No longer are little girls dreaming of having a baby doll that they can dress up in cute pink little outfits. Those kind of dolls might have been popular years ago but they are not anymore. The dolls that children are playing with these days are not plastic dolls that come with clothes and accessories. The modern form of the doll is the virtual doll that is in online dress up games. There are many different online dress up games where you can find these virtual dolls and their virtual clothes and accessories. These games give children the opportunity to dress and re-dress the dolls over and over again and there are no expensive dolls and doll clothes to buy.
What exactly do you have to have to play these games? The only things you need are a computer connected to the internet and your imagination. The clothes for these games do not need to be washed, dried and ironed or even stored in your home. All you do is drag and drop the outfits you want to put on the virtual doll. That is much easier than putting some of those complicated doll outfits on baby dolls.
You may wonder if these online dress up games are safe for your children to play or if you should be worried. You may also wonder if there is any educational value in these games or if they are just a waste of time. Your children are not going to improve their math skills, knowledge of science or history or their spelling abilities while playing these games but they can help them express their creativity and use their imagination. By creating outfits that go together children are learning about style, shapes and color and improving their artistic abilities. These online dress up games can lead to an interest in other artistic hobbies like drawing or painting. They can also help your children discover if a career in fashion design is the right path for them.
The best thing about online dress up games is they bring out your child’s creativity and encourage them to use their imagination. The games may seem silly and trivial and you may wonder what your children could possibly get out of putting party outfits and swimming outfits on virtual dolls and then changing them into rocker outfits. What are the benefits?
Something to keep in mind is that these games encourage creativity and are a much better thing for your child to be doing than playing some of the extremely violent and graphic video and online games that are out there. There is little or no chance your child is going to be harmed or suffer mental issues as a result of dressing up virtual dolls but you can’t say the same for bloody, violent game.
