Melissa & Doug Dress Up Reusable Sticker Pad: Read Here First!
The Melissa & Doug “Dress Up” Reusable Sticker Pad is one of the line’s most popular ones – and if you’re reading about it here on kidslovedressup.com, you’ll know why. Dress up, in general, is so much fun!! Kids just love it.
There are times, however, when playing actual dress up with real costumes and accessories just isn’t do-able.
And that, friends, is when this reusable sticker pad which is all about the beloved DRESS UP FUN comes in super handy!
Reusable stickers are great as they promote fine motor skills, encourage manual dexterity in youngsters, are a fantastic “Quiet Activity”, and in general promote creativity.
Let’s look at some specs of the Melissa & Doug Dress Up Reusable Sticker Pad – and then at a few other fun ones.

Rating: 4.6/5 stars (343 reviewers)
Background Pages: 5 Sturdy, Full-color, Glossy Scene Pages
Accessory Stickers: Over 165 skirts, dresses, and accessory stickers. Repositionable, durable (don’t rip easily), cling-style.
Size: 14 x 11″. Dolls are approx. 7″.
Activity: Think old-school dressing up of “paper dolls” made simpler. Dress up the models with the stickers and then change their outfits at will!
Additional Fun: These stickers are fun in themselves as they stick to other surfaces too! My daughter loves to peel and reposition and create scenes on her closet mirrors and on her Ikea dresser side and drawers (the Malm one). She calls it “making parties” and it keeps her occupied for long lengths of time!
Target Play Age: It’s rated as 3+. Personally, I agree with this. My daughter is a pretty quick youngster, but her manual dexterity as a 2 year old couldn’t have handled the actions of “put the shoes on over the model’s feet” or “put the hat on her head”. Even now as a 3.5 year old, some of the details are slightly above her… but that might be her attention span too, come to think of it… 😉 I think that a mom would know if her little girl would be able to handle it! (In my own opinion, I’d think girls who are at the “play and dress up Barbie” stage… probably 4 or 5ish, might get the most out of it).
A Worthwhile Purchase? Absolutely!
