Software Review:    Disney's Cinderella's Dollhouse

Related Links
 

Although The Fairy Godmother places a "spell" on players that turns them into princesses, "interior decorator" would be a more accurate job description. This software allows kids to design the rooms of Cinderella's house, as well as the ballroom at the castle. Children can then add Cinderella characters to their scenes. Animated stickers bring the scenes to life in cute ways. And, adding more than one character to a room will cause them to engage in short conversations.  

The graphics of this game are lush and fanciful. In fact, they are sophisticated enough to appeal to adults as well. Children can choose the design scheme with simple clicks of the mouse, and stickers of things like sofas, beds, and chairs adjust automatically to fit against the different walls of the rooms. 

Children who enjoy free-play software programs will love this one. However, kids requiring "more" from their games will quickly be left wanting.

UPDATE 2004: This program is now available in an economical bundle, along with 2 other CD-ROMs: Princess Collection 2004

 
Pros:
  • Kids play house with beautiful decorations and designs, as well as familiar characters from Disney's Cinderella
  • Beautiful graphics
  • Open-ended play.

 

Cons:
  • For children who prefer a story line or adventure in their software, this program will quickly become tiresome.
