Brief Answer:
They are harmless.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Hi

I can understand your concern for the safety of the "decorative radium stickers".
These stickers do not contain radium as such, they contain an ordinary flourescent XXXXXXX which glows in the dark. Hence, they are harmless and nothing to worry about their safety during pregnancy.
Hope this answers your query.

Best wishes.
