A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this creepy virtual doll dress-up site mixes sexy dolls with Dora the Explorer and Michelle Obama. Dressing up a virtual teen in a burka and string bikini bottoms or a young boy doll sexily posed in only underwear doesn't fit a site that bills itself as containing "child-friendly content." Even more yucky, the ads run the gamut from hair replacement, platform boots, Internet games, laundry detergent, Disney movies, and Harry Potter. From the range of age-inappropriate advertising, it's hard to tell whether the site creators are targeting children or adults.
Is it any good?
This site is not good for kids, despite the "child-friendly" veneer. Including a few age-appropriate dolls, like Miley Cyrus and Michelle Obama, and child-friendly games with tons of sexualized dolls and ads geared for adults sends confusing and negative message to children about body image, about Internet safety and about sexuality in general.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about why sites like this that look like they're made for children may not be exactly what they seem. Discuss with your child your responsibility for keeping them safe in mind and body on the Internet as in any other "real" place in the world.
