Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (7 ):

Fans will have a blast extending their play, combining their dolls and the show; however, in-app purchases or buying the dolls is pretty much essential for any extended play, because earning the gems to unlock content seems nearly impossible. For a shorter shelf life, it's possible to play the free version, as the avatar choices present a nice range of diversity, and the closet of clothes is pretty full. It's fun to discover and unlock different parts of the school -- the library, classrooms, the cafeteria -- and to chat with friends in the hallways, so fans who love the social, dress-up culture of the show also will get a kick out of the app.

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.
