Parents' Choice Foundation: Reviewing Children's Media Since 1978

Style Savvy Trendsetters

Style Savvy Trendsetters

Spring 2013 Video Games
Ages: All Ages
Price: $39.99
Gaming System: Nintendo 3DS

In Style Savvy: Trendsetters, players manage their own boutiques, compete in fashion contests, manage employees, purchase inventory, and customize the interior and exterior of the shops. There are even apartments to furnish and decorate for variety and extended play. Although the storyline itself is a simple one, the game features lots of options. There are 21 men's and women's brands and over 12,000 unique styles, tops, jeans, shoes, and accessories. Avatar choices are available, just not overwhelming. But there's not a Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, or Dior among them, as avatars are limited to female designers.

In an industry in which the media headlines first-person shooters and violent action titles, Style Savvy offers a fun alternative.
