Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4 ):

This top-notch art and animation site was created by a Massachusettes-based startup company that said it likes to focus on "people, art and the new." It definitely achieves that goal wtih Do Ink. It's refreshing to see an online community that generally supports each other's work, creating and sharing new ways to use online graphics tools. Not only is it entertaining, it also provides technical training to kids interested in the art and technology of digital animation.

Online interaction: Other users can comment on and vote on the art (top vote getters get featured on the site's home page and blog).The site's editors moderate the site pretty hawkishly to ensure that the online interactions are positive or at least helpful.

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.
