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.

Beware of gacha games like this.

Don't bother with this app. Especially if you plan on spending money on it. I was just recently banned indefinitely (forever) for a petty refund of $12. It was only an accident too. Support won't answer me back or show any human compassion, that people can make mistakes. I've gave this game nearly $5000 of my hard earned money. Now I've lost all of that. Wasted money on a game, that could care less about its players.

Great app for 10 and up Line app not line play

Line is a great communication app and social network app there is no posting or anything it’s just direct message that’s it! So maybe 9 year old’s should not have it but 10 and up! Is fine

This title has:

Easy to play/use
