Online Games for Kids
Online games are a great way for kids to interact with other people while having fun. But a lot of the most popular games at the moment aren’t very kid-friendly. That’s why I wanted to put together this list of some fantastic online games for kids. No matter what your child is interested in, there is sure to be a game they’ll love on this list.
If your child is a fan of Pokemon then they will LOVE Temtem. Temtem is a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) that is made in the style of Pokemon. You catch little monsters who can then fight one another. This game is online and can be played by people of all ages around the world. However, you can make it a little safer for kids by turning off chat.
Animal Jam is an award-winning educational game geared specifically towards kids. They also put a lot of emphasis on safety. Their in-game chat system has a long list of filters that are getting constantly updated with new slang and terms. The game itself is full of bright colors and fun animals. You can find it on PC, Amazon, Google Play, and the iOS App Store.
Roblox is another MMORPG that is focused more towards kids that is world-renowned. The game is quite similar to Minecraft in that you can find hundreds of games within Roblox. There is something for every child and I would highly recommend that every child should give this game a try.
Pirate101 and Wizard101
Pirate101 and Wizard101 are actually two completely separate games, but they are created by the same studio and it is nearly impossible to find someone who plays one of the games but not the other, so I put them together. Pirate101 and Wizard101 are MMORPGs that are mostly geared towards family play, yes, these are games that the whole family can enjoy. Pirate101 is well…all about pirates while Wizard101 focuses more on fantasy. Both are fantastic games that are loved by thousands of players.
Neopets is a virtual pet website that has been around since 1999! In the game, you have pets, pet pets, and even petpetpets to take care of, give homes, and love. There are also a ton of minigames available on the site. These days the website is mostly populated by older people, but Neopets goes through great lengths to keep kids safe while they play. It is also a great game to help them learn about money, including having its own stock market which doesn’t cost any real money.
This list wouldn’t be complete without including Minecraft. This is a game that is loved by people of all ages, it is used in the classroom as an educational tool, and it’s one of those games that the whole family can play together. While your kids play Minecraft they can learn to code, build fantastic worlds, and even create games inside the game. So much is possible with this versatile game that I would say it is a must for every household with kids.
