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.

everyone thinks this is bad but its not

If your so worried then play the game on steam or don't look at ads or just buy anything then the app removes ads.

Warning!! Purchases, video ads and app downloads required to advance to higher levels

When we first got this game, I was a fan: it's cute, musical, etc. But recently we found that my son couldn't progress without buying currency ($1 for 500,000 coins), watching ads and/or installing apps for diamonds. The app download choices are bizarre. You earn "diamonds" for downloading apps like twitter, McDonald meal specials, tax filing, games, etc. At a certain point, diamonds are needed for monsters and achieving goals to move to the next level. The one video ad I watched was a 30 second ad for a game app. I watched to find out what is going on with this game and also to see if that would unblock progress. It didn't--by watching the ad, we "earned" a discount on buying coins (double the coins for $1). I don't know whether the game has changed or whether the issue only surfaces at higher levels. I would not have gotten this game had I known this was coming. My son got really into the game, avoided all the ads/downloads/purchases, and then finally got stuck. Bad experience.

This title has:

Too much consumerism
