A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

Shooter games, war-style battles, and an extremely violent and vulgar adventure-type game.

"F--in Pansy," "Faggot," "Holy Shit," and more.


Banner ads and pop-ups gone wild (including some pop-ups with pornographic photos).

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this site is loaded with innocent dress-up, decorating, and arcade games, but beware: there are surprisingly violent and sexually inappropriate images kids will uncover with a little play time.

Kind of showy

It has some kissing games, games you take care of animals and babies that are injured, and it has pregnant girls in some games. Also, in some princess games, th... Continue reading

What's it about?

Like Girl Game Zone, GIRL GAMES is a collection of games designed to appeal to tween and teen girls. The games are technically hosted on other sites, and clicking on them brings up flashing, animating, talking banner ads, and numerous -- sometimes pornographic -- pop-up ads. While many of the games are "girly" -- dress-up, decorating, cooking, sports, puzzles -- there are action games that entail kissing, battling war-style, and shooting others in the head with a sniper rifle, shotgun, or submachine gun.

Is it any good?

While this is not a site you want your daughter visiting unsupervised, there are a few unique games that are fun to play: Roller Coaster Creator lets kids draw their own coaster tracks and Cooking Show lets you slice, dice, and add ingredients to a recipe. But these games are buried deep under pop-ups and banner ads. Worse, there are subtleties in the games that reinforce gender stereotypes that aren't good for girls. For example, emaciated and underdressed characters, battles to win a boy's love, and kissing contests. If your girls like games, there are way better choices.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what to do if kids click on something that launches a barrage of pop-up windows. Do you want kids to ask for your help if this happens, or close the windows? Make sure kids know where to click to close them and know how to distinguish between ads and games. Do kids know how to use the pop-up blocker on their browser?
