I know this is a great opportunity for teens to communicate with each other through personality! Great game!

Is It Any Good?

Registered users can choose from dozens of hairstyles and outfits to create intricate, downloadable MEEZ.COM avatars that move and groove their way through the site's dance club, poolside party spots, and other virtual rooms. Users also can also choose from a wide variety of backgrounds for their avatar. Most things are free, but some cost "coinz," bought via PayPal or a credit card for 10 cents each.

However, some of the site's background options include gambling and party themes that are too grown-up for young teens, and fashions tend to be tighter than what you'd want your "real" daughter to leave the house wearing. The site does get points for diverse facial/fashion selections, but panders to uncomfortable stereotypes with makeup like the "thug" girl look. The personal pages are also a point of concern -- users have the ability to post pretty suggestive photos and direct, inappropriate language. Meez can be a cool, creative outlet -- but only if its users are old enough to live the lifestyle they're designing.

Online interaction: To access the various virtual rooms on the site, users need to create an avatar. The Meez community includes a lot of user interaction -- you can enter friends' email addresses to invite them to join the site, post on more than a dozen bulletin boards, and chat live in the site's various rooms. Users can also add links on their profile to photos and videos. A language filter removes swear words in site message board posts; however, when it comes to profile posts, anything goes.

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.
