Curly Cue Product Review and Giveaway - US ONLY



I am always amazed by the graphics made into wall decals. I know they are one of the hottest trends right now and I really hope they stay one! It is so super easy to create works of art on your wall with peel and stick wall decals. I found that each company offers something a little bit different and unique. Curly Cue is different from other wall decal companies I have reviewed for in that many of their graphics are reusable. They can be removed and placed somewhere else and I love that! Every design they offer is original and totally unique!

Every step of my experience with Curly Cue has been phenomenal. They were super sweet when I picked out what I wanted to review, got it to me promptly and have been absolutely amazing with their level of patience. When we moved it took us awhile to get my kids' room arranged the way I wanted it, and even though these are reusable, I didn't want to put them up one day and have to take them down and replace a week later. So I waited, and I got super sick from this pregnancy and a million other excuses for why I am so late getting this up, but they have been amazing and haven't yelled at me once!

For review I decided on an item from their Kids section and another item from their Home Accents section. Both were used in my kids' room and both are absolutely amazing! Check them out:

Dandelion Wall Graphic



Tractors & Truck Wall Decal Set


We decided to put the trucks and tractors set on the wall on my son's bottom bunk bed to give him his own sanctuary. We also found this to be a perfect solution for a boy and girl who share a room. Their room is dominated by boy trucks, a train table and all sorts of other boy toys, so I wanted to place the dandelion decal on a big wall in their room for her. The room needed a girly touch and it is getting it in a very unique way.


I want to take a minute to talk about the logistics of the dandelion. It clearly states on the webpage for this decal that smooth walls are recommended due to the intricate nature of the design. We have definitely found this out the hard way! This decal is still not all the way on our wall because it is taking us forever to get up. We are super determined to get it on there, but because we have to smooth each "spike" of the dandelion out over grooved walls, our arms get tired and we need multiple breaks. I highly recommend this for someone with smooth walls. We didn't know what kind of walls we would end up with when we moved, so we are just going with the flow and doing our best to get it up on the wall. I do have pictures of the work in progress, as well as a picture of my wall so you can see what I am talking about. I am so in love with this decal and so stubborn that I probably would have bought it and put it on a non smooth wall anyways!

Here is a picture of our wall surface:



The dandelion is different from the trucks and tractors in that it isn't as thick. You peel the backing off and stick it up on the wall and smooth it out and then remove the clear top coating, leaving behind the decal. The trucks and tractors were easily just peeled off the backing and placed right on the wall, no top layer to bother with. These would be very easy to reuse. However, once we get the dandelion fully up, that baby isn't going anywhere!

The dandelion can be purchased for $39.99 and is available in the following colors:


The trucks and tractors set can be purchased for $14.99 and it comes in yellow or green:



My son could not stop giggling at his trucks and he feels so special that they are on his wall and that they match his bedding. The happiness from my four year old is worth any amount of money, but lucky for me, Curly Cue keeps it really affordable! I can't believe how much you get for only $14.99 and they are amazing quality. I love how thick they are and that we can take them off and move them if he gets sick of them where they are. These are definitely made with kids in mind!

Check out my personal pictures of our decals and the unfinished dandelion. I promise as soon as we get it all up there and smooth, I will post an updated picture(wordless Wednesday post!). I am already in love with it even though it isn't done! It is definitely worth the hassle of trying to apply it to non smooth surfaces!








Curly Cue offers all kinds of decals for home, kids' rooms, college, nurseries, holidays, etc. I am in love with every single design and I really want to purchase this for my newest baby's nursery:

Daisies With Stems Wall Decals

I think these would be perfect for my little Josie!
