Whether your child is a natural pink loving princess or a punk loving tomboy, there are many things to love about video games for young girls. Hip, challenging, and fun, these games allow your child to experiment with everything from fashion combinations to different hairstyles and makeup. Here are a few ways having a few fashion games on hand can benefit you and your child.
The best thing about online games is that they allow your child to learn and explore, all while rewarding them with fun animations, silly music, and a steadily climbing points system. Whether your child prefers to create her own wedding dress, design an outfit suitable for a queen, or she simply wants the exhilaration of running her own fashion show, there are thousands of games for young girls to choose from.
Along with allowing her to try different clothing combinations, color combinations, and more, you are doing more than just indulging her fashion whims. You are letting her learn more about what she likes in her own clothing. The same goes with games that center on hairstyles and makeup as well. In letting her play these games, she can learn which styles and makeup combinations she likes best.
The points system is important too. While some games provide simple scores, there are many-particularly those that are centered around combining outfits-that reward the player in the form of money. Along with teaching her the pleasure of shopping, this also teaches her the importance of saving up money or spending it wisely. While this may seem like a small thing to you, it is encouraging healthy budgeting concepts for her.
Best of all, there are plenty of fashion games out there that star popular characters, such as Barbie or Bratz dolls. This allows her a bit more flexibility when it comes to dressing them up. While playing with real dolls can be rewarding in its own way, online games provide you with a lot more in regards to clothes, hairstyles, and makeup than you would have with just the dolls alone.
