Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Evil scamming kids and horribly put together game that does not work properly and crashes continously

First of all, the customer service is TERRIBLE! I play many online games such as World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy online, and they have customer support to solve problems that arise. This is not true at all for Animal Jam. All you can expect to get is automated messages that do not even begin to address your current issue. They allow adults to make in game art of "furries" and it is so VERY inappropriate for children. They allow scamming, and they even promote this "kid's" game on social media websites where children have no business visiting in the first place. They give out items on youtube and instagram, so children like mine have no access to these giveaways because any smart parent will keep their kids off social media. All this company Wildworks cares about is their profits. They repeatedly let child information get leaked to the dark web through hacks and security breaches. Only the famous people who promote their game on social media ever have their stuff reimbursed. Regular gamers like my children do not stand a chance because the adults have overtaken these games. I do not want my children associating with pedophiles, but this game is a breeding ground for pedophile abduction. Please help me do something about this HORRIBLE game that entices 7-12 year olds to go onto social media to win prizes. The bad get rewarded and the good get punished. Kids who play this even want to commit suicide because of some scammer taking their items. My own daughter expressed that she wanted to die because she spent all these years working up to the items she has in game only to have them stolen again and again. This is unacceptable and the game needs to be shut down.
