My daughter (4) adores sticker books and has done since she was old enough to work out how to peel and stick. We've tried lots of stickers books but these Usborne Dolly Dressing books are absolutely the cream of the crop.
This book is heavily focused on a Ballerina theme and includes ballerina dolls at the studio, costume fitting, in make-up and doing popular ballets such as The Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. Some themes are single page spreads and some are double-page spreads which are large because the book is slightly bigger than an A4 sheet.
Each theme has its own sticker section - lovely that the stickers are not all just jumbled up, they are actually laid out so you can see which pages the stickers relate to. There are tons of beautiful stickers for each section and not just clothes and shoes either. You also get accessories to dress up rooms too which makes it even more exciting. Your child is free to put the stickers anywhere they like for each section which makes it even more inventive and imaginative. We love spending quality mum and daughter time doing these sticker pages together.
In addition to the ballerina pages, there are also many pages of themed dolls including, Time for Bed, Best Friends, Bridesmaids, Disco Dolls, Roller Skating, On the Beach and more. The variety is awesome.
I cannot see how anyone can be disappointed with these books. I would happily pay double the price to get hold of them because my daughter gets hours and hours of fun from each one and it is something we enjoy doing together.
The stickers do peel off if a mistake is made and can be pressed down again with no issues. Some of the stickers (like shoes) can be small and fiddly for my 4 year old as I would expect but an older child could do this on their own.
I really and truly highly recommend that you try this for a child who loves pretty stickers and being creative. They make wonderful gifts too. Simply gorgeous.

I chose this sticker book as I have purchased others in this range and my gran daughter loves them. The books are very colourful, lovely clothes for the characters and goof for occupying time on a wet afternoon. We can use these books for several days as there are a lot of stickers and characters, along with short stories to act out. Good fun for children and not bad for grandma's too!

My 3 year old absolutely loved this sticker book and spent hours doing it. I bought several from the same Usborne sticker books for girls range -princesses, movie stars etc and she loved them too. They are all a bit similar and overlap each other. This book was one of the biggest in the usborne sticker book range. The Dolls from around the world sticker book and dancers sticker books I bought were probably a bit old for my 3 year old as you needed to be able to read the descriptions to know where to put the stickers properly. As a result they sometimes didn't fit and annoyed her a bit. I would say they would be better for older children. The dolls, ballerinas and princess sticker books are great from 3 years old. Highly recommended.

We have bought lots of these sticker books for our 5 year old daughter and she can't get enough of them! Each page has pictures of the characters against a different back drop and there is a corresponding sticker page with lots and lots of stickers: clothes, accessories, objects etc. It is very easy to use; just peal back a sticker and place it where you want it - no scissors, no glue. There are twelve scenes in all and hundreds of stickers. This keeps our daughter entertained for hours; ideal for long journeys or rainy days. Thoroughly recommended.
