Is It Any Good?

Virtual Piggy is growing, but there are some problems. There aren't all that many stores available to buy from right now, but according to the site, lots more are signing up to be partners. Some instruction is available, but only by video and it's difficult to find. It would be nice if help were more accessible. Virtual Piggy is a good introduction to the experience of shopping online, but don't expect to be able to buy whatever you like. However, the smaller selection may actually be helpful for kids as they begin to navigate the vast online shopping world.

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.
