From the back cover:
‘This delightful little book has fairies for you to dress using the enchanting stickers. The back cover folds out so you can ‘park’ spare stickers while you dress the fairies.’
This sticker book measures around 17 cm x 24 cm. Some pressure is required to get the book to lie flat at the chosen pages initially, in my experience. Nevertheless, it is a well-produced book as you might expect from Usborne with a fold-out facility on the inside back cover, to store the stickers in, too.
‘Printed in China’
AGE GUIDE (from the back cover):
'Not suitable for children under 36 months due to small parts. Choking hazard.’
Pretty in shades of pink for the best part, the thick card cover opens to 24 shiny finish, numbered pages for the stickers as per the contents at the front, namely:
~ FLORA THE FAIRY
~ MEADOW BLUE
~ A FAIRY RING
~ THE STARLIGHT FAIRIES
~ THE FAIRY QUEEN
~ THE TOOTH FAIRY
~ FAIRY DUST
~ A SNOWY DAY
~ THE TREETOP FAIRIES
~ TIME TO REST
Each has a short relevant paragraph in black text.
In the second half, the colourful, good quality, matte finish stickers each have the scene title & relevant page numbers shown at the top, with an instruction, if applicable, e.g. ‘Put the skirt on first’.
These pages are detachable, and the stickers are easy to remove for the best part, also in my experience.
