Entertaining game for girls.

It was a great game for teen girls and even some adults. Although a bit addictive, like most games, it was a Barbie+Sims type. Very entertaining and I am sad to see it go. Better have my daughters playing this than any other violent game out there.

Is It Any Good?

The U.K.-based MISSBIMBO.COM offers users the chance to create a virtual pet-like avatar -- a female "bimbo" -- and features more than 30 levels, which players can advance through by doing things like changing their bimbo's hairstyle, buying her clothes, and renting her a virtual apartment. The site could teach girls a few positive lessons in a fun way. For example: Playing games helps girls earn online currency to buy things, but also helps boost their bimbo's IQ. Users also need to care for their character by feeding them, potentially encouraging responsibility. However, the site features a cringeworthy focus on weight -- players are told letting their bimbo lose or gain too many pounds could affect her happiness, which isn't a very body-positive message to send teens.

Miss Bimbo also places an eerie emphasis on boyfriends; players are told that men provide a much-needed source of money "just because he loves you." Add in the fact that girls can find out about a number of adults-only topics on the site's message boards, and it might be a good idea to steer teens clear of babysitting their own bimbo.

Online interaction: Users can challenge other users. But the challenges are pretty tame; a crowd applauds your bimbo and another bimbo, and one is chosen as the winner.

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.
