Times have changed and people's (and here I refer to kids, in particular) ideas of how to spend their free time are quite different from those of their parents or grandparents. Games have always been the main means of having some fun alone or with our friends, but nowdays internet has started to be perceived as our main entertainment provider. Therefore, now children have discovered a sort of a hybrid spare time activity: the free online games! Girls have their special niche: the girl games on line, which have become more and more popular as they answer to two on their most important needs: that of having fun and of discovering (learning)! Now, let's try to categorize the main types of girl games on the internet!
From a very young age, girls begin to be attracted to everything related to beauty and fashion. Instead of going through their mothers' make up products and wardrobe and try to copy grow up women's attitude and style, now they have the dress up games on the internet. Take for example the fashion 4 two dress up game, a super fun and instructive game for young girls! It simulates a shopping spree with their best friend and by the girlish, cute clothes and accessories, it guides the young girl's decisions, fashion preferences, towards what's really appropriate for her age and what's in style at the moment, of course!
The great thing about these online games focused specifically on girls is that many of them present situations are highly related to the real world, to any ordinary teenage life situations: going on a date, getting ready for school, taking a walk in the park with their dogs etc. You can find the latest of these actions best given by the girl in the park dress up game. The girl player gets to learn which are the fits suitable for this kind of context, what accessories would go with the combinations they come up with and all sorts of fashion tips and tricks.
As I have mentioned in the last paragraph, at this age, 13/14 years old, girls are really fascinated by grownups and have this tendency of copying them. Now, as for trying to be as good cooks as their mothers, here's a new, alternative method: the online cooking games! If I were to pick one of the most representative in this category, I would say that the ice cream factory is the funniest and the most instructive, at the same time! Girls get to learn all about mixing the right ingredients, choosing the right proportions and, here comes the fun part, since the layout, the design of the game is so attractively looking and the gamers are constrained by time, they get to have some fun time, after all!
Now, I bet any little girl in the whole world has dreamed, at least once in her life, of her perfect weeding! That's why, some of the most popular games online are the wedding games, out of which the beautiful bride game is bay far the most famous among girls! The model is so gracious gorgeous and refined that they can easily identify themselves with this beautiful bride and the bridal dresses are so different and fabulous that it's impossible to grow tired of it. It's a super fun game, adored by girls especially because they can almost bring their wedding related fantasies to life when they start playing and putting together those great bridal outfits!
Have I tried to convince all the skeptics out there that the internet can be kids 'big brother after all, when used in a cautious way and that in particular the online girl games can help a lot in the little girls' personal development?
