Don't let them have your money

They will charge for a "membership" which promises access to special areas. However, the access is not available and they do not respond to emails regarding problems. In fact, they appear to have no tech support available at all other than to relieve you of your money. Just don't pay them anything and you will be okay.

My daughter loved this game, I don't like their customer service.

I love that this game doesn't have the voilence that is rampant in other games. I have had the unpleasant experience of dealing with their customer support. My daughter had just signed up for a free account when some of the accounts/Petpets were mysteriously lost. There was only one mention of this on Petpet Parks News page that said that they were working to find missing pets - nothing about what happened or when it was fixed. I helped my daughter submit an email to the support department. We were referred to their new ticketing system. Not only do the links to track the help tickets not work, on average it takes 6 days for one reply to come back from the only guy who appears to work in their customer support department. Her account is still not fixed and we're two months later and she's moved on to the PlayFirst game Wandering Willows.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (49 ):

This is a colorful, cheerful, fun virtual world with solid safety mechanisms in place that'll surely keep kids engaged. With its collection of fun games, activities, and scripted or filtered chat, kids with adequate reading and computer skills will be able to navigate the site easily. Neocash used to play some games and buy some items at the virtual mall requires real money (via credit card or gift card).

Online interaction: Easy (scripted) chat and standard chat are both built-in ways to keep online interaction positive.

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.
