Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that several of the wardrobe choices in Suzy Dress Up have a mature or sexualized bent. Some, like bikini tops and miniskirts, reveal a lot of skin. And others, while not technically skimpy, have an uncomfortable sexual connotation, like thigh-high leather go-go boots. Much of the clothing is perfectly fine and appropriate for young kids, but these questionable items are in there -- and can look even more mature when combined with the heavily made-up faces.

QUALITY
 

In everything from its visual style and make-up choices to its fashion sensibility, SUZY DRESS UP seems geared more toward lovers of the Bratz dolls than to girls who would play with traditional paper dolls. The app has a very polished look, and it's fun to have choices that allow blue or green skin, or to add fairy wings. The sexualized look of the characters, though, does give one pause. In the end, it will be a parent's personal feelings toward the "Bratz-style" look that decides how she or he feels about Suzy Dress Up.
