Express your fashion sense with Dress The Monkey - Fashion Monkey

Apalon's little iPhone game, Dress The Monkey - Fashion Monkey, is a relaxing fashion game with the only goal of dressing up your monkey.

  • Make up an unusual outfit for one of the four adorable characters: Rebel, Princess, Sage, and Granny
  • Be in control of just about every aspect of a model’s look, including hair style, eyes and skin color, and even mood of your virtual friend!
  • Take advantage of the large collection of different accessories: hats, wigs, scarves, bows, glasses and more!
  • Choose fancy backgrounds for your monkey: Sunny Jungles, Icy Forest, and more!
  • Share your monkey via email, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or save it as wallpaper!
  • Find additional “packs” of accessories and backgrounds that are available through the built-in store

Although primarily targeted towards children, I enjoy playing with this app. I like cute little cuddly things, and it's fun dressing up my little monkey. My favorite feature is that in addition to accessorizing, I can choose a facial expression for my monkey that matches my personal mood. Such a great little time killer.

Dress The Monkey - Fashion Monkey is available for free with optional in-app purchases. Screenshots after the break.
