A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Oh my god...this site promotes shopping and fashion.
Products & Purchases
It's obvious this site is run by Mattel. On every page there's a link to shopping pages and things to buy.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while this site provides fun games for younger girls about fashion and such, it's run by Mattel and there are plenty of areas for product promotion. On every page there's a link to shopping pages and things to buy. Let your kids log on, and you can bet you'll be hit up for a Barbie or Polly Pocket doll.
Is It Any Good?
It's clear this site is managed by Mattel. That's because there are countless areas where products -- from Barbie dolls and accessories to user-designed Polly Pocket tee-shirts -- can be bought.
That said, if parents are willing to overlook the material goods splashed on every page, the site does offer fun, interactive games sure to delight not-yet-tween girls.
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.
