Heartthrob or Heartache: How does your candy feel about Valentine's Day?

Not all of us have the kind of angst built up by Charlie Brown, pining for a Valentine from the Little Red Haired Girl. In the comic strips, the loveable sad sack spends his idle time staring at a mailbox that never gets filled. On the “Peanuts” TV special, his interaction with the candy store cashier is even more melodramatic: …

Extreme Halloween Decorating vs. Casual Celebratory Stickerating

Halloween is not a holiday of moderation. It’s a time when we encourage our kids to gorge themselves on too much candy and when we stuff our yards with fake gravestones, jack-o-lantern shrines and inflatable Frankensteins. That is unless you live in one of those condo complexes that regulate the colors of your mailbox. In the small French village of …

5 reasons why WallCandy decals are like the 2012 Summer Olympics

The pageantry is well under way! We all live busy lives, but if leisure time is overflowing in your world, there will have been 5,535 hours of Olympics television coverage from NBC (spread across NBC, NBC Sports Network, MSNBC, CNBC, Bravo, Telemundo, and NBCOlympics.com) by the end of the closing ceremonies.

Worry-Free Wallpaper: There's a new Robot in town

Do you fancy yourself to be a pop culture expert? I certainly do, but I could only identify a fraction of artist Robert Sargent‘s whimsical gathering of the World’s Greatest Robots.  Hey, where’s the Roomba vacuum cleaner? I immediately spotted C3PO and R2D2 from “Star Wars,” Bender the Futurama Robot, the Lost in Space Robot (named simply “Robot”), Wall-E and …

Who wants to be a princess? You'd be surprised…

We here at WallCandy are huge fans of the color pink.  Need convincing?  Just take a look at our French Bull Princess Wall Decal collection. Sure, there’s the hot pink princess dress, but if you zoom out on the scene, you’d see pink tree trunks, pink leaves, pink hair, a pink castle and plenty of pink flowers and clouds. It …

Nostalgic Fun: The playroom makes an unexpected cameo in the 2012 presidential race

Besides being fervently pro-America (you did know that all our removable wall stickers are made in the USA, right?), we wisely keep our nose out of politics in the WallCandy world. Why?  Well because, quite frankly, there are Democrat Princesses and Republican Princesses. To our knowledge, Cowboys and Owls have no staunch positions on national health care — at least …

Wall Sticker Royalty: What do Princesses do once the wedding is over?

So remember the hoopla surrounding the Royal Wedding?  You know, when we were bombarded with 24/7 coverage about what Kate and Pippa were wearing, what kind of china they’d be eating off, who made their shoes, and what kind of shampoo the princess used on her gorgeous locks? Much like our own weddings, the time zaps by in an instant.  …

Puppy Love: Dog Balloon Birthday Wall Decals and other Canine Curiosities

Having waited in line at numerous family festivals and kids fairs to spend 15 seconds with a balloon-twisting clown, I know the magnetism that animal balloons have for little children.  Heck, why bring age into it? I’m blown away by how a thin latex tube can instantly be transformed into giraffes, lions, party hats, etc. In case you missed it, …

Emmy Recap: Celebrating our own Modern Families!

You know that silly question of which child or grandchild you like the best? That’s how I felt watching the Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series category during last night’s Emmy Awards. Four actors from “Modern Family” were up for the honor — Ty Burrell (Phil) Ed O’Neill (Jay), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell) and Eric Stonestreet (Cameron) — as …
