Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Dress Up! Fashion is a free fashion game that lets kids choose outfits, accessories, hairstyles, and makeup for young models. The models are all thin, and players can't always change their skin color to something other than the default white (the "Decadent Wedding" scene, for example, only features a white model). There are two looks available for free, and the other 10 must be unlocked by paying $2.99. Finished looks can be shared via Facebook, Twitter, or email, or saved to the device.

Is it any good?


With just two themes and a handful of different options to choose from in each fashion category, DRESS UP! FASHION doesn't offer much variety compared to other dress-up games. The graphics are nothing special, either. Additional outfits, along with 10 other themes, can be unlocked by paying $2.99. It's not an unreasonable fee to pay, but the part of the game that's free doesn't inspire much confidence that it would be worth forking over real cash.

Fashion App is Appropriate but Disappointing

I gave this an "On" review only because it is appropriate. I got this game because it looked fun, but then I saw you only have two outfit styles to choose from!!! I did each of the 2 outfits once before deleting the app! Don't get it, its not worth your time, gigabites, or money!
