A couple of months ago I introduced Ben and his best mate Finley to the new Force Attax Extra Topps Trading Cards. Although Finley was already a keen collector of Match Attax cards, Ben hadn’t collected anything like this before and we spent some time taking about how the collection would work and swapping duplicate cards.
Both boys were immediately excited by the special shiny cards or the ones which stand up – getting a special card in your pack is always a great moment!
The boys have worked hard over the last two months to earn extra packs and complete their collections and have both done really well. What they do need to do however is spend a little time going through their duplicate cards and swapping them to fill the gaps – that said I think Ben quite likes having multiples of the same card, especially if’it’s a character he particularly likes!
f course with the boys building their Force Attax Extra collections, the girls want to get in on the game as well! Conveniently Topps have a great range of Shopkins Trading Cards products which meant Chloe and Erin could also start to collect and swap cards together.
Now neither Erin or Chloe know a lot about Shopkins (and in fact neither do their mums!) but that doesn’t stop them being super excited about their collections, particularly the shiny, sparkly cards – who wouldn’t be excited by those! The cards feature the adorable, collectable characters from Shopville and can be used to play a game with the mat included in the starter park. At the moment, the girls aren’t bothered by playing the game and just want to collect and compare their cards!
At just £1 for a packet of cards (available in Martins, McColls, One Stop, Asda, WHSmith, Tesco and Sainsburys) they make for a great treat or incentive which won’t break the bank! (They promise of more Force Attax Extra or Shopkins cards is certainly getting me lots of jobs done around the house)
