SOFIA'S WORLD is sparkly and regal; characters wear elegant dresses, wander around stately castles, and practice their posture and waltzing skills. The Disney Junior show's website features lush graphics -- snack treats dance, dishes magically wash themselves and flying fish kiss mid-air -- and remembers kids' avatar and room decor choices without the need for registering or saving. (The site uses a Flash cookie to record avatar and other information.)

Girls who are passionate about the princess lifestyle likely will love the site's virtual world aspects. However, many of the site games and other activities don't offer much educational value. Kids will practice following instructions, thanks to the thorough explanation that precedes each game, but many involve, at most, only basic hand-eye coordination skills. Kids generally won't get a ton of new skills or be able to practice preexisting ones. However, Sofia's World is a fun and safe site for spending a little time -- kids can't chat with each other or email, and they don't have to enter a single piece of identifiable information.

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.
