Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (1 ):

For fans of Bob and his gang, this site is definitely bookmark-worthy. There's enough variety to keep busy builders happy, while not overwhelming novice users with loads of online bells and whistles. Although it would have been nice to keep the product promotions reserved just to designated banner ads, the site isn't as bad of an ad offender as some, and most ads seem to be for Bob the Builder products.

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.
