The Stardoll community is definitely a great Internet playground for children between the age of 7 and 16 but also suitable for anyone else who likes to dress and play around with paper dolls. The site offers two main areas. The first can be accessed without registering an account on the Stardolls website.
You can pick a celebrity, e.g. Johnny Depp, Kylie Minogue or Heidi Klum and have a wardrobe at your disposal that you can use to change their outfit. If you take Johnny you can dress him with the same clothes that he was wearing in the movie The Pirates of the Caribbean or with a multitude of other clothes.
The second area deals with your own playdoll that you can design similar to the Mii characters from the Nintendo Wii. You can customize eyes, noses, hair and a lot more and the dolls can be designed to resemble people that you know. Take a look at the benefits of membership:
You do receive 25 so called Stardollars which can be used to shop for new clothes in the Stardoll shop. More dollars can only purchased which the site uses to generate revenue. While you do not have to purchase play money with real money, several features of the site are limited if you do not.
I think that even grown ups will have fun playing around with all the possibilities at Stardolls. And hej, all celebrity dolls are shown wearing only their pants at the beginning ;)
The celebrity dress up game is available under "Dress Up Games" in the main toolbar. Just click on it and pick one of the celebrities that you want to dress up. You can print what you have created, email i
t to friends, or save it. Note that the latter option is only available if you create an account on the site.
