Big Kid's latest obsession is Pocketville at jungleinmypocket.com It's a little pinker than he'd like, but there are boy avatars and apparently it doesn't bother him too much because he loves playing.
Here's a voucher code for 250 free Pocketville tokens--Voucher Code: B9GX8NUDYS
(the code expires Sept. 30)
You enter that soon after you set up your kid's account (which only takes a minute) in an optional voucher code box. I only mention that because I thought you'd enter it around the little virtual store, but you don't. From what I've seen of it, the game looks pretty cute and I like that kids can enjoy it without having to buy a stuffed animal or something in order to get a code. I also like that I don't have to download anything--they play online.
There is an option for parents to buy tokens with small amounts of real money, but kids can also earn tokens by doing things throughout the site and that's what Big Kid has been doing (along with his starter tokens) and he's been having a great time for free.
Big Kid will be reviewing this himself on his own blog, which will be unveiled shortly, so stay tuned for his take on it too.
