What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this is a shopping site thinly disguised as entertainment. But no skills will be enhanced here. There's a parenting section, but most of it was dedicated to getting the parent to buy as well.

What's it about?

As you would expect, BARBIE.COM is essentially an infomercial for Barbie products. Frankly, that's all you should use this site for since the rest of it is boring. No music, simple games that are way below the reading level required to understand how to play them, and bafflingly staid graphics.

Is it any good?

Barbie.com won't hurt your kid, but it won't enlighten or entertain them much them, either. Not much makes sense on this site. Seems like a wasted opportunity given Barbie's eternal popularity.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the importance -- or lack thereof -- of being trendy and always having a new outfit to show off. How do clothes make you feel? Is it important to run out and buy the new hip shirt or pair of pants?
