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.

A Lot or a Little?

Haven't used this in a while.

The reviewer said that language, violence, sex Drinking/Drugs/ smoking, and language, wasn't present. but you can indeed talk about violent stuff. You also can indeed talk about sexual stuff. You can indeed talk about People taking drugs, smoking, and drinking. And not to mention you can swear in skypes. I don't really see consumerism as a problem as long as your child knows not to buy anything without checking first. And if your child doesn't know that then don't get this app for them.
