Little girls love to play dress up and imagine themselves as different characters. For older girls, the dress up aspect remains, but the fun part is creating a “look” and finding a personal style. Pretty Fabulous Fashion Activity offers lots of fun games and activities for girls (age 9-11) who enjoy fashion, clothes and design.
Pretty Fabulous Fashion Activity is a new app from Arcturus Digital Ltd. for the iPad. It is based on the Pretty Fabulous Series of puzzles and books and includes 16 different pages including:
- a secret code
- a maze
- a T-shirt designing page
- a digital manicure
- a mix-n-match wardrobe design page
- a fashion show page
Have a look:
There are six different characters introduced in the app, each one representing a different personality type (girly, sporty, retro, glam, casual, and classic). I think most girls will identify with at least one of them.
The user interface is very intuitive and includes buttons across the top of the page. They allow you to navigate back and forth to any page; it is also possible to reset a page (to clear it) or to take a picture of it (to save it). The design tools are pretty slick as well. There are the typical color brushes, but there is also something called a “pattern pen,” which allows you to create your own pattern that can then be applied to the clothes.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked-
Overall, Pretty Fabulous Fashion Activity gets high marks for its design and its content, especially the multicultural touches. The six friends remind me of a group of girls one might see out and about at the mall on a Saturday afternoon. I especially like the Shoe-doku game (in which pairs of shoes take the place of numbers) and the mix-and-match wardrobe activity.
Girls this age don’t have many apps geared to their unique interests; Pretty Fabulous Fashion Activity does a good job knowing what its target audience likes and providing pages that will appeal to them. It is sophisticated enough to appeal to older girls, while offering content that is absolutely age appropriate. The message on each page is that a girl needs to find a look and a style that makes her comfortable, and then she needs to be creative and express her individuality from there.
Pretty Fabulous Fashion Activity is available for download via the iTunes App Store - iPad
