Style Boutique DS is a light-hearted look at the world of shopping and fashion which is something obsessed over by a large proportion of our media. Brought more to the fore with TV shows like Ugly Betty, Style Boutique on the Nintendo DS follows a similar world of high styling and high prices - all be it in a rather cutesy cartoon way.
This game is aimed at young adults or teens, although the box design gives it a much more grown up feel. Having only one six year old daughter I think Style Boutique would be beyond her capabilities in terms of reading all the text. Apart from this, the game isn't that difficult and with a little help I'm sure she'd enjoy choosing outfits for people to try on. Other go for a less serious and more flexibile approach though, she already enjoys creating her own garish designs in Barbie Fashion show on the DS.
