Monogram Set was an affordable $69.99. However if you want to become a Sissy! (love that) You can like their Facebook Page and get 30% off your next order! Plus they also offer Free Shipping in the US!
