A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Disney Fairies Fashion Boutique extends the Pixie Hollow website theme into a fun fashion app. Kids pretend to be boutique owners taking orders from fairy customers for custom-made pieces of clothing and accessories. The app makes fashion creation easy for kids with the process from customer order to finished garment very organized and limited. As with other simulation games, in-app purchases can speed things up. The wait times can range from less than a minute to more than an hour, which might tempt kids to spend real money.

What's it about?
Kids create an avatar for their shop owner or download a fairy from their Pixie Hollow website account. A step-by-step tutorial walks them through the clothing design process. Kids get more customers and design choices once they meet certain goals, such as training helpers. After kids design an outfit, it takes some time for the app to create it (from 30 seconds to more than an hour). Kids can speed up the process by paying a diamond, which they get through gameplay or with in-app purchase. Kids can also upgrade or decorate their store.
Is it any good?
For fashion, fairy, and Pixie Hollow fans, DISNEY FAIRIES FASHION BOUTIQUE will delight with its beautiful boutique and many options for activities and fashion creation. Any frustration in this game only exists in the amount of time it takes to process the orders once kids create the outfits. It's unfortunate that the amount of time it takes to complete orders is tied to paying diamonds, which are earned through patient gameplay or purchased with real money via in-app purchases. Otherwise, this game is filled with fairy dust fun and fashion creativity.
