A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Educational Value

Though A Mighty Girl was created with some educational intent, we don't recommend it for learning. Girls might get exposure to positive messages as they browse the product offerings on the site, but it will be the products, themselves, that provide the true learning opportunities.

Positive Messages

A Mighty Girl sends the message that girls can be and do anything they want! They've curated all sorts of media that will help kids become more confident and empowered in the world.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

While A Mighty Girl contains a vast amount of helpful information on raising confident girls, it is essentially a commercial site that contains links to purchase the products it features. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's a large part of the site.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that A Mighty Girl offers a safe, one-stop shopping experience, featuring media and products that have been carefully selected to promote confidence, courage, and girl power. The site offers products for kids of all ages and is easy to navigate by age as well as interest. As the site is essentially an online shop, it's really a destination for adults looking to purchase items for kids and teens. Parents could browse the site with their daughters to make a wishlist together.

What's it about?

In their own words, A MIGHTY GIRL is \"the world’s largest collection of books, toys, movies, and music for parents, teachers, and others dedicated to raising smart, confident, and courageous girls and, of course, for girls themselves!\" It's a curated collection of products that exists to help parents and kids find positive female role models in media and make informed choices.

Is it any good?

A Mighty Girl is a helpful resource for both kids and parents trying to navigate the challenging world of kids' media. Founders Carolyn Danckaert and Aaron Smith have done an excellent job of bringing together the best and most empowering books, movies, and toys that help instill a sense of confidence and self-reliance in young girls.  

Parents should feel comfortable letting their daughters browse the site (under parent supervision) to pick out their own products and create a wishlist. The site is pretty new, so it's still growing, but it's easy to use and has some really fun features; click the Character Collection tab and you'll get lists of classic female characters from all media. Wordgirl? Yes! Frida Kahlo? Totally! Xena, Warrior Princess? Well, okay.
