If you have a small girl, then chances are you know who the Bratz is and maybe even their individual names. If your girl likes them and has talked to you about them, then you can tell Cloe from Yasmin, know who's nicknamed Bunny Boo, and of course, know they are the girls with a passion for fashion. The Bratz have been so successful that all sorts of products with their image and name have been produced, including free online games. It's no wonder that Mattel, the company that produces Barbie, has tried to legally stop the Bratz mania.
We know you love your child, and you would like to buy her whatever her heart desires, but as you know, there are things that take priority, like school materials and doctor bills. Have you considered getting them to play Bratz dress up games? I suggest you give it a try. There are hundreds of sites with dress up games featuring the Bratz characters, where your daughter can pretend to be one of the Bratz girls or her fashion designer. In addition, your child will practice eye-hand coordination as she visualizes, compares, clicks, and moves things around.
Not only online dress up games are friendly to your wallet, they also avoid cleaning and sorting after play. No tripping and falling due to dolls forgotten on the floor, or tears from your girl because some minuscule shoe got lost or broke. All you need is a computer and internet access, and if you're reading this article, you have them already.
Just what kind of games do these sites have? Well, there's actually quite some variety on the activities that these games propose.
Aside from the dress up games, which are basically a virtual version of the paper dolls you used to play with, there is a theme party game. Your child has to help one of the Bratz girls sort out the most appropriate outfit for a given party theme. There is a time limit, so the child has to make quick decisions.
There are also makeover games. Some versions will also feature arranging the Bratz doll's hair and surrounds. You will even find some that let your daughter give the Bratz characters a facial. Just like the Bratz themselves, it's all about passion for fashion.
Then, there are other games that have a more arcade feeling to them. For example, you'll have to send Sasha through a mall that looks like a labyrinth and get that one special pair of shoes under a certain amount of time. Or you might have to help Jade organize a fashion show with a limited budget. Some of these games let you carry a scenario from one game to the next, so, for example your character will have a slightly larger budget each game.
Of course, you can always play one of these games yourself. Just to supervise what your little girl is doing, of course. Just do not forget that you have to work the next day.
