4-0 out of 5 stars Okay game
This game isn't that hard to master, but it's best to watch the help movies before you decide to try and write a play yourself. It's hard to navigate the characters and the voices are very unrealistic (experiment with the different kinds you can have- if you have a lot of characters it's easier to understand who's talking). This is a good game for kids who like to write, and it helps because you have visual aids.

5-0 out of 5 stars Much better than expected!
I purchased this game when I was eight years old, and even then I was skeptical of how good this game could be. I assumed limited speech and set possibilities, but I was proved wrong. Today I am fifteen, and I have to admit I still can enjoy this game. There are infinite storyline possibilities, and even though the computer generated voices are not realistic, they are ammusing. I have spent many hours thinking and creating plot lines that range from the normal to the bizarre. There really is no limit in how you're play will turn out. The one problem I have with this game is that sometimes the it skips over dialouge, but that is rare. All in all this is a fun and easy to use game, and I would recomend it from the ages 6 to 12.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Cool
Fun if you want to do an American Girl play, but don't know how to write it. It's fun to direct stuff, and you can put in a microphone to do voices. At least you can in AG Premeire 2. This is fun! I got mine a few years ago; I still like it.

The American Girls Premiere had bad graphics and was not very exciting.The voices to choose from for your play were unrealistic.A small child would be very frustrated with this game because some of the instructions are unclear.Older children would probably enjoy this game,though. ... Read more

If you're a grownup looking for educational and inspiring role models for a girl, look no further. The popular book series has made the jump to software, providing historical background on girls throughout history, from the life story of a freed slave to a bobby-socks wearing daughter of the 1940s who can't imagine any president other than FDR.

The software centers around the dress designing shop, where kids can create historically accurate outfits from boots with spats to frontier bonnets, with the option of hearing the stories behind each item. The dresses can be saved, and even printed, to play with after the computer has been shut down (the game includes paper dolls of each of the six characters).

The concept behind this project is a knockout, and the importance of sewing and seamstressing as women's work--both in financial and social terms--receives excellent treatment. The only thing holding this program back is the small scale of the graphics and the flatness of the color and movement. The art in the software prevented us from really becoming immersed in the world that the girls described. Instead, we were given few choices, with only face-on views of the dresses designed.

In spite of these disappointments, The American Girls Dress Designer offers a great deal for the game's players: the chance to have fun with fashion through the ages as well as the ability to identify with girls from colonial times to the middle of the twentieth century. --Jennifer Buckendorff ...
