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.

i was searching for wings of fire games, most where kind of dull, until i found this.

you can turn off chat because its going to be in your face, nobody talks much anyways, also there is some violence in Qibli`s quest (a wings of fire minigame) but no blood or gore, but weird cheesy "OUCH" sound, you can sadly only talk to three dragons, glory, Qibli, tsunami, i like to chat with all three of them, they say interesting things depending on what option you choose, same with other worlds, there is human moderators 24/7 in home base, my favorite wings of fire minigame is speed wings. good for any age

Factual review and first hand experience

I am an adult parent and was able to sign on and participate as an avatar, including chat. There's no way I would want my child (3rd grader) to be chatting with a potential adult stranger. The chat feature does not stay off when de-activiated.
