Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4 ):

Kwedit could be the Internet's next big thing -- or a total flop. Users can buy inexpensive virtual goods online (like virtual cat chow for their Foo Pets) with Kwedit Promise and then pay off their debts with Kwedit Direct -- either by printing out a prepaid mailer and sending cash to Kwedit, or by paying in-person at 7-Eleven stores. It's a fairly convenient transaction -- if you're comfortable sending cash through the mail. But will users actually pay? It all depends on if they care enough about their credit limit and credit score -- and if they feel like they're bound by an honor system.

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.
