Social Networking Site for Kids
It has been said that 2007 is the year of Facebook. But with social networking sites popping out of nowhere with fresh concepts like My Mini Life, it is uncertain who will make it big this coming 2008.
Moshi Monsters is a fresh new networking site which targets kids of all ages. Created by Mind Candy who specializes in the development of new types of multi-player online games recently launched the Moshi Monster world.
Our intention when creating Moshi Monsters was to a produce a ground breaking new entertainment experience that would be fun, safe and educational for kids of all ages.
Moshi Monsters is played by adopting a monster and looking after it. The kids will care for the monsters by solving puzzle games which will earn their monster virtual rewards. The kids can spend their virtual money called Rox on virtual items like food, furniture and other treats or toys for their monster. Even though it can be branded as an online game, education is also important for the creators of the game. Every day your child’s monster will create a series of fun puzzles that test everything from vocabulary and arithmetic to logic and spatial skills.
We all know that social networking has its dangers, especially to children. So, to protect your kids from harm while using Moshi Monsters, the site only offers limited social networking features. After receiving a request from a child to register, an email will be sent to the parent. Only after the parent approves the request can the child invite friends into his or her network. In-game communication is also limited and can only be done with the use of message content pre-determined from a phrase list that they provide.
