Anne Andrews, Founding Partner of Andrews & Thornton, involved in the suit, emphasized the misplaced trust in Roblox, comparing its popularity to trusted brands like Barbie and Lego. She stressed the necessity for parents to understand the risks in Roblox’s metaverse, emphasizing that spending Robux means spending real parental money.

Roblox, claiming robust safety measures, reportedly fails in monitoring inappropriate behavior. It is challenging for parents to keep track of their children’s spending activities due to the lack of transparency of the platform.

Recent SEC filings from February 2022 revealed that 60% of Roblox users are under 16, with 23% aged between 9-12 and 22% under 9 years old.
