Safety While Surfin’!

OMG!!

I abso-TOTAL-lutely love talking with all of you, my BBFs (Best Bratzies Forever), over the Internet! Cloe, here, and it’s fo’ realz rad to be able to catch up with all my mains, who live all around the world! The Internet is an ah-mazing place, but you Bratzies must remember, staying safe is the key to having fun!

In my cheerleading squad, I had to learn all proper safety precautions so I didn’t hurt myself mid-cheer. No one likes to suffer an injury. Super-chanting B-R-A-T-Z would be way less awesome if I had to cheer while wearing a neck brace!

Security online is just as important. Lucky for us, safety is always stylish. Here are some tips on how to have a crazy cool time on the Internet and stay safe while surfin’.

1 – Never use your real name on the Internet. When creating usernames, make up fun nicknames to go by. If you have to put numbers in your username, don’t use your birthdate or age. My username is: Angel14. Angel is after the nickname my BBFs call me, and 14 is after the jersey number of my favorite soccer player, Abby Wambach!

2 – Never give out your home address, phone number, school name or passwords. This information is supposed to stay super secret. If anyone asks you for your real name, home address, phone number or secret passwords, sign out of the website ASAP! It’s not cool to ask kids for all their deets.

3 – Never agree to meet someone you met on the Internet without asking a parent first. Even if the person is a girl your age and has some super sweet and totally free make-up to give you. If one of your online friends asks you to meet them in the real world, let an adult know ASAP. Your parents will want to meet your cyber-sister online before deciding whether it’s cool to hang in person.

4 – If anyone starts using nasty language or says something that makes you uncomfortable, sign off immediately. A Real Bratz is never mean, even online. Instead of spending time talking to the rude dude, spend your time finding a new friend! Or coming over to the Bratz blog and talk to us! I always LOVE hearing from you!

5 – Just like you don’t want others to be mean to you, you should never be mean to others. Even online, please use nice language and be kind. Lately, the Bratz and I keep hearing stories about cyber bullying. Not cool, cyber bullies. Not cool.  Real Bratz stay positive, stand up for friends and never gang up on someone else. Even when they can stay anonymous on the Internet. If you see foul language or cyber bullying, tell an adult. The Internet should be a fab-fun place for everyone!

I know all these rules can seem totally lame because sometimes you make super awesome buddies online and you want to give them your information. I have a ton of fab friends that I’ve met on the web, but I still always make sure to play it safe. If you want to break any of these cyber safety rules, ask a parent first. They can determine if the situation is safe for sharing or not!

Now that we’ve gone over all the rules for safe cyber surfin’, I’m super psyched that you and I can hang out together in a safe online environment!!!

Do you Bratzies have any other tips I should know on how to keep out of harms way while browsing the web?

I was thinking of changing my username. Do you awesome Bratzies have any new username suggestions for me?

Love ya lots!

  1. Ann again! Or Vernon….Anyways These are some awesome tips! I dont understand why people do that? You always have the right thing to say cloe! Also,How come there hasnt been a bratz doll house for 2013? I need one badly! I did some research and found you made a doll house back then. Do you think you could make one now? Also I have been waiting for the reply on Jades recent post. Is it hard being famous?

  2. Thanks, Ann! Glad you like the tips! And I hope you follow them.

    I don’t think we have a new house coming out just yet.

    Sometimes it can be a little tricky being famous; but we Bratz are really grateful for the fame because we can use it to spread the word about changing the world, one Real Bratz at a time. Do you think it would be hard to be famous?

  3. Yes I do think its hard. Knowing that fans write to you. You have to reply because you want no feelings hurt.You also have to do alot of work. Also another question! How did you get the name bratz? I also came up with a name for another bratz girl to be added to the group. Its Sonya! They call her sunshine because she light up the place everywhere with daziling fashions! Do you like the idea?

  4. Hi Dana!
    Just like it said in my blog, it’s not very safe to put your age on the web. But since it is already widely known, I will break the rule and tell you that we are in high school. Having an internet presence is really important to us, but because we are so young, internet safety is a must!

    xoxo

  5. Hi, Ann!

    We LOVE writing back to all of our fanz! Sadly, we just don’t always have the time to get to everybody.

    What I LOVE even more is how creative you are. Sonya sounds like a rad chick. Keep up the awesome work. I’m so impressed by you!

    xoxo, Cloe

  6. Hi Bratzies! Thank you very much for the internet safety tips! Cloe, I >3 you! I never share personal info online, either. I always make sure that I am on a super duper safe and awesome site like yours! I hope that you like this comment and reply back!
    Thanks for reading!
    Sincerely,
    your biggest fan EVER, blondieboo15

  7. Hey cloe it is me lil ms.myterious and i say girl u rite. But how about if u already know that person in the real world,is it still safe ? And whoever reads this blog please coment”love bratz :-)”so i know how many cool poeple read this super cool helpful blog. I say whoever reads this fabu blog is beautiful in any way. But that doesnt matter read or dont read this blog we are all beautiful in every way every body all over the world. ;-)

  8. I have a blog, too! Just like yours, Bratz! But I never post personal photos or info that no one needs to hear.

  9. Thank you! I think I can actually take one of my dolls and make sonya! Question! When making the doll and you accidentally make a mistake,what do you remove it with? Im thinking of removing the facepaint,paint the skin color, use paint for the face paint, and then make my own clothing for the doll. What do you bratzies think? The group should be called Bratzoniez! (I want No prize for me if I get picked) :)

  10. I was cyber bullied on a online game………..this girl I didn’t know but I was her cyber friend….we were just talking and she asked me if i was a nerd and I said yes(I’m not really nerdy but I’m good at almost every subject) and she said “ewwww i don’t hang out with nerds I’m really popular ewwwww nerd” then I reported her and sent a message to all my cyber friends for a meating against her!!!!! (Btw I’m a Leo…..sorry if I’m mean)

  11. hey lil ms. mysterious, that was a totally awesome question! sometimes we talk to our BBFs from school on the internet. If you know who you are talking to, it IS a little safer. But if you are speaking with them in a chat room or on an online game, it’s still best to play it safe and hide your private deets.

    Kool?

  12. Wow, Ann! You are soooooo creative! I honestly don’t know the best way to approach making a doll of Sonya, but I’m sure you will figure it out! You’re so smart! xoxo

  13. Sorry to hear you were cyber bullied, Shania. If you EVER feel like someone is being mean or inappropriate, it is always a good idea to report them. Well done you! And don’t feel bad about being a nerd. Being a nerd just means you’re passionate about something, like school or music. We Bratz think everyone should unleash their passion!!

    Power to the nerds!!!

    xoxo

  14. Hey me again! Im about to post a picture of sonya! I hope you see it! Reply please! Also I have an idea for the next vlog you should do! Easter Inspiration! I hope you do it in the future! <3 you bratziez!

    xoxo Me!

  15. Great tips Cloe! I was wondering if there will be any Eitan dolls anytime soon.

  16. I saw Sonya! Sorry, there isn’t a way to respond on Facebook. (I think that is because Vernon has either not officially liked our page or has certain privacy settings which prevent us from commenting.) But she is soooooooooo fab! Epically awesome job, Ann!

    xoxo

  17. Thanks Minli!
    We don’t have any plans to hang with Eitan right now, but you never know what the future holds!

    xoxo

  18. Mornin’ Bratzies!

    Just a reminder that we Bratz pick and choose which posts get to be seen under our blog comments. If you are rude, mean or inappropriately suggestive, we will not post your comment. Luckily, almost all of our totes rad Bratzies are stellar sweet and have thoughtful and interesting things to say. Keep them coming!!

    xoxo

  19. Hey again! Hopefully the problem on facebook will be solved. I dont know whats wrong. Also did you like the idea for your next blog? Easter Insperation. Also did the new bratz in 2013 come out yet? If they did where can I get them. I cant find them anywhere. I looked on sites and found nothing! xoxo Me..

  20. beingblondeislegal can be your new username. It reminds me of you all the time! lol

    Super safe tip: If a link seems suspicious, don’t click it! If the link seems hard to understand, ask a parent. But sometimes, links can lead to bad websites for kids.

  21. Hey,Lezzily here i like your post and i think your right when i get an account i always use nicknames and never tell my information at all and your usename should be cotton14 or something else i really don’t know
    <3 you Bratzies
    Sincerely Lezzily <3 XOXOXOXOXOXOX

  22. That’s awful Shania i’m like a nerd to but not all the way nerdy one person Cyber-bullied me once to and i did the same but i didn’t make a meeting against them but you did the right thing and i’m a Taurus if you asked
    Sincerely Lezzily <3 xoxoxoxoxoxox.

  23. OMG LAUREN!!!! You are totes right!! What AMAZING advice. I’m so glad you shared that with everyone! Yes, if a link seems suspicious, do not click on it. Ask your parents if it’s OK first. People send some really gross stuff around the internet and there is no need to poison your eyes with that stuff! Ugh, gag me!

    I also LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the username suggestion! Thanks so much!!

    xoxo

  24. So glad to hear you stay safe online, Lezzily! I dig the Cotton14 suggestion! Thanks so much!!

    xoxo

  25. Eep!! I HEART how all my Bratzies are talking to each other and helping one another out! Y’all are making me so happy. I love that you are becoming online friends. And I love it even more that you are all MY friend! Stay safe, everyone!

    xoxo!!

  33. Hi MeyganaBratz!
    We hope our store stays open in WoozWorld for a super long time! Just like any store, I guess, it all depends on whether peeps like buying our sweet fashionz. Hope you dig the store! We are super proud of it!!

    xoxo

  34. Hiya Mikayla,

    You have friends! We Bratz are your friends! There is also some crazy-awesome advice from your fellow Bratzies in the comments section of these blogs. Read through them, you will find a ton of new friends and advice on how to get some more!

    xoxo

  35. That’s a great point, Gigi! Most websites only allow one person to go by a specific username. But that doesn’t mean on another website someone else might be going by that very same username! And you never know if someone else is currently using your friend’s username and pretending to be them! That’s why it is TOTES important to always stay safe and never give out information or agree to meet someone.

    Thanks for all the great tips, Gigi!

    xoxo

  36. We are totally your friend, nicelexi2222!! And we are SOOOOOOOO glad you dig our blog!

    xoxo

  37. I think that ur new username should be SportyFabGurl14 cuz ur totally fab, Cloe, and hav a great sporty style!!

  38. You listen to me, KatyPerry100, and you listen good! Real Bratz are not afraid to be themselves! Sometimes it is easier to change to fit in, but if everyone did that, how boring would life be?! By staying true to you, you are being courageous, strong and beautiful! We are so proud of you!

    Jade is wicked smart and kinda shy, and we embrace her for who she is! True friends will love you for who you are.

    And don’t fret about finding friends. WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS!! And we think you are amazeballs!!! The Bratz and the Bratz club will ALWAYS be here for you. I just know when we kick off our new club, you will find a bunch of totes sweet peeps, just like you, to be friends with.

    Keep your chin up! It’ll all get better!

    xoxo

  39. i hate bein 2 smart & shy do you hate me? you can kick my butt if u want 2!!!!!!!!

  40. good news. i made 1 friend but i do not know if i can do a play cuz were doin a play 4 school and im 2 shy. do u really want 2 b bffs with a 10 yr old? bcause i dont think u should and i won cross conty. this girl ho is mean 2 me actully gave me a hug. do u think she is trickin me or actully tryn 2 b my friend??

  41. No way, Morgan! We think you’re awesome! And you should think you are awesome, too!!

    You should join our new club. We’d be lucky to have you!

  42. Of course we want to be your friend, KatyPerry100! The nice thing about being friends with us, Bratz, is that you don’t have to drive anywhere! Just like our Safety While Surfin’ blog says, you shouldn’t meet people out in the real world that you became friends with online. I would NEVER ask you to drive anywhere to be our friend. And you should NEVER meet anyone who asks you to do so!

    We can be besties right here over our webpage! And I’m sure you’ll meet a bunch of other rad peeps to become friends with, too!!

    I don’t know if that mean girl who hugged you was tricking you or not. What do my other Bratzies think??

    Real Bratz try to give people the benefit of the doubt, but we also aren’t push-overs! Maybe it is best to watch this girl’s behavior for a bit and decide after a while whether she is a true friend or not.

    Good luck with the school play! We think you will rock it!! Even if you’re shy.

    xoxo

  43. u think soo?????and what is ur fave soda mine is root beer and seira mist!!!! and nicole the mean girl and 2day she sat with me at lunch!! guess what i won cross contury!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! r u happy 4 me???????????????? & my dad is on dancing with stars did u no that???
