A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
The game encourages you to work with others to accomplish goals.
Positive Role Models
You play as a toon who is trying to restore laughter and color to Toontown. You need to cooperate with others to accomplish this laudable goal.
Ease of Play
Very easy to play and the game comes with great tutorials.
Violence & Scariness
There is fighting but it involves throwing creme pies and using squirt guns. The humorless robots will blow up when too many gags are used on them, but it is done in an amusing and funny manner.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that at $9.95/month, this game is more expensive than most children's software, but it is constantly growing and changing. It offers a tremendous amount of entertainment that can be enjoyed over several months. Parents should monitor their child's continued interest in the program to determine how long they want to subscribe to the game. Many parents have enjoyed playing this online game with their kids. At times, other kids can be rude in how they use the drop-down menu phrases, or by ignoring or running away from you, but most experiences are positive ones.
Is It Any Good?
Part of the fun of playing in Toontown is that it is constantly evolving and changing. In December 2003, Disney introduced the first Cog Headquarters (Cog HQ) neighborhood to Toontown and since then, there have been many more. The Cog HQs adds depth and complexity for experienced players -- those who have been playing long enough to have amassed about 60 or more laff points.
This virtual world is an exciting place to explore not only because it constantly offers new puzzles, games, and activities but also because it's fun to play with others while saving this world from robotic destruction. Families can check out the free portion of the game before committing to the full subscription membership.
Online interaction: Players are limited to drop-down messages unless they exchange friend codes off-line, so you can only live chat with people you actually know.
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.
