Good points:
My 7 year old daughter really likes this and uses it to manufacture her own fashion magazine. t has given her a lot of repeat play, there must be many thousand combinations within the cards and if you get tired with "style" there is always the alternative "what not to wear" aspect. If you need to travel these cards are much more compact than several dolls plus outfits and can be used with the "slide 2 style" if you are not intending to have a computer around.
Bad points:
The basic studio set is ok on its own but most users will want the additional themed packs of cards and, for reasons best known to Mattel, these were not readily available in the UK.
Colour printing is still quite expensive (not Mattel's fault).

heather, sheffield mother of 2 girls

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
great for imagination, and there is an infinite number of outfit combinations to make up. Can be done on either the PC or using the cards, making it a great portable toy. PC options include the catwalk show and the fashion mag covers, which really caught my daughters attention
Bad points:
PC disc didn't load up easily 1st time round. However, that might have been our computer, which is having problems

sue, Warwickshire busy lawyer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This product is really excellent for young children - it has helped my 5 year old daughter to navigate her way around the keyboard with no help or assistance from me. She has designed many outfits herself, a catwalk show and a fashion magazine. It's really good fun and she literally spent about 3 hours working it all out herself and then wanted to demo it to anyone that would listen to her. She is becoming quite the computer genius!
Bad points:
No bad points as far as I am concerned.
