Cancelled Auto Renewal

I brought up the site to send a Thanksgiving cards to family members this year. I was terribly disappointed in the poor quality content. The selections used to be funny, but some of the humor was downright raunchy. I couldn’t find one Thanksgiving card with appropriate sentiment for my grandchildren or elderly; I couldn’t even bring myself to open the offensive card depicting the Last Supper. I hadn’t used the site in a couple years, and the the auto renewal is obnoxious. Now I’m waiting to see if the auto renewal cancellation actually works. I’m OUT!

Do not sign up for a paid account

Do not sign up for a paid account. I have been trying to cancel since 2018 and it is 2022. Jib Jab still continues to auto renew every year. Every year I have to fill out a refund form and request cancelation. It must be their business practice to continue auto renewal in hopes people won't notice the charge.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (7 ):
Kids say (5 ):

Plug your family's faces into the disco or hula dance video, and there's fun to be had many times over at JibJab. But there's also quite a bit of questionable content interspersed with the family-friendly videos, cards, and images. More than 170 comedians, writers, artists, musicians, and performers have created over 1,200 titles in the JibJab library, and their creations run the gamut -- from snarky and silly to rude and crude. There are even some violent animated videos that come with a cautionary statement about their gratuitous violence.

JibJab can provide a good deal of entertainment and some truly original sendable creations. The "starring you" videos are especially fun, and younger children will get a kick out of seeing their faces animated in such a way. But parents may want to keep an eye on exactly which videos and cards their older children are interacting with. Hallmark it ain't.

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.
