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've been playing this game for over a year now. My 3 children also play. The contents is beautiful and wholesome. Although wasteland and eden can be a little scary for younger children as a "dragon" can come and knock you over. Making you loose "wings". I agree that the chat needs to be monitored but if you have educated your child on game safety then you should be ok. I have litterally hundreds of friends on sky and I've only once had to block a player for bad behaviour. But blocking someone is simple and they then have no access to you. It's a simple game to play so why not load it yourself and hang out with your kids. Hope this helps.

That Game Company is an awesome company. Any real money you spend on their app is used to make our planet nicer. You are not forced to spend any real money if you don't want to. There are no ads! It is a clean game that you can do many fun things with. You can talk to anyone after becoming a certain level with them if you choose. If you are not comfortable talking to strangers then you don't have to at all. I have found that most of the people I do talk to on this game are super nice. I have not found any creeps or stalkers on this game.
