Is It Any Good?

Letting the kids visit Hasbro's G.I. JOE a lot like letting them indulge in an ice cream sundae before supper. Sure, you know it's not good for them, but there are definitely worse things. With the assortment of machine guns and assault rifles strewn about the pages, it would seem this site was designed by the president of the NRA. Some of the features are just obvious commercials for the line of movie-related merchandise, but there are some truly fun games that salvage the site. From heart-pounding spy missions to a Family Feud-style trivia show, these online activities are fun, without being overly violent. The site is at its best when it offers up retro comics and kitschy stop-motion action figures, rather than the high-gloss modern Joe.

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.
