I wish this were an April Fool’s joke, but it’s not: there’s a new iPhone/iPad app for girls called “Room Decoration For Girls.” Really. This room-decoration game lets girls apply their imagination and creativity to design a room using five themes. It’s designed for young girls who love dress-up and makeover games. Or so says the developer. Personally, I’d rather have kids practice their real-world design chops, or better yet, have a girls’ game that doesn’t stereotype so hard.
The game’s decoration options span five themes: Princess bedroom, kids bedroom, Christmas room, kids bathroom and palace garden. The Princess bedroom includes: wall and ceiling color/wallpaper, mirror, bed design, floor color, window, lights, dressing table, rug and wardrobe. The Kids bedroom includes: bed type and design, lights, photo frame, toy, wardrobe, rug, floor, table, wall color/wallpaper and window. The Christmas room includes: Christmas tree, fireplace, wreath, gifts, rug, window, floor color/design, wall and ceiling color/wallpaper and chair. The Palace garden features: castle, tree, bridge, pathway, butterflies, plants, path and river. And the Kids bathroom has: lights, towel, toy, tub, floor, washbasin, mirror, window, wall, soap, shampoo and rug. No poop is included, but it may be available later as DLC. Yes, that part’s a joke.
