Dress up games are one of the latest Internet trends, and both children and adults are playing them now. They are a new fad, and one that is available all over the Internet, with people from all over the world giving them a try. They involve dress up a virtual doll with several virtual pieces of clothing and accessories. Kids like these games because they get to dress their favorite character in any way they want, while adults enjoy them because they're relaxing, fast to find and load and safe for the office. In addition, it's not uncommon for people with a taste for fashion, style or beauty to pick them up as a way to develop their taste and creativity.
There is a surprising range of themes that these games feature. For example, you can dress up the dolls with clothes that are usually worn by certain professions, like policeman, fireman, business, doctor, engineer, etc. Some games feature child dolls, teen dolls, and adult dolls. Others will let you play with famous characters, singers, or actors, such as Jennifer Love Hewitt or Christina Aguilera. For those with a flavor for the international, there are games that allow you to play with typical attire from several countries. For example, you could give your doll a Mexican sombrero, a Japanese kimono, or a sari from India. Yet another variation is sports, allowing you to make your doll a basketball, football or baseball player. Some of the games feature other aspects of looks other than clothing, such as make up and hair style. If you're into retro fashion, you can also find games that let you dress your doll in rock 'n' roll, hippie, or disco style. And of course, you can play them the "normal" way and just try dozens of shirts, blouses, pants, skirts, shoes, purses, hats, etc. Dress up games are really fun, every girl knows it.
As with anything that gets popular online, there are tons of sites that you can find with just a click of your mouse, with a range of style and features that appeal to all ages and tastes. Aside from the fact that they're fun and creative, people like them because of some other reasons. The main one is that they're free, which is already something rare these days. They're also safe. There's no sex or violence that may perturb your child or embarrass you in the office. They're also easy to find, playable without any previous knowledge, quick hand-eye reflexes and fast to download. You can play one between sending an e-mail and writing a report. You can leave one for the moment while you take a call and then resume it later. Unlike real dolls, they do not require storing, caring or arranging, although some people may prefer the feeling they get when they can actually touch or carry a doll in their hands. On the other hands, real dolls can break, tear, fall and damage, or be misplaced, lost or stolen. And you can not take them to work.
