Two new sticker packs are now appearing in the BBM shop. This time around Disney joins the fun by offering up a pretty sweet Toy Story pack and in case that's not enough for you, BlackBerry has added a BBM Characters pack. The Toy Story pack is priced at the usual $1.99 while the BBM Characters pack is priced at $.99.

We're not sure what regions have them but I suppose it really doesn't matter. I'm sure you're all aware of the trick to getting them even if they're not available in your region right? Just ask someone who has them to send one to you and it they will become available for you to purchase as well. The Toy Story pack is a must-have for me. What about you all? Grabbing or passing?

Disney brings Toy Story stickers to BBM, while BlackBerry offers up new BBM Characters pack

Okay......I have to say it's a bit ironic that you made a comment about these stickers and your signature speaks of tools and not toys.
Just what is a tool regarding these stickers. Lol

Disney also has an official BBM Channel but only available in USA, some Disney games are in BB World... John Chen has something to do with Disney I guess (he was director of Disney in 2004 as it states in Wikipedia)

I hope that these sticker packs are making an easy profit for BlackBerry, and hopefully lots of it!

Via The BlackBerry Z10 Experience.

Hopefully. But I reckon the initial few stickers which BlackBerry designs should be free. To get user addicted to them. Not charge them on the 2nd set the release.

How do you remove old sticker packs you don't want anymore? I don't think I will use the WWE ones and they are always listed first.

They should have not released the toy story pack! Those guys at Disney are too cruel: before putting it on sale they already know that this pack will steal our heart!!! When I was younger my week's evenings were like: Monday Toystory,Tuesday Space Jam,Wednesday Star Wars,Thursday Toy Story, Friday Space Jam, Saturday Star Wars and Sunday The Lion King..

The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.

Very cool, thanks Bla1ze.

Nothing yet for us grown men (well those that don't carry Nintendo DS everywhere we go).

I think TheRock1975 will make his own grown man sticker pack.

Some sort of bug/error. If you tap on the second one to see full size, it's actually the cowboy.

Posted via CB10

Do we have the ability to purchase stickers for someone else? This would be a nice feature.

Posted via CB10

I second that. Same as buying an app as gift for someone else. I used to be able to do that with BBOS when someone sent me a gift request. I then could accept or decline. Next update of BBM and BlackBerry World, perhaps.

Price is better. However, repeating stickers makes me feel like i'm being jipped. Hesitating on the BBM pack because of that, but seriously considering getting the Disney one.

Really? I don't think the $2 price tag on designer stickers is that bad, but BBM emoticons stickers should be free.

Posted via CB10

Even the BlackBerry ones are not free? I know its not expensive. But a lot of people still won't buy them. While other apps like Viber, Line, WeChat have 100s of free stickers, and BlackBerry thinks the other way is better. Lets wait and see.

I bought 6 dollars worth of these. And switched phones to my Z. When I went back to the Q they were all gone! :( I'm not buying anymore!

Posted via CB10

Just go I to the BBM Store and then click the three dots on the bottom right, you'll see a restore button. Tap that button and all your purchased stickers should return.

Posted via CB10

Thank you!!!!!

I had been extremely torqued that I had last my stickers when I switched between my Zs. Thanks to you, now I have them back!!!

Now I don't have any excuses to not buy more. ;)

Posted via CB10

Awesome that Disney is in. More free BlackBerry stickers would be welcome too to gain momentum and win competition from Viber and Line.

I just bought the bbm new stickers. Its quite expensive for just few stickers.

I just want to say it's a bit sad the pricing on these stickers is so aggressive, $2 for 20 stickers is miserly. Many stickerpacks available outside of bbm cost the same for 100 stickers. Blackberry should be encouraging th use of stickers, and slapping a steep price on them will not encourage usage.

Posted via CB10

Yeah, star wars stickers would be quite timely actually !

They also really need to cash in on the World Cup somehow, even if it's just large flag stickers.

Posted via CB10

This is going to be my first sticker pack I'm going to buy!

If Disney rolls out the Princess packs...it's a wrap!

For stickers. I'm not paying for stickers from BlackBerry. it's understandable if third party stickers are paid but IMO, not from BlackBerry, at least not the standard ones. The competition does them for free too, unless there's something I'm missing that's the way it should be. No reason to charge for something that can and should be free. Anti consumer and greedy.

Posted via CB10

Its not expensive. But it is good to have a few free pack to convince users to try and buy. The free one available now is not a sticker, its just a scaled up version of few smileys. Most of my friends are reluctant to buy stickers.These stickers are nice it has some branding but we need more emotions in stickers, that is something BBM stickers are lacking.

The need sports sticker... English Premier League alone would be huge everywhere, especially in countries where BBM is still relevant!

Posted via CB10

Yeah they should definitely get sports stickers, like NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, Fifa, etc and ESPECIALLY college sports. College sports fans, especially football, are just absolutely crazy about their teams/schools and will buy anything bearing that teams logo!

Posted via CB10

Should they be league or team specific? With all the complaining on here about paying $2 for stickers would people buy a league pack just to access the sticker for their team?

Posted via CB10

Oh how fun!

Any stickers BlackBerry actually releases should be free tho. We should have as many stickers as there are emoticons and they should be free. Not many people will be interested in buying imo

Posted via CB10

Actually, if you read the comments, people are buying them. I bought a pack for my wife. However, I really think BlackBerry should also offer free packs, especially if they're basic BlackBerry emoticons. Did they HAVE to charge for those, albeit at a reduced price?

Yeah that's what I'm saying. The ones BlackBerry put out should be free since they're basically identical to the emoticons. Some have and will buy, but most may not see the point. But then again, you never know. BlackBerry customers don't seem to mind to pay for some add ons I guess.

Posted via CB10

Yeah and they should offer BES services for free for people with BlackBerry phones, and BB10 phones should be free for anyone who had a BBOS phone and/or Playbook.

And for Phase 2 they should give away everything for free to iOS and Android users.

I think we have found the answers to all BlackBerry's problems. They just need to give away everything for free to gain market share, who needs $ and profits anyways. I am appalled they have tried to monetize any of their offerings.

Posted via CB10

Na I'll pass. Maybe if they were free but I have no use for stickers. Seriously what's the point of stickers? Half my BBM friends still on legacy devices. Even my bb10 friends don't care for stickers

Posted via CB10

Kinda bummed BlackBerry decided to charge for the BBM Characters pack. This is exactly the kind of sticker pack that should be free.

BBM Channel: The Group Ride C00055B7C

I swear BlackBerry puts a price one everything Wat would be free on android has a price on BlackBerry stickers should be free

Posted via CB10

What no LEGO?!!

Marvel Superheroes, anyone?

Loony tunes? Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck etc..

NFL for the new season.

Posted via CB10

Seriously, this is one decision that's very upsetting. How do they expect these to take off when they charge for everything

Posted via CB10

Hmmm...I only use the hippie emoji, otherwise I'd buy the BBM pack without hesitation.

Posted via CB10 on Z10

I do not like stickers so far. Maybe my eyes are not good enough, but for the most part the expressions are not clear enough. I find emoticons better. Is this all the Bbm shop will have? Seems to me it should also open shop blackberry?

Posted via CB10

Stickers are several times larger. Some of them are naff, but I don't agree if you are comparing BBM emoticons and BBM stickers.

Posted via CB10

Honestly I'm don't like and not impressed with any of the stickers for BBM now.. its worst than emoticons I would say... all stickers doesn't give a very good direct expressions to bring out the emotions... I would say Line's stickers much better...

 BB FANS via Q10 

Since Disney has stickers now. I would think Star Wars and Marvel sticker pack will eventually come. I myself would like to see Square Enix and Nintendo.

Posted via CB10

Why charge for BBM characters? Did anyone even buy them? Seems ridiculous to me to pay for something that you basically already have, at least give us all the smileys if your going to rip off your customers.

The stickers are far to expensive nobody I know uses them focus should be spent on developing OS etc etc not stickers that a child would use.....pointless!!

Posted via CB10

This is huge, and I guess just the start of it.

I assume there will be more stickers in the new $0.99 tier

Zzzzwiped from a Zedevice....

True! Actually I find it outrageous that Blackberry is charging for emoticons that are available in the standard BBM?!?! So they increase them to sticker size and want you to pay for that?!? And this on top of the numerous complaints/requests that they make normal emoticons a bit larger...Yet another dumb move by the marketing folks...

Leaves such a bad taste I can't get over it. They make it hard the ant to support BlackBerry with a greedy play this.

Posted via CB10

It leaves a bad taste that people like you expect everything for free. Do you work for free? Will you come clean my house for free? They already provide BBM for free, Channels for free, they gave a sticker pack for free.

Millions of people work for free, it's a called a volunteer.
So these large emoticons that are already available in the free BBM take what, an hour to program? I'm just guessing btw, but I imagine it doesn't take very long. Definitely not as long as the thousands of apps available in BlackBerry World for $0.99! The price isn't justified for what you get.

If they priced them at $0.25 they would probably make more money and it would help promote Stickers. IMO they should be free and should include all the BBM emoticons.

I did some free work when selling BBM to skeptical Android users who have since bought several sticker packs. I went BlackBerry 10 when there was very little hope for the future. It would be great to have promotional packs for more IOS and Android users to get on board and also some kind of incentive to stay / get on BlackBerry 10. There's been a lot of loyalty, a thank you sticker pack exclusive to BB10 wouldn't hurt.

MOAR!

Really could expand this. Looking for my faves, such as, "You're mocking me, aren't you?"

Posted via CB10

Picked up both packs. Very cool that the BBM ones have reduced pricing. I'm really interested to hear how sales of the sticker packs have been going and if it's having a meaningful impact on revenues.

Posted while peeking and flowing on my incredible BBQ10! 

Never really seen the point in stickers, but the Toy Story ones, i like. With the words on them, each can be used to convey a clear thought/feeling on their own. If all sticker packs were like this, they would be worth it.

Posted via CB10

Weird...the new bbm pack was there this morning but now it's gone. the toy story one is still there though...

Posted via CB10

So the new BBM Characters Pack is gone now? I don't see it listed anymore? Perhaps it was pulled on account of the double clown sticker?

Posted via CB10

I'm in Las Vegas, NV. I just purchased the Toy Story Pack, sadly, I don't have the new BBM pack available! hopefully soon

Just noticed today that bbm characters were gone in the shop? Did they pulled it out to make it free? Lol :D

Posted via CB10

I need somebody who can send me the new BBM sticker pack, so I can download it, because it doesn't appear on my store, BBpin: 2B6C3DEF
Thanks
