My Son loves this too

My son receives this magazine along with Girls' World and American Girl magazines. He does not need to change his name on the website while blogging and chatting with other girls. He's made friends with one of the girls in real life. He's been getting these magazines for about three years now. It's a great website and magazine for boys like my son and girls too. He understands its for girls only but he doesn't really care at all.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (13 ): might be more appealing as a frequent destination if it included more of the magazine content, or even some exclusive online articles. It does, however, provide a safe place for tweens to give each other advice and share their stories. It also promotes discussion about everything from politics and the environment to favorite movies, TV shows, and places to shop, providing a decent balance of serious and fluffy content.

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.
