I used to love Bakugan when I was 7! It's awsome!

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (7):

On the Cartoon Network animated series, Bakugan is filled with angsty adolescents. The Web site loses some of the show's quirky spirit, given over to the promotion of the Bakugans toys. For serious fans of the show who also really like the card-trading and collecting aspect, the Community area is the most fun, because it mimics the best aspects of the real-life experience and lets fans enjoy it together.

Online interaction: The Bakugan community is very passionate but the forums are moderated for language or abusive behavior.

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.
