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 HIGHLY Addicting Game but NOT for little Kids

I have played stardoll since 2012. I am now 20 and still come back to this game once in a while. The bad side are the Users and wasting so much money. Stardoll is all about looks and Fashion. Which means players constantly want new clothes for their dolls, new makeup, new hair etc.. That's what it's all about. And there aren't many ways you could earn stardollars to afford most of those things. (200sd costs about $4 which is only enough for a new hair) Players have spent a lot of their time and money in this game. However, Stardoll likes to permanently delete accounts after 3 months of Inactivity without a warning. Which is the worst part. I do not recommend this game for little kids, Some users chat in a sexual manner and dress inappropriately. There is also a lot of bullying.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

This game changed my childhood in a very good way

I'm a 25 year old women and i played this game when i was a child for 6 years straight, and i don't understand why stardoll has so many negative reviews. My experience was very positive and i cant see how this platform is harmful to children in any way. I started to play this game when i was 10 and had a lot of fun and i didn't came across bad influences at any moment during my time on this game. This game give opportunity for children to create friends in a very safe way, way more safe then social media. I met my best friend on this game and im very thankful that this game gave me the opportunity to meet her there. We both have a very good experience with stardoll and can only talk positive about it. We both payed for a diamond membership account ( right now the name changed to royalty membership i think) and at that time it was 30 euro per 6 month, in my opinion very affordable. I hear critic about parents that the game is too expensive but i find this very strange, nowadays children have all kinds of expensive electronics and brand clothing. I think if you let your child play this game it will influence their lives for the better.
