Inappropriate Platform

Clicking on the first few creations you can find insensitive stereotypes, inappropriate images, and offensive content. While it may be used for fun, there looks to be no flagging or review of content. I would not recommend- much better places for kids to go where mods actually check for problems. Offensive, anti-diversity products should not be recommended for kids.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Adding layer upon layer of moving images can get pretty trippy, but it's really fun. Mix a '60s-era Twiggy eating an apple in front of a sad clown with a sleepy kitten, or overlay a Jack Kerouac quote on a Mos Def soundtrack, and you've just scratched the surface of options. You can also create more straightforward content -- think I Can Has Cheezburger-type memes. The comic book-style text bubbles help kids easily follow steps to complete a Zeega. More and more, people seem to be communicating online with short bursts of images and text to express a feeling or an idea. Tumblr can be a hotbed of racy content, and it's not filtered for kid-friendliness at all.

The random bank of content found in Tumblr or Zeega's favorites lends itself well to kooky, fun creation but not so much to learning. Technically, it would be nice if you didn't have to play Zeegas frame by frame; an autoplay function would create a more seamless experience.

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.
