Presumably, I started researching online girl games to see if they were appropriate for young girls to play. Upon seeing hot pink websites filled with games that require little more than baking cookies and putting makeup on virtual avatars, I was ready to condemn them as silly and somewhat sexist.
But then I started to play.
There’s something unbelievably fun about dressing up a celebrity avatar and walking her around to pose in front of the paparazzi. If you don’t believe me, try it!
Visit GirlsGoGames.com and click on “Popular” to find some of the most ridiculously addicting games online. A coworker and I even went head-to-head in Extreme Florist. He claims that he won, but I’m pretty sure I delivered more roses than him…
I still wouldn’t recommend all of these games for young girls to play (the celebrity outfits are downright scandalous, and there are more educational games out there), but I’ve decided they make a fantastic pastime for moms.
So next time you sit down at your computer with a cup of coffee and 15 minutes to kill, give some girls’ games a try! Or, if you’re already addicted to a girls’ game site or two, post them here to share the fun.
