Hello Kitty Online isn't just a game. It has intergrated a social website into the game as well. Kids signing up for Hello Kitty Online also get a personal Hello Kitty Online email and blog. By clicking on a friend's character in-game, kids can email them, or view their blogs and uploaded videos. In the game portion, there's plenty to do in Sanrioland. Unlike most MMOs where the gameplay involves killing, in this MMO, kids have to learn skills and complete quests to advance in this game. The little combat that there is consists of whacking cartoon characters until they are stunned or fall asleep; and the only reason to whack them is to gather materials from them for other tradeskills, to complete quests, or to collect them as pets. This is a refreshingly sweet MMO.

Online interaction: There are many Game Masters in game to guide players and create a cooperative and fun atmosphere, but the game has open chat which can lead to not so positive experiences.

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.
