I suggest this game for 12 and up. Or until your child is responsible enough to handle swear words.

I would say yes. BUT I would recommend supervising your child whilst doing that. Or, like a read from an answer here, allow your kid to only play certain games when you arent playing with your child.

Ignore the people who's literally probably yelling at their screen. I've played roblox for 8 years almost and I think you can let a 8 year old play, just view them a bit and be FUDGING prepared for them to probably find a game that has guns or whatever, there shouldn't be gore or swearing. If you really need to make sure your child doesn't see swearing, you can set an option to make it so that he can't see the chat and can't talk in the chat. So if anything, I'd agree, but I'd watch them.

I actually play this with my four year old daughter and she loves it, and I genuinely enjoy it as well. She is only permitted to play certain games when I'm not playing with her, such as Adopt Me, pet simulator, mining simulator, and Bloxburg, and just a few others. However, she is still very much supervised, as in playing on the tablet while I work, beside me, Games like Meep City are completely out of the question. Meep city, in my opinion, is absolutely not suitable for children under 13. That is where I see the most explicit exchanges, and the clothing is outrageous, and highly inappropriate.
If you are genuinely regulating your child's time and play, they can make some great play friends and even have fun. My daughter clearly doesn't chat, she just uses emojis, and she is not permitted to add friends. Through my permission she may add people . She has added for friends, who I personally witnessed over months, cause absolutely no harm, and we're genuinely just looking to role play "mommy and baby". They have no idea I'm her mother, and they aware my daughter will not respond in chat. Yet, they still always manage to have fun and play a safe game of role playing. If you're looking for a game to safely entertain your child, while they're not directly under your supervision, and they're in elementary school and younger, then I would not recommend this game.
I do let my daughter play Minecraft for a half an hour in her room, with out me in there, because Minecraft can be controlled and monitored, and I much different standard.
Also, I'd defiantly recommend spending about $5 - $10 on Robux, which allows them to buy several clothing items, to dress their avatars up, different hair, and faces, and that way they can customize their character closer to their own self, or just have fun and make their avatar silly. Also allows them to buy the occasional treat in some games
