      I wouldn't recommend this product

      In the Night garden is a very popular cbeebies TV show, babies, toddlers and pre-schools can't seem to get enough of the show. My son is a huge fan so when I decided to redecorate his bedroom In the night garden seemed an obvious theme. Off I trotted to B&Q and found exactly what I was looking for. A colourful and bright border full of In the Night Garden Characters and designs. Its a self adhesive Official licensed product, Height 23.6cm, Length 5m and suppose to be perfect for painted walls Of course as it was In the night garden it was the most expensive border at £9.99. I hoped as his room was only small I might just get away with buying one and thankfully I did.

      The border features all the characters including Iggle piggle Upsy daisy, Makka Pakka, Tombliboos, Pontipines , Haahoos, Ninky Nonk, Pinky Ponk. The character are on the ground which is green with trees around them and the sky is the back ground which is blue. It will certainly appeal to little Night garden fans. Plus because of all the colours it will fit in with a wide range of colour schemes. I did my sons room a pale blue but think it would look fab on lime green walls. I would suggest applying it is a two people job if possible to ensure its level, sadly I had to struggle alone and it was a bit of struggle. As its quite a wide boarder it is quite difficult to handle when you remove the backing. It took me a few attempts to get it just right. I think this has impacted on it stickiness as it started to peel away from the walls only days after applying. As it was coming away my son managed to make it far worse and removed a chunk of border I was very unimpressed with him and he then spent time on the naughty step. I couldn't live with the border looking like that nor could live with forking out another £9.99 for a replacement so I popped into my local Wilkinson and grab a sample piece long enough to cover the damaged area. This replacement piece has also started coming away from the wall so I have now come to the conclusion the self adhesive is quite frankly rubbish and doesn't do the job its meant too.

      I'm going to give the boarder two stars as the border itself does look nice its just rubbish at sticking to the wall. I think if you've got a little Night garden fan your likely to get pestered into buying this product whether you want to or not. Another thing to remember is they seem to grow out of programmes so quickly too my son is crazy about power-ranger at the moment and I now regret buying this border altogether now I'll be taking it down soon.
