No moderation in Disney's Toontown Rewritten- pedophiles and racists run rampant.

There is so much creative filter-dodging players use to curse and say sexual things in front of each other. I've seen people in the public areas in crowded districts saying nasty things about the palestine-israeli conflict and discussing sexual activities. There are supposed to be CHILDREN playing this. Not only that, but the gameplay becomes toxic fast as you see little kids who don't know the 'meta' being bullied by adults that have played for years. Abuse and toxicity runs rampant even if you disable the speed chat plus. There is little to no moderation in this game, and the moderators that do exist are extremely rude and don't seem to care when emailed. This is not a safe game for kids, or even young teens. Disney's Toontown Online was originally shut down because there were so many bad actors making the game a toxic hypersexual cesspool, and Disney's Toontown Rewritten is no safer. Stay away!

Stay away from this game.

If you care about the mental health of you, or a loved one, I'd stay as FAR away from this game as possible. It's infested with pedophiles, cyberbullies, and overall just filled with terrible people. It's toxic, It's tedious, It's addicting, and It's aged HORRIBLY. There was a time where the game was good for kids to learn strategy and teamwork, those days are gone however. The community itself is no exception. You basically get your reputation completely tarnished if you piss off the wrong people in this community. So if you do decide to play the game; play it for the game itself and not the garbage community that drags it down.

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.
