unapropriate for kids under 14 for sure!!!!!!

dont really like it for kids under the age of 12. once i went onto zwinky with my child (shes 11) and there was alot of sexual content such as "123 to have smex with me", or "123 to smex me" they also try to alter unapropriate words such as "betch", or "fhuhckhing."

If you're looking for a simple place to chat with newly found best friends, this site might just be the place for you -- as long as you know that this virtual world does come with some problems. It's too bad that there aren't more games and that most of the ones that do exist are quite silly and boring. And, you can go through your hard-earned cash in no time at the mall where you pop into stores that sell everything from surf wear to punk gear. The best part of the shopping experience is that you can try things on before buying them.

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.
