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.

If you find a better game, don't play this one!

I like the game and have played a bit when I was a bit younger, and still do play with my 9 yro son. But things do get out of hand when he starts saying things like "Mommy, it's the Halloween bash and my rainbow Katsuma needs to go!", and of course, you need to pay for that. I'm not going to say no and have him scream his face off, so I pay the fee. Ugh. I'm not good at this whole 'Saying No' thing. Does anyone else have this problem...

Moshi Monsters

My 6yo adopted a monster, and then started bugging me for a virtual allowance. "Mommy, it's the Halloween Bash, and Rainbow Katsuma needs to go there!" The board where they can talk to other players bothers me, and Freakface is just cruel. (With all the bullying issues in our world, they decide to call a monster FREAKFACE!) The monster talks foolish language, and rub themselves around their stuff like they just got hit in the groin with a baseball!
