Royal Colouring Book
My daughter is enthralled by the new summer sticker dolly book from Usborne. Not only do you get to decide what the dollies wear throughout the book you actually get to design the colours and patterns on the clothes too which of course is endless fun.
There are summer accessories to colour in and there are pattern stickers to place alongside the outfits like material swatches. It teaches a few fashion tips too and describes styles. There is even an app to go with it if you fancy. All a budding designer could want! Hours of fun £5.99
