Dress-up app for boys and girls is a little buggy.

I am wondering why the android app needs access to my camera and all the images on my phone, phone and state identity and information about WiFi and all nework states? Could be a great app, I will never know...

Is It Any Good?

DRESS ME UP may not have the best-looking artwork in the world, but as a simple dress-up game, it provides a simple activity for little kids to have a fun, creative time. The app feels geared toward very young kids, but some of the features don't mesh with that audience. The menu is text only, making it less accessible, and the Facebook connect option seems out of place here. Overall, the app is a little clunky and some kids might want more control over clothing options or colors (the color selector tool wasn't working on this version of the app). Dress Me Up does get some bonus points, though, not just for having boy characters to dress up, but for staying away from gender stereotypes when it comes to the costume choices.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
