The entire content of the site is very kid friendly. Children from 6 and up can find an activity that is suitable for them. Many of the games within Webkinz promote education and are age appropriate.
There is the ability to "chat" with other players within Clubhouse chat rooms. There are two available: KinzChat and KinzChat Plus. In KinzChat members select pre-constructed messages from chat menus. Members CANNOT type in their own messages. In KinzChat Plus messages are limited to words from a restricted dictionary. To enter the KinzChat Plus area, most members need parental permission. The parent can set access controls in the Parent's Area.
Overall, Webkinz is a fun and safe place for kids to get a start at online virtual worlds.
