The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The controls are explained in "help," but the combination of menus, arrows, and icons to tap all seems more complicated than it needs to be. Younger kids might need some help to find their way around the wardrobe and menus until they get the hang of where everything is.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

The girls can be stripped down to their underwear (a bra and panties). Some outfit choices could be considered revealing, like short shorts and mini-skirts, bathing suits that show cleavage, and halter tops that show bare midriffs.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Maya's Dress Up is a fashion game that lets kids choose outfits and accessories for a young woman named Maya and four of her friends. Each model starts out clothed, but can be stripped down to her underwear. Kids can change the models' hair color and style; skin tone (they are a racially diverse group) and physique (they are all thin) cannot be changed. Finished outfits can be shared via email or Facebook, or saved to the device. There is an HD version for iPad featuring improved graphics.

Sometime the game freezes up and you can't even play with game. Three days now I still can't play. :( :(

Is it any good?

MAYA'S DRESS UP is a fun and attractive-looking dress-up game for kids. The interface isn't terribly intuitive, but once kids get the hang of it there are dozens of clothing items, jewelry pieces, accessories, and hairstyles to choose from to give each of the game's five models the perfect look. Younger kids can even get in on the action thanks to a simple feature that lets them flip the iPhone over and back to give Maya a randomized new look each time.
