Awesome for Potter fans

Any Harry Potter fan will benefit and love this website.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1):

Unless information overload is a deterrent, HP-LEXICON is a "prefectly" (Potter pun intended here) good website for kids to find all they could ever want to know about the world of Harry Potter. Google ads are on the main page, there are several links to Amazon for purchase of Harry Potter books and there is a store where kids can buy HP-Lexicon garb. However, commercialism has a soft presence on this site; the focus is on the facts and lots of them!

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.
