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.

To gain extra entries, please share this giveaway on any of your social media streams, leaving a comment with a link (where possible) to the share. If you want to tweet you could use this:

Do look out for a Sticker Dolly Dressing party near you: during October, bookshops across the UK will be celebrating Sticker Dolly Dressing Day with in-store crafts and activities, badges and a competition to win £50 of Usborne books. Why not ask about it in your local bookshop? 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. If I don’t hear from the winner within that time, a new lucky recipient will be drawn. Good luck!

    We have a serious Sticker Dolly Dressing Book addict in our house, I can really relate to your first paragraph! What I like about the books is that they span such a wide age range. We started with the first Sticker Dolly Dressing Book but now the Shakespeare and Kings and Queens books are now really inspiring lots of learning.
