Marapets was a cool site then....

This site was neat years ago when it was newer they had cool give aways for real life items like a Nintendo ds then the owners greed took over, the events used to be new and exciting then they just start having the same events with no interesting new ones. they used to add new games every week or few weeks down to never adding new games they took away daily high scores which was the only thing that made the games any fun. SOME not all staff are lame they judge too fast and punish people without communication including the owner then hardly say sorry when they one who are wrong. just try and undue the punishment they wrongfully gave you all while still treating YOU THE CUTSOMER crappy... the site sometimes has no staff online ive seen lots of hacking scammers and trolls

A pet site that is no longer fun for anyone

It used to be a really good site until they started making way too many changes(The only good change was getting rid of that alcoholic faerie). There's no educational value, and role models and great messages are non-existant. The owner of this site can't even fix the broken avatar system,plus there's a racist pet minion on the website. For some unexaplained reason,you can murder your pets by having the Decapitating Faeire use a guillotine on your pets. All this adult type stuff is just so out-of-place and terribly odd for a site that lets kids join-things like alcohol and guilotines are better suited for adults only websites. The fun has practically been drained from this site. It's no longer easy or fun to use,and there's way too much greed and consumerism. If you want a GOOD virtual pet site,go with Neopets, Neopets Modern or PowerPets.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (21 ):
Kids say (38 ):

Virtual worlds area dime a dozen these days, and unfortunately, this one doesn't cut it. Besides having not much to do, kids will probably get annoyed by the constant solicitations for donations (you can pay via credit card or cell phone) which in a Catch-22 situation, also gets users a few "extra benefits, items, and rewards." Users must care for and feed their virtual pet or it will die; but that just typically involves answering a question about whether or not you want to feed your pet. When traveling through the site, you stumble upon some food, but nothing really happens. This activity, like the rest of the site, is low on interactive fun.

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.
