I have been an avid member of the community since 2008, I am now 15 and still play. I have had a few issues with other kids being immature on the sight but now under 12's have a whitlelisted chat that only allows certain words through. This works well. Roblox has a strict anti dating policy as well. Encourage your child to create and script games IN STUDIO and learn about the community.
If you have any issues whilst on the sight you can message "alexdacool300" for some help.
Roblox is a fun and educational game overall. Definately worth playing.
By the way if your child asks for builders club, tell them to make a game that gets 10000 visits first. A difficult achievement that shows they are learning something.
My boys age 7 and 11 like Roblox - never had any problems. Titchy - google 'timesupkidz', one of the best £20 we have spent. Enables you to control how much your children spend on the computer each day and when they have access to it. Has solved all our computer time issues. A one off payment can be used for more than one child. Love it!
Yes it's fine. Never had any problems with it - and they do respond quickly if you have any issues. Ds rather stupidly gave someone his security details and promptly found all his bought stuff had been stolen. The user responsible was banned as soon as ds reported it, and they reimbursed all his stolen stuff within a couple of days.
my DS1 has asked to set up a Direct Debit to pay for etra things on this site - i tried in the past to delete it off his computer but it was buried so deep in the programming i could never get rid of it - this really brings up alarm bells for me so i am really unsure about sending regular money - does anyone have any experience of this company/site?
I've just asked them what they do on it: 'We build houses, we blow up houses, we kill people for money' How does that work? 'You find a game where you get something like a gun or something and then you hit the other person, who are like Lego people, and they sort of fall apart then you get money so you can fly or jump over walls'
My 5 year old has started to play it having seen his brother, 9, play so I hope so! I thought it was just a bit like online lego...? Only thing I say is for them to ignore any links, to press escape if anything pops up and they have good parental controls and browser security in place. Will watch with interest though as I've heard DS1 'meeting' his friends on the site / on different games.
