With the recent surge in the popularity of online games, several new genres have popped up. One that continues to contain momentum is games for girls. It is fast evolving from being just a genre into a full-blown, parallel gaming world, as more and more girls get to experience the wonders of online cooking, dusting, cleaning and other household tasks. The advent of Flash brought with it a revolution, and this genre is just another offshoot of that. Today there are portals dedicated entirely to girls’ games, where girls can make accounts and get going.
Cooking games require them to prepare dishes choosing from a wide range of ingredients, toppings, sauces, etc. The steps that need to be followed and the order that they need to stick to, make such games a very good experience for young girls who are to go ahead and make it a routine to cook for the house. Many women have now begun preferring such games over real-life experiences for their young girls, because games eliminate the risks of burns and so on. Other games that girls enjoy playing include dressing up little miniature characters or dolls, choosing the right accessories for them, and using make-up to make them look more attractive.
Parents search for games that can be played online, and introduce their little girls to them, so they can stimulate their brains by practicing cooking, dressing and so on. Fun and excitement is guaranteed for your little kid when they begin playing, because there are no accidents to be afraid of, and no hard work to be done.
A responsibility rests on the parents’ shoulders though, if the benefits of online games have to be channeled on to their children. Here are a few advises for parents looking for good games for their little girl to enjoy:
- Visit blogs. There are many review websites which review all the latest games, whether online or console ones, so you can know what professionals have to think about each game before going on to play it. Some sites even have links to great games. Keep an eye out for blogs that provide you with links to games that are great for girls.
- Play each game yourself first. It will be best if you can make yourself acquainted with each game you choose for your girl to play, because you’ll be able to guide her better, in order for her to enjoy the game to the maximum. Once she gets older, however, this will probably be reversed, with you becoming the student and your little girl, the instructor.
- Check before setting up account. If a website asks for too much of personal data, you need to make sure it’s not a scam before you put in valuable information. Sensitive information should not be handed over to forums that are not trustworthy. Also, if you find a website to contain a lot of scam, go for another website. This one is probably unsafe.
- Choose games that are suitable for your little girl. There are games that may contain certain levels or steps unsuitable for little children. In case you’re worried about that, you must make a point of playing each game yourself before introducing your child to it. This will help reduce any doubts that you may have.
