A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Although the site is the companion to the TV channel -- both of which foster sedentary lifestyles -- the site makes an attempt to promote active pursuits like soccer, skateboarding, and other sports.
Products & Purchases
Lots of ads for series on the Disney XD channel; advertisers including Lego, Pokemon, and General Mills have been announced.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this site is the companion to Disney's cable TV channel, Disney XD, which offers shows targeted to boys ages 6-14. With customizable avatars, games, and competitions, social networking, and exclusive webisodes, the site is designed to attract (and keep) fans of the shows.
Is It Any Good?
Graphically, the production values on DisneyXD are excellent, and have the look, feel, and quality of the Disney XD channel itself. The games will be a big draw for boys, and the site's creators have done a nice job of categorizing the games so it's easy to find your favorites. Boys will also enjoy the overarching competition of competing for the site's highest scores.
Most likely, if your kids like the TV shows, they'll enjoy the games that are based on the show's characters and premises. And Disney is planning lots of tie-ins to the TV channel. Overall, the site is safe, so the main issue to be aware of is the onslaught of ads and show promos.
Online interaction: Kids can create their own profile and are encouraged to make friends with other kids.
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.
