Parents be aware

This site looks innocent enough, and the kids can have a lot of creative fun designing outfits and collections. HOWEVER - Parents pay attention to your child's activity on this site. There are users there who roleplay, calling themselves variations of "anon" (in their user names). Some of the content in roleplay is highly inappropriate, bordering on illegal, considering there are so many minors on this website. Its easy for something that starts innocent to go too far. Keep your kids off the social aspect of the site, and they should be alright.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (8):

POLYVORE refers to itself as a social commerce site: Users can view recent trends, bounce style questions off each other, create fashion collages, and shop for clothing and accessories. (Framed art and some furniture pieces are featured, too.) Like Pinterest, Polyvore lets users install a button to their bookmarks tab that makes it easy to add items they like -- complete with tags to identify them -- to their stable of images on the site. You're supposed to be 13 or older to sign up; however, because users can add their real name to their profile and easily connect with complete strangers on the site, parents may want to think twice about letting teens create a Polyvore profile.

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.
