Review iPad App: Usborne Sticker Dolly Dressing

Usborne graciously gifted us with the Sticker Dolly Dressing App in exchange for a review.
If you have seen these books before, you'd have known how lovely it is to play with the dollies.

Here are our thoughts (mom included, because, ahem, yes I sneaked to play with it too).

LOVES

1. The ease of use.

You just have to drag and drop the apparels, and they "fit" on their own (you'd be surprised how some "dress up" apps requires you to match very carefully).

It is not hard to find where everything are.

2. Variety and beautiful graphics
There are eight scenes to use the dolls and there are many outfits to choose from. We get to keep the finished product in a gallery, which is kind of nice.

3. More than one doll
My daughter pointed out that it is fun that when you get to a scene, you can add dolls and dress up those friends too.

IMPROVEMENTS

1. Different outfits for different scenes
My daughter thinks it would be nice to have different outfits for the different scenes so you're not "reusing" all the time.
However, my other daughter thinks it might limit the choices (like a wedding on the beach scene?)

2. Color
The color is quite pastel, just like the book. But, while it looks pleasant and soothing on the book, it looks a little lack of lines in the app. I would think especially the hair color can be improved. There was a bright neon green that is bright and unnatural.

We do love this app and the girls had a lot of fun dressing and making up stories for them!

You can get the app (and the Princess Dolly app) for $3.99 each at the appstore!
