I have a son and daughter. My daughter Sestiva, 10, loves Bratz. The room she shares with her little brother is filled with Bratz everything. We own plenty of the dolls, movies, outfits, sets, accessories, and games!! Bratz is a good thing to play with for Sestiva. She can spend hours playing with her Bratz!! Literally!!

#2 worst doll for girls

Bratz is the second worst doll for girls (Barbie is #1 no doubt) they teach girls fashion. Bratz are slutty and wear too much makeup. Plus I know something most girls and parents don't. How do they get their name? Look at them. They look like brats don't they? Well there you have it!!!! Bratz (disgusted shiver).

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (36 ):

BRATZ.COM feels like a big ad to encourage kids to buy the dressed-up diva dolls (and related accessories). Most of the content -- including doll bios, a Bratz catalog, and TV commercials--centers around pushing the product.

Girls can also register (for free) for the Very Important Bratz Club, which promises special extras -- but they aren't really anything exciting. A couple of the site's games are interesting. One lets girls design their own rock video; another teaches them how to run a business. However, they aren't all as cerebral -- including a love meter that rates your relationship potential.

Overall, the site offers a pretty safe experience; kids can't chat or otherwise interact. However, the emphasis on fashion, appearance and buying a ton of stuff may make parents think twice about encouraging their children to spend much bonding time with the Bratz.

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.
