Club Penguin has captured the imagination of many a 6-14 year old.
The kids love the lack of restrictions, the parents love the freemium price tag; it’s a win-win situation.
But you may think it’s utterly unique… Are there any games like Club Penguin at all?
After all, how many kid-targeted cartoony MMOs can there be?
The answer is more than you think. If your child is looking to move onto pastures new then carry on reading as I give you the best of the rest.
Yes, I’m afraid to inform you that not only is Moshi Monsters the toy du jour likely to be found in some form or another in every child in the key demographics bedroom (and a handful in mine I have to say) but it is actually first and foremost a video game.
The game world isn’t as large as you might like it to be but when it’s filled with mini-games (including educational ones), customising and your child’s favourite characters there’s a lot for younger children here to enjoy.
The chat options are more limited but your child will be so absorbed in caring for their adopted Moshi pet that they probably won’t even notice.

Poptropica is aimed at 6-15 year olds and is the brain child of Jeff Kinney, author of the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid books.
It’s an adventure MMO with educational elements.
When you first sign up you create a customised character and then you’re free to explore the different islands to take part in games, both single and multiplayer, socialise and complete goals.
The game has vastly grown in popularity over the years so the once humble set of islands is now vast, including many themed islands such as Great Pumpkin Island (Peanuts) and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
There’s high speed chases on Wild West Island and mysteries to be solved on Counterfeit Island.
The game is massive and so varied that boredom seems a long way away
If I had to pick a game similar to Club Penguin to play then this would my top choice.

If what you value most in Club Penguin is the social interaction then Fantage is a good alternative.
Aimed at the same audience there are a large amount of multiplayer games to earn in-game currency which is used to buy new pets and items.
The friend’s list has space for even the most sociable player’s buddies with hundreds of slots.
You have no excuses for losing touch as you can chat to a single friend or host parties very easily.
At the same time it is very safety conscious, assigning a randomised name to each new character to prevent real world identity from being leaked.
