SUPER app with one BIG issue
We love Love LOVE this app! It's fun and sweet! There are several different ethnicities represented, there aren't any "sexy" outfits and there's no make-up, which I think is perfect. I'm giving 3 stars because all of the "dolls" that you can choose to dress have an ~extremely~ thin body type and it is NOT healthy to teach children that every girl from all over the world should be so thin.
I've considered deleting the app for this reason, but instead we're choosing to point this out to our girls and have a conversation about how most girls bodies really don't look like these dolls.
~ To the Creators of this app ~
PLEASE CONSIDER INCLUDING BODY TYPE DIVERSITY IN YOUR DOLLS ALONG WITH YOUR EXCELLENT REPRESENTATION OF ETHNIC DIVERSITY <3
Sweet and charming
My daughter loves this simple, sweet app. The dolls are lovely and the clothing is classic and adorable. Such a refreshing change in a world of dolls that are more pin-up than play school! I love this game.
Pretty fantastic. Worth every penny.
My daughter loves this app, we have every app this team makes and they are all 100% awesome and worth every cent.
