For you BBM Sticker fans out there you'll find a new pack in the BBM Shop today - this time featuring Shaun the Sheep. Now, I'm not sure how well known Shaun is globally, but if you've not come across him before he's the star or the British animated spin-off of Wallace and Gromit, which I'm sure is a little more popular.

We've only had BBM Stickers available for all, including iOS and Android, for a matter of days and we've already seen a couple of new sticker packs - first up was WWE which was free for a limited time and pretty sweet if you like that sort of thing.

We posted recently that the BBM Team were looking for Sticker pack ideas and it looks like the wheels are already in motion.

Although I'm not too keen on the Sticker pack prices - I will pay for the ones I really want. All I need is a KISS one. Hear me BlackBerry?

In Canada, I've seen Shawn on boxes for Serta chairs, which advertises it's comfort for using memory foam... Don't ask how I know this haha

So depending on the crowd, he could be a pretty popular fella, and hope they sell reaaaallly well!

That's a good point... I would have never noticed it's the same sheep dude, but now that you said it I def see the resemblance

Don't worry James, if Gene Simmons thinks he can make money off it, he'll put KISS on anything.

This fake Watsa doesn't know who KISS is..

Prem WatsApp

Simmons denied this acronym, but that's from someone walking around with a "The Demon" facepaint and once claiming he's "evil incarnate".

Whatever is the case, I don't think it's too far fetched. You're entitled to your opinion.

I still don't get stickers but BlackBerry is updating their shop at a rapid pace. Keep it up!

They should create a Prestige Pack and price it at $49 or $99. Stickers could be of diamonds or other luxury items, which people could use to show off their wealth. This would be popular among rich kids in Asia and would make lots of money for BlackBerry.

Interesting idea... find a nice big vanity/ego udder and milk it!

Prestige pack, only on Porsche Design (sound like posh design) edition BBs.

Great, Btw have a question to ask, I notice the stickers can only be use in multi person chat but not group chat, anyone have any idea when it will release for group chat as well? Thanks

Mr.Black.Berry

Groups needs an overhaul altogether. You can't do a whole lot in groups to begin with. Voice notes, glimpse, sending attachments from within the actual group thread like pics or music, stickers etc.

Agreed only a couple of good ones one could actually use in the everyday.

Prices aint worth it, but when something comes along worth while ill buy it for sure..

newbaskerville

Ain't worth it? Why, you don't have a dollar or two to spare on a few stickers? I know times are tough but damn.

Posted via CB10

SalMan50

Lol there's a person with a similar remark earlier, and I have to agree with the answer.

Unlike a $1.99 app, this $1.99 sticker pack gives you EXACTLY what you are looking for. I mean, they even let you see each sticker in its blown up version, so you see how it'll look in a convo

All in all, there's no surprises and you get what you get. So the $2 tag might not be worth it to you, but it's either you buy or not sort of product.

I'm fine with that

Just bought it!!! I support blackberry 100 percent!!! I will buy every single sticker pack out there!!! ;)

thatkidSimy

Blackberry needs more people like you!!!

Thatkidsimy's Z10 :)

mscloutier

I've bought them as well, doing my part to support BlackBerry. If only 20 million BBM users buy stickers regularly that would add up nicely. Hopefully this brings more users to BBM.

I know lol I love blackberry 10 every time I am in the bus or subway someone is always looking at my swiping and asking what is that? I tell them a blackberry they are like what?!?! Lol and they love the features lol

HaberNik

I did the same thing. Bought the pack just to show support to the idea. I would buy more if they are interesting. I think they will actually make money off this. Funny, but at first I thought that the stickers were one time use (like buying a stamp)! Seeing that they are not was a relief :)

Tapped and flicked from my BlackBerry Z30!

Am holding out for good updates and free great feature. So will support these updates with buying stickers.

newfie1974

Great job man.. Every BB fan should buy at least one pack to support BB. I'm going to do that right now.

Mr Z10

We need more BlackBerry fans like you

I want BB to be around for the long run. And I want to be a part of the success.

I have purchased all sticker packs so far, I not happy with the selection but I want to support BlackBerry as much as possible.

I cut back on eating out and all is well!

JimmyMezaR

The packs are too expensive. For that price there are some apps that give you more stickers. The packs should contain more stickers for that price.

BlackBerry till the end

kidbagel

I wonder if the stickers are priced at a premium because they a "new releases". Perhaps the current packs will get cheaper, as newer packs become available.

What is the purpose of buying stickers if the people that I sent it to them can't see them!!!! Unless they also pay and download them, Something wrong or not worth it

Posted via CB10

arfin

They don't have to pay for then to see them, they just need to update bbm

Posted via CB10

slickjmp

I have the same issue. I bought Shaun of the sheep and sent it to a BlackBerry user in the US, it said sticker received but she couldn't see it. She then selected it and it wanted 2$ from her

Posted via CB10

Prem WatsApp

No, concept not understood properly. Need to update BBM to latest version, not buy the sticker pack again to see them.

If course you can purchase them if you click on it...

HaberNik

This needs to be better conveyed. When the sticker sent notice comes in to a BBM that needs updating, it should say please update bbm to see stickers. This was the second comment I have seen thinking that had to buy the sticker to see it.

Even if they update the bbm it's the same thing, stickers not showing

slickjmp

Exactly, the person i sent a shaun sticker to has been able to send and receive wwe and blackberry stickers.

TripNFry

i'm on the latest BBM, my wife sent me the shaun stickers, I couldn't see them, was redirected to buy them. I support BB, so I went ahead and bought them, now not only can I not see them when she sends them, I can't see them in the stream when I send them, even though they show up fine to pick which ones to send.

Yeah KISS one wud be good. To liven the mood of my wife wen I'm late for home

I don't understand, 'not keen on the prices'? I thought the prices were excellent.

Can't forget that they would be paying royalties for the artists.

Wallace and Gromit would be perfect. I'd drop a couple bucks on that for sure.

chaibon

I think that this is a winner. The price tag for stickers is on the steep side, especially so if they can't be carried over across the platform. Slash it to 0.99 will have more buyers. Right now BBM ' priority is gaining more users, and make the stickers more popular. Cashing in can come later.

Posted via CB10

Nate650

Agree, 99 cents is the sweet spot.

Meh. Consider the current price the price of a cup of coffee.

I bought these to do my part in supporting the company. :)

I would pay for professional sports league sticker packs. i.e NHL, NBA, NFL, CFL, MLB, and EPL.
