Based out of Salem, Massachusetts, Fashion Playtes was created to give girls a way to order custom clothing they designed. Many children are not given much say in what they wear. Through FashionPlaytes, girls with good taste can design and order their creations (with the help of a parent or guardian, of course) and actually wear the garment. Fashion Playtes offers many customizable options and even holiday themed embellishments and accessories. Today, Fashion Playtes gives girls all around the world a chance to make and wear their own fashion designs.
Some clothing websites offer a limited amount of customization (such as a personalized name or color choice). FashionPlaytes gives girls a way to go beyond a few subtle customizations. Each garment can be designed with rhinestones, ribbon, and other accents to create something she’s proud to wear. Many options are available and the garment selection is vast, spanning tops, bottoms, denim, fleece, and dresses.
The FashionPlaytes website caters to their young female audience. The site features plenty of pink, purple, and peach, with a few other colors thrown in to form an eye-catching contrast. The Fashion Playtes logo includes a pink dress, button, and flower. Mousing over the rounded navigation tabs at he top of the home page produces fun sparkly stars. Overall, Fashion Playtes has created an atmosphere of fun and creativity to encourage girls as they make their own wearable clothing.
A parent or guardian can sign up by clicking on the pink “Login” link found at the top right hand corner of the homepage. This takes the user to the login page, which includes a blue “Join” button. The FashionPlaytes registration form asks for a nickname, password, age, date of birth, parent email address, secret question and answer, and country.
FashionPlaytes allows users to create an account for free. Logically, this is a good choice because at the end of the day, Fashion Playtes is a retail website that wants to sell products. Users can create their garments and order them. The amount of money spent on the site hinges entirely on how many orders are placed and how many garments are purchased. The parental figure of the user determines how much is spent on FashionPlaytes.
FashionPlaytes is definitely intended for young girls. The ideal user is a little girl that likes clothing, especially the typical pink and purple often associated with girls. The accents are primarily very feminine, including rhinestones and pink and purple trims. There are many design options though, at least from a child’s standpoint. Overall, the site offers a great way to give little girls the opportunity to be creative and wear something they made. Currently the site offers an inexpensive flat rate shipping in the United States, which mom and dad can also appreciate.
