Mariah is coming up on 16-years-old this year. Yes, I am getting old. She's at the age now where the normal teenage things interest her. The days of her playing with dolls is pretty much over. However, if she were a little bit younger, she could incorporate that hobby with the computer she uses so much and play some virtual Dress Up Games.
There's this site called thedollpalace.com where kids can go online and play Dress Up Games to make dolls and animated personalized avatars. They can create avatars and then use those to participate in forums, games for girls and contests.
Now that I look at it, Mariah probably could still use this. The dolls aren't really tailored to baby dolls like the kind that cry and need their diapers changed. They have an almost teen look to them. In fact, they even offer HTML codes for MySpace or as Instant Messenger icons.
The images shown here are a little misleading. They actually have more to offer than just the princess and/or fairy looks. There are celebrity sections where they can dress them up to look like movie stars (without the hoochie appearances). There's even a guy's section (though not anatomically correct) so the little fellas won't feel left out.
As with anything online for children, you would want to make sure to monitor how they're using it and what type of forums they get into. But that goes without saying. Every good parent should already know that.
