Inappropriate - easy for big kids to abuse

The emotions and sounds when repeated (which many of the characters do) seem sexual - I thought it was inappropriate for my 5 year old.

This title has:

Too much sex

You Gotta Pay if You Want to Play

My 9-year-old daughter got 'hooked' by the initial free play time, but suddenly many features "stopped" working. She had no idea that the features she used yesterday would no longer be available today - unless we paid for it! I will not support a website that preys upon unsuspecting children and their parents so shamelessly. Don't walk - RUN - away before your child gets a taste of the fun and tries to strongarm you into paying.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

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

KUNG FU PANDA WORLD is an immediately engaging, easy-to-follow virtual world from the makers of the Kung Fu Panda movies, Dreamworks Studios. While younger kids may need some help reading and deciphering some elements of the site's more complicated features, most games are easy enough to catch onto with little instruction, and clear directions are offered for first-time players. Players float from area to area on a cloud, Crouching Tiger-style, as they are sent on quests that become more difficult as they advance. Thankfully, this site is less focused on shopping and decorating virtual spaces than other similar virtual worlds. On the downside, some players can get bothersome with the options to make a lot of noise and jump around with no real point, but other players can move away from that sort of player or even report a problem player. Players using the free trial get access to the beginning levels of the game and can still chat and interact with others, while paid members get access to higher levels and exclusive areas of the virtual world.

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.
