A lot or a little?

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

Positive Messages

The game rewards creativity as well as fulfilling the needs of others. Keep in mind, however, that the entire focus of the game is on clothing and girls' physical looks.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Everybody in the game, with the exception of a picky shopper character, is overwhelmingly positive and complimentary. Even when a customer doesn't love the clothes you've picked out, the game still makes sure there's someone to encourage you to do better next time.

Ease of Play

As long as you can follow directions (which is the true test of the game), you should be able to do very well.

Violence & Scariness
Language
Consumerism

This game is just one of dozens of titles in the ever-expanding Imagine line of girls' video games.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Imagine: Fashion Stylist is a simulation game that puts kids in the shoes of the manager of a clothing store. While the focus is pretty much entirely on fashion and one's physical looks, the game does encourage players to be creative and express themselves with the styles they choose for clients. There's also some management involved, as your character will actually run the store. Players will learn simple business lessons like keeping within a budget.

What's it about?

In IMAGINE: FASHION STYLIST, you get to be the manager of a mall clothing store. You will not only help customers find clothes that match exactly what they're looking for, you will also have to manage the store's money and visit (make-believe) fashion designers to decide which clothes you'll buy to stock your store. The storyline and format of the game are incredibly similar to that of Nintendo's Style Savvy.

Is it any good?

Imagine: Fashion Stylist offers a lot of great features for kids interested in fashion. They can express their creativity not only in the outfits they put together for clients, but also in the clothing lines and pieces they decide to stock in their store. But the game is not all about creativity. It also offers a fair amount of business-type play. Kids will be tempted to stock their stores with every cool shirt or dress they see, but they'll be forced to choose more wisely as they have a limited amount of funds. The game is very good, and frankly would seem much better if it didn't bear such an incredibly strong resemblance to another great DS fashion game, Style Savvy, which offers all the same and more, and is presented with a bit more polish.

  • When does interest in one's looks go too far and become obsession over physical appearance?
