Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (12):

MONONAS features five main characters, the Mononas -- who, according to the site, are "all-American girls with a Latin flavor." The characters emphasize having a positive outlook and self-confidence. However, although the general theme gets a thumbs-up, the site doesn't really offer all that much to do. You can listen to or download a few original songs with a self-empowerment theme; you can also upload your own song (although it doesn't appear any users have yet). The site also features a matching game and simple dress-up game and functionality that lets you create a Mononas-like avatar for your profile. The interactive blog section, which has just over a dozen posts and only a few comments, doesn't offer much more content. However, there is hope for Mononas: The characters' profiles say they'll be starting to write regular diary entries soon -- which would at least offer users more to read.

Online interaction: Users can view each other's profiles, which don't contain any contact information, but aside from commenting on posts other users have made in the Let's Talk section, interaction is minimal.

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.
