Princess Dress-Up: My Sticker Book

April 21, 2011

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

Dress up your favorite Disney Princess

This Disney Princesses sticker book has been a chart topper, and now it actually deserves a download. Very nice update! It's still not a traditional storybook, but it now has at least a short story for each princess and you can dress her up from head to toe (they added shoes!). Now your child can also see the princess in all her accessories and take her picture fully dressed. They even added another princess, Tiana. These changes should make a lot of little princesses (and their parents) very happy!

This little app in the 'books' category is really more of an 'entertainment' title - like digital paper dolls in sticker-book form. It features the very popular Disney Princesses, six in all (seven after update), which may explain its ranking in the app store. After a short story (3 pages), the child then gets to dress up each princess for a party. The app is packed with digital stickers for a truly stunning wardrobe befitting royalty, from head (tiaras, hats, etc.) to toes (shoes galore). If your child likes dress up apps, this one provides lots of playtime options. The stories are narrated with a setting to turn it off, a great way to encourage reluctant young readers.

I found this title to be easy to use as my child and I picked gowns and accessories to 'dress' each princess. Just tap the clothing item and a copy of it will appear near the princess to be dragged into place. To discard an outfit, just move it back to the 'sticker' bar that appears along the left side of the screen. The page turning is simple with arrows and the app is easy enough for a child to use on their own. The app also allows you to use your own picture inserted into the space where one of the princesses' faces would be, to personalize the experience.

One note about install size, though. The update more than quadrupled the size of the app, which can be an issue for those with limited space on their device. It's still under 100MB, but was under 20MB in version 1. Given the size and scope of the update, I'd say the extra disk space is worth it.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
