Product Description

Product Description

Girls can appear on screen as the princess of their dreams. With Ariel, Belle or Jasmine as their guide, girls get to make their own My Virtual Model princess by selecting from several different hair styles and skin tones -- they can even import a photo of their own face!

Amazon.com

Belle, Jasmine, and Ariel are your guides in Disney Princess Magical Dress-Up, a game that lets girls ages 5 and older play fashion designer with a vast range of princess dresses, hairstyles, and accessories. Players can design a model for the clothes on offer, choosing from a range of skin tones, body shapes, and hairstyles to create their inner princess. Alternately, they can create a new body and simply paste on a scanned photo of themselves.

Having constructed their model, girls can do a number of things--dress her up, search for more clothing and accessories in a trio of magical worlds, or paste finished ensembles into a sticker book. The last application allows you to literally insert yourself into animated scenery of Disney movies, creating pictures of yourself hobnobbing with characters from The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin.. Bright and relentlessly cheerful, the game urges girls to build pretty gown after pretty gown, complimenting their choices at every turn.

Burdened with an oversensitive installer and a balky interface, Disney Princess Magical Dress-Up never quite manages to overcome its flaws. Variations on this style of game abound, after all, hovering in an electronic netherworld between old-fashioned paper doll kits and more sophisticated makeover programs available to older girls. This particular version, though, has few things going for it. While it does allow players to design somewhat realistic princess models, its only real appeal lies in its three familiar characters and the recognizable aesthetic of its artwork. And even in this its scope is sadly limited, with no clothes on offer from the formidable collection of female villains in the Disney canon. Everything is very serious and very pretty, and girls wanting to build zany costumes--or even a reasonably varied wardrobe--may want to look elsewhere. --Alyx Dellamonica

This is an open-ended, well rounded, creativity program that features three main activities. Design ballgowns with thousands of not millions of possible combinations, visit the worlds of Belle, Jasmine, and Ariel to find extra goodies for creating outfits, or create stories by coloring pictures and adding stickers to them. You can even create a princess that looks like you by importing a picture of your face. All of the activities are fun and the dresses are just beautiful. If you know a young girl or are young at heart, get it.

This game was a big hit with my eight-year-old niece. It imports all photo file types. She enjoyed making Princess pictures of herself, her little sister, and all of her aunties! The game is definitely fun and really encourages creativity.
That said, there were parts I did not like. The software could be more seamless. The import photo section (where girls create their own virtual models) is separate from the other CD activities. This doesn't pose a huge problem, but .... if you want to bring in someone else's photo, you have to exit your current session (and therefore lose the creations you've made in that session).
One bonus activity: girls can place their models into different scenes they create in "Star of the Story." They can print the scenes in full color, or just with the black outlines (resembling a coloring book). This could be fun way for my 3-year-old niece to get involved--she can color her own pictures from the "coloring book" designs that her big sister creates.

Even though my computer had MUCH MORE than the minimum requirements to run this program, we never could get it to operate. The product repeatedly locked up right after you selected the body shape. The music still played, and you could select a different body shape, but it would not let you move to the next level.

This version of Fashion Boutique is not as good as the first with Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty. While my daughter can play it at age 5, she needs help finding the patterns and the jewels. She is not yet able to play this alone, as she is many other Disney and Barbie games. However, she does like Ariel and Belle, so she does play it, but I spend more time than she does searching for the designs.

I was completely disappointed with this product. I have always been so pleased with Disney products in the past. I couldn't believe that Disney put their name on this. It was very simple in nature, and was far from as interesting as what was stated on the box. My five year old said "Why are the Princess' so ugly?
(and she was right).
I have just written to Disney, and plan on returning this.

I got the disney's princess fashion boutique and unless they have upgraded substantially, it is NOT WORTH THE MONEY,,,I took the boutique back twice and it never worked correctly. They said I could send it to the company...and they might replace it. ...so as far as I am conserned I will NOT be buying any more disney games for my 2 little girls. Thought you might like to know.

My 6 year old really enjoys playing with this, especially the "Star of the story" section. I'm surprised to see so many negative reviews. My daughter fell in love with this software immediately. Although she doesn't play with it every day, she certainly plays with it often. She likes it so much that we have bought it as gifts for several friends.
