Have just banned daughter from moviestarplanet on 2 grounds. 1 - e-safety and chatrooms, and 2- godawful represntations of girls; you create a movie star, and then purpose it would seem is to rate whether you are hot or not based on looks.
So, instead of being a cruel mum, what games can I offer her instead that are fun with positive girls who don't look distorted with long hair and big tits. Age 11, free on-line games, safe and morally appropriate. or have I just dreamed it up that there would be such a thing?!!

Try the one my name comes from: Terraria. Not free but def. worth the £3.99 we paid. You can find it on Steam. It puts you in a world where you can build a house, dig mines, plant trees, make potions. You also have to try to stop the Corruption spreading (purple grass).

In fact, look on Steam full stop.

Minecraft. The default character is male but can be changed to female using a skin.

How about Mass Effect, playing as a female Commander Shepard? Very powerful female characters in this game including the side cast such as Liara and Ashley.
It's rated 15 but reckon it would be ok for an 11 year old to play, as there is not much gore or swearing.
