Sticker Dolly Dressing giveaway

posted in: Giveaways | 68

Which book series defined your childhood?

For some it will be the Harry Potter books, for others it might be the Percy Jackson adventures. For my kids, so far, one of their abiding book passions in their first decade of reading – and associating great fun with books – is the Usborne Sticker Dolly Dressing series. For many years, these were the first books my kids would look for in a bookshop. They knew EXACTLY which shelf to look on, to see if a new book in the series had been published, and when books came home with us, the girls never failed to fill many happy hours pouring over the clothes, sticking the stickers and practising copying the illustrations.

This year is the 10th anniversary of the birth of the series, and to celebrate, I’ve a bundle of brilliant Sticker Dolly Dressing books to give away (Shh! Don’t tell my girls!):


I’ve one bundle of these three books (Historical Sticker Dolly Dressing 1930s Fashion, Historical Sticker Dolly Dressing Tudor Fashion and Historical Sticker Dolly Dressing Ball Gowns) to give away to a lucky blog reader. To be in with a chance of winning, simply leave a comment on this blog post, saying hello, or perhaps sharing what historical costume you’d like to try on.

And if you can’t make a party in a bookshop, why not have one at home using these FREE Sticker Dolly birthday activity sheets you can download from Usborne?

Please note: This giveaway is open to anyone with a UK/Eire address, and is open for one week only, until 5pm on Friday 7th of October 2016. I’ll draw a winner at random that evening, and will contact the winner by email. The winner will have one week to respond with their postal details.

    Used to draw and cut out clothes for paper dolls when I was little, it was my favourite thing to play (much to the annoyance of my parents who surrounded me with proper toys!) my niece would love the 1930’s once!

    I loved the cardboard tab cut out dolls, played for hours as a child, i’d pick the Tudors to try on all that ruffling, and sumptuous brocade. thanks for the chance to win.

    I would love to win to share with my granddaughter! I remember spending hours cutting out paper dolls and their clothes!

  4. Lisa Crowther

    I’d love to try on some of the Tudor fashions and hone my inner Elizabeth I – my waist certainly hasn’t been that small since having children! The ruff certainly looks like an interesting item to wear!

    Fab giveaway 🙂 My favourite movie is Gone With the Wind so obviously I’d love to try on some of the gowns from that era 🙂 I’d love to look like s
    Scarlett 🙂 hoop skirt and all. If I had to choose one of the dresses from that movie it would be the green one she made out of her mama’s curtains 🙂

  6. Hayley Todd

    Thank you for this lovely competition! I would love to try on the amazing dresses from the Tudor period! I wonder how uncomfortable they would have been to wear and walk around in all day!

  7. Marie Rule

    My daughter would really love this prize. Thank you for the competition.

  8. Vickie Jackson

    Wow, these are amazing! I love these and think they’re great!!

    I’ve always fancied trying a medieval gown and a wimple….I reckon my ancestors were probably peasants though!

    Such a brilliant giveaway. My daughter sounds much like yours, she loves these kinds of books! 🙂 It would be awesome to win these for her x

  11. Dawn Samples

    I would have loved to have lived in the late 18th century, I love the gowns they wore and their way of life x

  12. Elaine Fitzpatrick

    I used to love the dressing up books with the tabs on the clothes when I was a child.

    If I could wear any costume it would be something from the era of The House of Elliot – love the cloche hats and long coats
