My Monster Review: I really like dressing the boys in similar items. I think the technical term for it is twinning. Which is why I thought it could be a lot of fun for Monkey to design their own matching t-shirt with My Monster. Its a really clever idea and I have not come across anything like it elsewhere. Monkey was very excited by the prospect.

Everything you need arrives in a rather apply decorated box. Which Monkey has already asked if he could colour in. In the box you get instructions, a tee, baking paper and all the stickers you need to create your monster. I was impressed by just how many different monsters we could have created. There was a lot more body part stickers than I imagined. In fact each set includes forty seven different stickers. You get 3 x different body stickers, 6 x pairs of leg and arm stickers, 4 x mouth stickers, 8 x eye stickers, 19 x accessory stickers and a test sticker for testing.

Monkey set about designing his t-shirt. I gave him complete free reign to let his imagination take over. I really liked the additional elements as well as the monster parts.

The supplied instructions are really easy to follow. Once you have decided on your design you peel off the backing part of the cellophane leaving the front part in place. The baking paper is put over the top before ironing the sticker on at the highest heat. Afterwards I peeled off the remaining cellophane carefully. You do need to be careful which order you do the stickers in. The instructions suggest starting with the monsters body which is why we did and it worked fine.

I think Monkey did a really good job of deciding which parts to use and where. The kit was very simple to use and the materials good quality. We received an age 6 and an age 2 t-shirts which were true to size. They haven’t been through the wash yet but the instructions say to wash as normal. If the stickers crease in the washing process all you need to do is to run an iron over them.

You get the option of choosing a jumper or a t-shirt and effectively build your own set. With the opportunity to add in additional jumpers and t-shirts. Prices vary depending on the option you choose, but to get a get like ours with two t-shirts costs $48.90. Sizes range from 2A to 12A with the option to pick from white, grey or black t-shirts and black or grey jumpers.

    Such a brilliant idea for kids. Wouldn’t mind having a go myself!

  4. My little one is very creative and I think this would be really cool to try. I love coming to your blog because I always stumble across lots of cool activities that I have never seen before. I guess that’s the purpose of the blog, but still. Hehe

  5. This is a really clever idea. It’s one of those “why didn’t I think of that?!” ideas. My daughter would absolutely love it.

  6. Almost certainly the perfect tee-shirt. Thanks so much for the useful review.

    i really love the idea of this, not seen anything like this before.

    What a great idea. Perfect for my great-niece who will refuse to wear something if she doesn’t like it. Not bad for a nearly 7-year-old. It’s easier to get her to choose her own clothes (luckily most of the time it’s suitable for whatever we are doing).

  12. What an amazing idea and something I have never seen before, my 3 boys would love this and how it would spark the imagination. Fantastic idea guys

  14. Fiona jk42 Reply

    My granddaughter loves monsters and aliens so this would be perfect for her

  15. This looks fun and creative too! I wonder if our boys would fold their clothes if they had designed them themselves!

  16. Samantha Butler Reply

  21. Laura Avery Reply

    These sound great fun..they could expand and do all sorts but then the name would change I guess! My son would love this.

  22. sharon stanley Reply

    What a lovely idea, a T shirt that the kids make themselves. Also would serve as a great keepsake framed when they grow out of it.

  23. Azariah hardy Reply

    My little brother would absolutely love this, he’s a little monster himself
