It might be hard being a parent, but growing up wasn’t exactly a walk in the park either as I remember it. It can be a walk in the online park though if you join the community at Tinkatolli.me. This is an online virtual world for kids, created by parents to be a safe, fun & importantly a challenging place for young minds to start experiencing exploring & socialising online. The world is really fun to explore with games and quests littered around. But what makes this site special is the way it encourages children to play away from their computers too, providing craft projects that you can complete in Tinkatolli & build in the real world too.
Many of the craft items – or makeables – have been designed by Tinkatolli players using actual junk – there’s a weekly competition to add more. Some games & features require a premium sign up but there is plenty of free content too. With appropriately moderated chat & all the safety precautions you’d expect from a team who are parents themselves, this looks like a great introduction for any new citizens of the world wide web.
