Is It Any Good?

As far as money-management websites go, bankaroo is pretty charming. The design is inviting, and simple, encouraging language makes the prospect of maintaining a bank account less intimidating for kids. However, there's no real instruction to be found; an About page only introduces you to the admittedly awesome creators of the site, an 11-year-old girl named Danielle and her entrepreneur dad Etay. There is a forum, but it doesn't contain a FAQ, only a few unanswered questions from users. However, the interface is so easy to use that you shouldn't have too much trouble after clicking around a bit. Bankaroo is a beautifully designed site that can really be fun for both kids and parents to use, but a little more guidance will help everyone get their money matters sorted.

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.
