Mum disgusted when she realised her six-year-old daughter was playing in a graphic ‘sex room’ on popular kids game.
Peggy told Kidspot she was watching her six-year-old daughter play computer game Roblox when a ‘friend’ invited her into a private room in the online world.
She quickly realised that the apparent friend was a stranger, and her daughter’s character in the virtual world had been taken into a totally inappropriate space.
‘Luckily, I was sitting next to her and noticed out of the corner of my eyes that one of the characters and breasts so it made me look closer,’ Peggy told the publication.
Peggy took the game away from her daughter and recorded the sexual acts to inform other parents.
‘She had absolutely no idea what she was looking at, but I would hate to think about what would have been said to her.’
Peggy reported the room and it was immediately removed.
A quick youtube search and it seems it is actually pretty common.
Roblox is an online gaming platform where users are able to create their own games.
The app does have safeguards which include parental controls to allow parents to shut-off chat capability, age “visibility” so that parents could easily determine that the settings for their kids are age appropriate, and more stringent chat controls for under-13s restricting a greater range of words.
We have shared numerous warnings before from parents after discovering terrifying chats and messages on the Roblox app - read more on that here.
