A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

The interface is easy to use, though being able to see thumbnails of clothing selections would have been preferable to the need to cycle through every available option.


Suzy can be dressed in some revealing clothing, including midriff-bearing shirts, miniskirts, bikini tops, and corset-style tops that show some cleavage.

What 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.

Is it any good?

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.
