Your little princesses will have a blast creating elaborate costumes with this CD-ROM game. Players select eye, face, hair and body colors and styles with the help of Snow White, Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty as a guiding princess. You also have the option of importing a photo of your child to personalize the game. Next, it's off to dress the princess in a variety of gowns, accessories, fabric patterns and colors. Players can save their gowns for use later in the Star of the Story art studio section. In my 7-year-old's favorite area, a player can explore one of three Enchanted Worlds to collect new fabrics and accessories to add to the Dressing Room. Though the game is recommended for ages 5 and older, my 4-year-old daughter enjoys dressing up the princess and can easily navigate around most of the game thanks to encouragement and assistance from one of the guiding princesses. During initial set-up, there is an option to allow Internet access (we declined). If permitted, players can access a Disney Web site for additional dresses and accessories. Princess Fashion comes with a bonus CD, Little Mermaid Print Studio for making stationary, cards and posters.
