Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this time-management game is aimed at tween and teen girls but anyone can play. Players build a beauty spa empire, starting with one shop where they help Sally, the proprietor, juggle her customers.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

Things can get hectic down at Sally's Spa, a cute tap-and-drag game where the goal is to expand. Make people wait too long for their sauna or facial and they get huffy and walk out. Cater to every whim and attract famous clientele. This game keeps kids on their toes, tapping, dragging, and dropping through 50 levels. The animations are very simple but pretty. It might not be brain surgery, but Sally's Spa is fun.

My 3 and 5-year olds love it... no social gaming, just the kiddos and I playing an innocent game together. I think it's so cool how easily kids can figure out these computer games.
