This is a highly addictive multiplayer online role playing game. The games are fun and both my 8 and 11 year olds love it.everywhere you go there are new places and it is always being updated. Believe me, this trait is not rewarded on the animal jam web site.All parents should be warned before bringing this into their lives that their children will prefer this game over eating, sleeping, exercise, and outings, and you will find yourself saying "no Animal Jam" multiple times daily. I truly think its a good game (I even have my own account that I go on sometimes! If you have sweet, considerate, trusting children who want to go on this site and see animals... They will be exposed to rude, selfish, manipulating children who steal, coerce, lie and use your child to take advantage of, and steal the items they may have. My daughter has been playing animal jam for over a year and we were happy to find a game that seemed safe and where she could indulged her fascination and love of animals.We've had to have several conversations about sex that I wasn't prepared for at the age of 10.
Other things they will learn are: lying, cheating, and stealing, as experienced players take advantage of new players by lopsided trades, and new players give away their passwords and thus control of their possessions to strangers. Well, first off, the players have various short hand for swear words.
For example, your child might be invited to a "stripped club" aka strip club.
