Children’s virtual worlds are the new indoor playground for digital savvy kids. Along side TV, web & video games, virtual worlds take their place as the latest form of online screen entertainment. Kids take control of an animated avatar in a 2D or 3D space accessed through a web browser or downloaded from the Internet. They contain loads of activities and provide a more engaging and interactive experience compared to traditional media.
Kids start by spending a very long time kitting out their avatar and once fashionably respectable they begin exploring the virtual world. They will click on other avatars to make friends, chat, decorate their homes, adopt a pet, buy loads of stuff with virtual cash and play games/quests along the way. Communities are formed in these virtual societies with rules and regulations, so users live by a code of conduct similar to the real world.
Little Space Heroes is an upcoming Virtual Universe for kids and families. It’s an interactive, online multiplayer game in which kids create their own hero and explore a galaxy full of fun and adventure. The basic version of this family-friendly game is available free of charge with paid memberships providing unlimited access to the entire game.
