I was very kindly gifted a few sets of Forever Clover swap cards with a matching album for Miss H to try out with her friends. She was super excited to get her own parcel in the post, but I had to sit down with and go through the whole swap card concept with her, as she wasn’t really sure what to do with them.
It was actually really lovely just getting to spend some one on one time with her. I explained to her that the cards were something that you had to collect and put inside the album. There are lots of different kinds of cards and it can take a little while to get them all, so she’d have to be patient. Each time you get a pack (of six swap cards) it’s a real surprise to find out which ones are inside. If you find a new card then you put it in the right place in your album to add to your collection. If you’ve already got that card in your album then you put it in your swap pile. This pile is called ‘swap cards’ because you have to get together with your friends and swap cards with each other until you get all the missing ones to fill your own album.
She got the concept pretty quickly and then spent ages going through all her cards deciding which ones she loved the most and which ones she thought her friends would like. I helped her organised them into categories and put them into her album. It was actually quite fun. She also couldn’t WAIT to get to school the next day to take her cards and spare albums to give to her best friends so that the swapping could begin.
Forever Clover swap cards are a lovely way for little girls to just have some good old fashioned fun. It’s makes them so happy and gives them something to do together with their friends. The cards are very girly and cover a wide range of wholesome topics. They are based on six best friends who are each very different and each have their own talents, be it sports or dance, music or acting. They really encourage confidence in young girls and of course there is lots of glitter and some very cute furry animals in there too.

Do you remember having a craze when you were little?? I remember having a sticker album and I LOVED collecting and swapping my stickers. The scratch and sniff ones and the glitter ones were always the most popular.
