Is It Any Good?

Fans of shows like That's So Raven and Hannah Montana should enjoy clicking around the ABC KIDS site -- they can email their favorite characters, play games based on various shows, and view videos. Because most activities aren't reading-based, younger kids can use the site. And there are a few clever things to do -- such as a Hannah Montana activity that lets kids click through emails on Miley Stewart's laptop.

However, the rest of the content is pretty basic: a few games for each show, some photos and other information, plus promotional items like downloadable wallpaper and posters. But that isn't likely to keep kids interested for long. In addition, the site navigation isn't always clear; it's easy to accidentally end up on the main Disney Channel site. The content there is perfectly safe -- but for kids hoping to rev up a driving game from The Replacements and then get a Suite Life of Zack & Cody fix, it could be confusing.

Online interaction: Kids can email show characters through the site by entering their first name, age, and state of residence. Emails may eventually appear on TV or online.

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.
