OK, so I had heard of Stardoll, so I decided to sign up. I had no idea that there were upgrades to Superstar, and I thought you could buy anything you wanted without being a Superstar but I was wrong. You had to become a Superstar to buy all items from all shops, sell your own clothes, buy second hand clothes, play all dress-up games, etc.
However this isn't such a big problem, because Regular members can still buy some clothes, but the clothes they can buy are basic and limited. For example, a Regular member can't buy a posh evening dress or a piece of nice jewellery, but they could buy a plain black skirt, a white blouse, basic jeans etc. A Superstar member could buy all of that, including the dress and jewellery.
OK, so you're probably thinking, "Well, upgrade to Superstar then!" Easier said than done. You have to pay to be a Superstar, and unless your family can afford it, then Stardoll can be quite dull, as Regular members have rather plain suites, while Superstars have all-sorts of interiors, decor etc. Also, regular members only earn 5 Stardollars a day (70 Stardollars a month), and guess what - 4 of those 5 Stardollars expire in a day! However, when you upgrade to Superstar, you get 200 Stardollars a month until your Superstar membership runs out, while poor Regular members only have 70 a month!
I am very lucky because I am a Superstar with a lot of Stardollars but trust me, I have two accounts, one Superstar with a lot of Stardollars and one Regular with very little Stardollars. So, because I am a Superstar, I enjoy Stardoll, but while I am on my Regular account I don't. Stardoll also focuses mainly on things that only Superstars can buy or get too.
By withdrawing things from Regular members that Superstar members can get, Stardoll is trying to get money out of you so you will become a Superstar, which is very sneaky, and in this respect I don't like Stardoll.
There are also some inappropriate clubs with unsuitable content for the younger members of the site.
However, the site sends out a nice message. You know, girly, glittery, celebs, fame, fashion and creativity, which is nice.
The last thing I need to say is making friends and socializing with other members on Stardoll. If you are under 13, you can choose to Kidlock an account, which means you can't have a guestbook for other members to write messages in, and you can't join any clubs. But being a non-Kidlocked member isn't a problem either, because you can block or report any member who is being abusive.
Hope I helped, I know it is a long review but I had a lot to say!
