I let my 7yr old play, though I don't let him interact with other players which is where problems can arise. Still it doesn't seem to as infested with predators and assholes as Roblox is.

Thanks. Mr. Creeper was one of our main concerns. So you can block the kid from communicating with other players?

I don't know about blocking chat. We just have a good kid that (so far) listens when we tell him not to go into certain areas of games. I dread the coming years when such trust won't likely exist :(

Does he play on a computer, phone, iPad or something like Nintendo Switch?

Better than forkknife...
