My son loves to play this online game called Club Penguin and just like him i also like and enjoy this game. Club penguin is not an ordinary game. Here kids can chat and hang out with friends in the guise of colourful, penguin avatars. The founders of Club Penguin create an ad-free, virtual world where children could play games, have fun and interact. As Internet specialists and parents, they wanted Club Penguin to be a place they'd feel comfortable letting their own children and grandchildren visit.
How to play this game? First the players create a penguin, waddle around the island of Club Penguin, and engage in a variety of fun and imaginative activities. Players can chat, send greeting cards, use emotes (emotion icons) or choose from a set of pre-defined actions such as waving or dancing. Users can also play games to earn virtual coins which can be used to buy clothing and accessories or furniture for their igloo. New content, such as games and theme parties, is added every week.
In addition to being a great place to play and have fun, Club Penguin is a great place to learn and grow. On Club Penguin, children practice reading, develop keyboarding skills and participate in creative role playing. By accumulating and spending virtual coins earned through game play kids practice math and learn about money management. There's also Club Penguin secret agent and tour guide programs, which help children develop important social skills while gaining a deeper understanding of their role as members of a community.
Club Penguin is free to play, although additional features such as buying clothing or decorating an igloo, require a membership. This has always been my son's request. He really wanted to become a paid member so he could have access to the many features of this online game. Since the game is fun and educational i consider giving him his request. Only with condition that he'll get good grades at the end of the school year.
