Horrible site for kids

I find it horrible because it just gets boring after reaching twelve and you can't do anything.The membership cards cost way to much were we live to pay for them, you could probably buy a book considering how much it costs its price is about equivalent to a hardcover book.Although its bad, I'm happy my kid stopped playing super secret because she found a much more fun, safe, great, and educational website called Ourworld!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (19 ):

SuperSecret is a fascinating MMO for tweens and teens. Its theme about modeling real life is something tweens will find compelling. The quests require players to do good things and are easy to find by talking to nonplayer characters indicated by names typed in blue. The world is artfully drawn and each of the over 30 locations features a different musical theme. Kids choose from 20 ethnically diverse avatars that they can modify through hair styles and clothing choices. Humor is present throughout the game, and players can even send each other gag gifts. Plus, unlike other virtual worlds where the minigames can be hit or miss, SuperSecret licenses popular Flash games. As a consequence, these are games that kids want to play.

SuperSecret is a great way for kids to learn how to play in a virtual world. It is a good fit for kids who have outgrown the mega-popular virtual worlds of Club Penguin and Webkinz but aren't ready for the more sophisticated online games of World of Warcraft or even the social networking sites of Facebook and MySpace. We like that all chat is monitored and filtered, and that you can play the first few years of your avatar's life for free to see if you like the game. If you do, to reach the age of 13 and beyond, you will have to purchase a monthly membership of $4.95 (or $19.95 for 6 months).

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.
