Dress-up game is more style than substance.

This is my daughter's favorite app

This is my 2 year old daughter's favorite app. I have several dress up apps on my iPod, but this is the one she always picks. I'm surprised this site only rated it 2 stars. To say all she does is spin is not true. She has different moves for every article of clothing that you tap. And I'm glad there's no scroll menu since my daughter gets frustrated with them in other dress up apps. With this app, all she has to do is tap anywhere on the screen, and something always happens.

Is It Any Good?

MY FAIRY PRINCESS has the basic elements of a fun dress-up game, but doesn't follow through. You can choose dresses, shoes, crowns, and wings for different fairies and change the background by shaking your iDevice. But, the inability to do more with the fairy than cause her to spin in a circle and the lack of a save option will likely leave your child wanting more. After scrolling through the outfits once or twice, kids will likely find themselves asking, "Now what?" Also, this is an expensive app for what you get.

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.
