Cute sim, but requires too much attention and real money.

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.

Boring and just a click click click buisness sim

I downloaded it and it wasn't what I wanted. I wanted to be creative and design clothes but you just run a buisness. Awful and boring yet still asks for money, money to accomplish... nothing. But this isn't designing, creating, or dress up it is a buisness sim. Just clicking and then it wants money to make the boring game go faster. I guess it is SAFE but why let your kids waste time on this? It doesn't promote creativity, or use brainpower with puzzles. It's a clicker game.

Gets boring really quick !!!!

It was great at the beginning you earn gems regularly by videos offered to watch daily up to 6 times and each time you got a gem but the longer you play the videos decrease to the point you get none offered now. You need to buy a lot and I mean a lot of clothes to get one gem. You earn lots of money but it’s no good because you need 40 gems per time to increase the floor space by a tiny bit and it takes ages to do so it becomes very time consuming with very little reward and it’s becomes so boring. It’s definitely a games towards spending your money to buy gems to make the game interesting. Sometimes you do pay some accessories they show distorted. People coming in and buying the stuff all look the same only women and one of them looks so angry it’s funny. Visually ok. But the constant pop up of their advertising of other games becomes beyond painful. If you don’t want to spend your own money regularly I would not recommend this game to anyone.
