It's a small -- but fun -- world of educational activities.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Kids can learn concepts in math, astronomy, and geography on Karma's World, an educational site that follows the adventures of Karma and friends. Karma's World is divided into three areas: Funky Bubble Land teaches about fractions, Spacetacular Station introduces the planets and other astronomy concepts, and Neon Dreamland has geography content focused on Mexico and Tanzania. Kids can also learn life lessons about friendship, honesty, and other positive values. Karma's World covers a limited range of subjects, but its activities are fun and educational.
Karma's songs teach positive life lessons about responsibility, friendship, and honesty.
Products & Purchases
There is a "gift shop" (store), but it doesn't appear to be working.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that KARMA'S WORLD is aimed at kids in first through sixth grades. Games, stories, and songs teach educational fundamentals and values like responsibility and honesty. The site was conceived of by tween Karma Bridges and her father, Ludacris, but contains none of the rapper's raunch.

What’s It About?
Dreamed up by young Karma Bridges, Karma's World features games, puzzles, stories, and songs with an educational twist. Funky Bubble Land includes math-related activities, Spacetacular Station teaches kids about space, and Neon Dreamland touches on geography. Each section is divided into content for kids in grades 1-3 and grades 4-6. Kids can listen to the stories as well as read them, and each includes a quiz at the end.
Is It Any Good?
Colorful and upbeat, Karma's World does a good job teaching basic concepts in an engaging way. Most of the games have multiple levels and difficulty settings, making them challenging enough keep kids immersed in the subject matter. The stories -- which feature Karma, her brother, and her dog -- are charming, and the songs are catchy and well-produced. The site's only real drawback is its limited scope; adding more subject areas would make Karma's World bigger and better.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Karma's World mentions the idea of the Golden Rule -- how we should treat others like we want to be treated. How does that apply to kids' online activities?

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.
