Nayuleska's thoughts

I've spent a fun 40 mins sticking princesses drinking tea in towers, enchanting princess ice skaters on a frozen pond, having a princess getting dressed up dance on a stool and many other fun activities. There is something relaxing about stickers, being able to put them where you want. 

It gets 9/10 because occasionally the stickers would tear if I tugged them the wrong way and you needed to be sure where you put them as it is quite hard to restick them. Also the dress up princesses atnthe back didnt have a middle part to their dress, the masks covered up their faces in white, ditto the gloves, and one dress wasn't long enough. Those niggles aside it's a fun read, with the story continuing on for however long the reader's imagination lasts.
