The Moxie Girlz dolls have been compared to the Bratz, thanks to their huge eyes and puffy lips, but parents will probably be pleasantly surprised to see that the Moxie Girlz game is not entirely obsessed with looks and fashion -- and that it actually puts forth some great girl empowerment messages. Yes, there's a lot about fashion and shopping in here -- you dress the girls for photo shoots -- but there's a lot more, too. Each of the girls has her own passion, and they constantly stress the importance of being your own person. And the whole idea of a video game in which you edit a magazine is a refreshingly new one.

If anything, the game might feel a little slight (as each issue basically has a cover and two pages), but it's got a nice message that could inspire kids to venture out into their own offline creative endeavors.

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.
