Heyy! I have 4 dolls, I being a My American Girl Doll. A lot of people are worried about the cost of this website. Dolls that come with a code are $105. Yes, that's a lot of money. Is it worth it? If your child/you/someone you know will use it offline and online then it's one of the best purchases you'll ever make. Also, the site has the option to buy a book (about 8 dollars) and get FULL access to the site for 14 days! Try this out to see how you like it!
This site has educational games too, like Help Desk Hubbub, which is all about learning and answering fun educational questions. Hike & Seek teaches about different plants and animals in environments while you learn and find the items on your checklist. There are also fun games like Cupcake Crazy, Bake Sale, and Care & Share. Care & Share encourages girl to donate (virtually, no real money is involved) and donate clothing online that their dolls no longer wear, stars (form of currency), and more to help out others.
You get awards for playing games, medals for being brave, strong, confident, and more! Your real doll comes with a charm-keeper necklace. Each outfit you get for your doll in real life comes with a charm with positive messages, The charms say things like fair, proud, real, and more!
I think an 8 year old to a 17 year old would enjoy this! The form of currency is "stars". You earn stars by playing games. Then you can buy outfits, and upgrade your room, go to the Real Beauty Salon to get a new hairstyle! Your offline doll can get outfits that your online doll can then buy in the online stores! Or she could have outfits she doesn't have in real life. Check out YouTube for videos on this site. I think that it's definitely worth it and I LOVE american girl. It teaches so many good values.
I wrote a long review so you could see what Innerstar U is really about! I hope you get the chance to go on this wonderful website and see for yourself!
