4.0 out of 5 stars These ARE just a set of stickers 18 Mar. 2012
By Seren Ade HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
If you're reading this because you're looking for a case, this is the wrong product for you. If you're reading this because you're looking for a decoration for your Kindle that will also help to protect it from fine scratches, then this is a well-made, well-fitting product.

IMO, it's really unfortunate that 'skin' is used to describe both decals and some forms of close-fitting cases for electronics goods, because this creates real confusion. Which isn't diminished by descriptions of vinyl decals as providing some protection for your device.

To do the skins justice, they DO provide a small amount of protection for your Kindle but only from minor cosmetic damage to the outside (NOT including the screen). The skins are narrow enough that they do not affect the Kindle's ability to fit inside a case - even the form-fitting Amazon leather covers.

The Kindle 4 decals come in several parts, so there are no covered over joins on the device surface where the stickers would be vulnerable to damage. Most of the stickers are fairly easy to apply - as long as you go slowly and carefully, they transfer easily and air bubbles are not hard to avoid/smooth out. I found trickiest of the pieces to be the one for the front of the Kindle - where, even with the button cutouts to help, it took me a bit of fiddling to ensure that it was evenly spaced. Thanks to the good quality of the thick vinyl, repositioning is easy: leaves no residue and can be done repeatedly without affecting sticking power. I've got the library set on my Kindle, and my mum asked me to get this set for hers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pretty and easy to apply 16 July 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this as a present for my daughter, so she gets a kindle ready-personalised. The product is, as others have said, a set of stickers that fit very well to your kindle of choice. Having read the reviews here, I knew exactly why was getting it - decoration and so we don't get kindle's mixed up. I guess it is expensive, but I had a quick look round and couldn't find anything cheaper. It stuck on surprisingly easily - I was dreading it a bit, but it went well, and the stickers do give the kindle a great look.

3.0 out of 5 stars HUH. 31 Jan. 2012
For what you get, It is way too expensive for what is basically a set of stickers! Not what I expected at all, HOWEVER , It does give the kindle a very pretty look, though I doubt it does much in way of protection. It is only really very aesthetically pleasing. I like the way my kindle looks with the blossom trees.

5.0 out of 5 stars transforms a dull grey gadget 20 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase
I looked into all the cases when I was buying the kindle and wasn't inspired by any of them! And the more I watched people reading kindles on the tube the more I realised they're just like a mobile phone and I've never put mine in a protective case. The skin is the perfect way of transforming your kindle into something you'd actually want to pick up without spending a fortune and adding bulk and weight by putting it in a case. Very easy to apply, looks glam and everyone wants to know where it's from!

4.0 out of 5 stars Decoration 10 April 2013
By Nicole

I love this as a decoration for my Kindle, it makes it look far better than the boring grey that the kindle comes in! I would recommend for people to buy a sleeve for their kindle at the same time as making this purchase .

5.0 out of 5 stars nice feel to it. 19 Feb. 2013
By Sekrabs
Verified Purchase
This is the second 'skin' I have bought, (sadly loosing the first kindle) they are surprisingly easy to fit on. The choice this time was much less than when I chose my first, I wanted the same skin as last time, but this is just as pretty. I bought it to differentiate at a glance from my husbands kindle. Recently, he used mine to read something, and he said the kindle felt less slippery and nicer to feel than the uncovered one. So we have ordered another one for him! My only request would be that a few more 'masculine' design patterns were available.
