Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Visitors looking for comprehensive, up-to-the-minute info on the Games will find it here. The profiles of each event are a highlight, providing fun facts, a history of the sport, and photos that capture the athletes in action. If you're looking for content that's specifically designed for kids, you'll have to dig deep -- under Join In, then Education, there's a link to Get Set, a site designed to be used by educators and their students. Adding more interactive content or kid-friendly features to the main site could up the fun factor, but fans will find what they need here to keep up with the Games.

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.
