The head pieces are a little tricky, but if you're careful, they're worth the effort.

I love this collection. The colors are beautiful. I have other collections by Tom Tierney, but this one only has 9 costumes per gender. I noticed that some people say there is too much "near nudity", but it's nothing compared to what I see on the beach when people are in two piece bathing suits. So if you take your young child to a beach and don't mind them seeing people in bathing suits, then this collection will be just fine for young kids.

This book was just the added touch needed for a display I created at work on Egyptian culture.
The colors in the costumes are brilliant. The costumes are fairly easy to cut out with adult supervision. The head pieces are a little tricky, but if you're careful, they're worth the effort.

A wonderful tool for introducing children to ancient Egypt. It is a fun way for them to learn about another culture.

These paper dolls are a great aid in teaching-will be used for part of social studies unit on ancient cultures for 6th graders.

The drawings and costumes are exquisite, like most of Tom Tierny books are. The explanation of each type of costume is well-done and easy to understand. My only exception to the product is the near nudity--tastefully done and, I'm sure, just done to show authenticity, but it may be something to consider if you are buying this for a child. This particular book has a lot of the near nudity, but I guess that was ancient Egypt for you.

I actually got this for ideas on ancient Egyptian clothing for use on dolls. It was wonderful for that. I just wanted some good inspiration to do outfits for Barbie dolls and I did get design ideas. I have already sewn one of the outfits and it looks great on the doll!! I used braided black yarn for the wig and added the adornments in miniature that I got from this book!!!

We used this book of paper dolls as inspiration for dance costuming representing Ancient Egypt in a presentation at our local zoo's fundraiser "Caravan through Ancient Egypt". Beautiful paper dolls and costumes...excellent quality!

I purchased these to "decorate" an ancient Egypt report for my daughter. The artwork is beautiful but I did have to censure a few of the outfits (not quiet suitable for elementary school).
