Sticker Dolly Dressing: Dolls by Fiona Watt, Vici Leyhane and Stella Baggott (Usborne)

Age Range: 4 to 7

The Sticker Dolly Dressing activity book was my daughter’s favourite Christmas present. She loves stickers and was busy with this book for several days. Three dolls, Ellie, Daisy and Kitty, live in a doll’s house with their cat and their puppy and each double page spread features a different activity that they like doing or a familiar scenario, for example horse riding, roller skating, going to the beach or going to bed.

The illustrations are beautiful, bright and bold and the stickers are easy to use (they peel off again quite easily if you haven’t stuck them in the right place but you need to be quick!). Although not a story book there is a short piece of text to accompany each picture. This provides scope for stimulating discussion, learning new vocabulary (as in my daughter’s case) and making up your own stories. The books would also be great to use with non native English speakers to generate conversation.

Usborne have a wide range of sticker dressing books covering all sorts of topics including several historical versions – Romans, Kings and Queens, Knights and Soldiers. They also have Princesses, Pirates, Fairies, Sports – too many to name here! I often buy them for birthday presents.

This is a fun activity book, it would be great for a long journey or as a holiday activity. There are also Sticker Dolly Dressing, Sticker Dolly Princess and Sticker Dolly Pirate Apps for the iPad.

  1. My daughter tried the app and really liked it. However, I would imagine that the book will never be looked at again once all the stickers were stuck in its place. Kind of a pitty at €7,99. Perhaps a good activity for a very long plane or car ride but does not quite have me convinced yet.

    • Hi Ulrike, glad your daughter liked the app. I usually find that sticker books are redundant after all the stickers have been used but this one is different. My daughter still asks me to read it to her and often reads it to her dolls or sits and looks at the pictures on her own, she contributed to the making of the book so it is her story. The more factual books in the series, Kings and Queens, Sport or Romans, are also information books that can be read repeatedly after the stickers have been used. I was very excited when I found out about the books that make history learning fun, I’m sure that I can learn something from them too!

  2. Now you have succeeded in making me curious! Sounds like more than just a sticker book after all. I will make sure to remember this one for our next vacation!

  3. My daughter is a big fan of the Usborne dressing up sticker books. We got a few for Christmas – the Around the world one which encourages questions about different countries and cultures and dancing one which helps her learn about different types of dances. Melissa & Doug also do good dressing up sticker books

    • I like the look of the Around the World book, great for expat kids who may be moving around or the ones left behind when their friends moved away. That’s the next one on my wish list :)

  4. Yes, the Around the World book looks great for kids.. Children can sometime forget of the whole world outside their immediate vicinity. Will order it from the library & hopefully can take a look soon.

    • They’re really good stickers aren’t they. I think that my daughter has done most of the Sticker Dolly Dressing books now – in German as well as English! Maybe we should star on the houses…
