A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Educational Value

Kids can learn a little bit about some school subject areas. A few games help kids sharpen their artistic skills; practice numbers, addition, and reading; and test their memory abilities. However, many games just focus on finding items, and none really identify the educational lesson. The virtual world, while visually impressive, is fairly small -- and, like the brief character videos, also doesn't provide many learning opportunities. To keep kids interested and coming back, Lalaloopsy will need to add more activities. Kids can practice a few skills on Lalaloopsy, but learning is limited.

Positive Messages

Dolls exemplify positive qualities like working together to get things done and trying your best.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

What's it about?

Kids can play about a dozen games, watch brief videos about the dolls' adventures, or visit a 3-D virtual world on LALALOOPSY -- stopping by characters' homes, a park, and a pond. The navigation is simple enough for younger kids to figure out, as are most of the games, although some instructions can be a little confusing. There's much more of an emphasis on product promotion than on learning; kids can find out a lot about the rag doll line, but probably won't pick up many new skills from their time on the site.

Is it any good?

Lalaloopsy features games, downloadable desktop wallpaper, and information on the Lalaloopsy line of rag dolls -- which, according to the site, have magically come to life. The site is definitely geared toward younger users (the dolls are recommended for ages 4 and up); older kids might not be as interested in the game or dress-up activity. The virtual world within the site also may be a little basic for older audiences. Outfitted as a doll, kids can cruise around the park or pond or visit other characters’ houses, but aside from taking a quick boat ride or hopping on some playground equipment, there really isn't much to do at each location.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Lalaloopsy dolls promote being positive and trying hard. What other positive things do the dolls promote? How can you exemplify their personality traits in real life?
