UK 'Teen Queens' lose out to their American counterparts in the style stakes!

NORTHAMPTON, UK Thursday 11th December Oxygen GamesTM release the results of a survey of 7-11 year old girls to find out which celeb is most in need of a makeover. Results have shown that Princess Beatrice comes out on top!

The survey, carried out by Dubit on behalf of Oxygen Games, asked a range of girls aged 7-11yrs which celebrity they thought was in most desperate need of a make-over and it won’t come as a big surprise to hear that Pixie Geldof came a close second behind Beatrice in the poll, with a quarter of respondents (25%) believing she could do with some style advice and a revisit to the make-up palette!

“The survey highlights the fact that young British girls have strong ideas about fashion and make-up. Now they have the chance to unleash their creativity and try out their preferred styles with help from the MyGames range (My Make-UpTM, My Dress-UpTM and My Secret DiaryTM). Perhaps Pixie and Princess Beatrice could benefit from some makeover advice from these style-savvy respondents!” said Emma Jenkins, Oxygen Games.

The MyGames range is available on the Nintendo DSTM and can be played alone or socially, as it’s easy to hold make-over parties or chat securely to friends via MyGames Chat.

My Make-Up is like having a whole makeup box in your Nintendo DS™, in every colour you can imagine! You can play with make up, brushes and creams to makeover, pamper and facepaint yourself and your friends. Once you’ve finished the makeover you can save it in your photo album and even send it to friends with My Dress-Up to complete a whole new look– clothes and the perfect make-up!

My Dress-Up lets you play in your very own digital dressing-up box. After checking your messages to see who needs your help to create a new look, dress up your friends for special occasions and parties or even invite them to a dress-up party and rate each other on your styling skills.

My Secret Diary lets girls take the traditional locked diary onto the Nintendo DSTM, with password protection to keep little brothers out! You can set reminders for special events like birthdays so you don’t forget to buy a present and record all of your thoughts.

The MyGames series is fully interactive and the exclusive‘MyGames Chat’ is available on all three games. You can host parties, receive messages or just sit back and chat with all of your My Make-UpTM, My Dress-UpTM and My Secret DiaryTM friends over Nintendo DS Wireless Communication.

The MyGames are available to buy from all major retailers now!
