Club Penguin, Disney’s awesome virtual world for kids has released a new iPad app and NOTHING WILL EVER BE THE SAME AGAIN.
I’m basing the bold part of the previous statement on the loud and frequent opinions of my children, who know from penguins. They are fans. I also dabble, it helps me retain my
street igloo cred, and the boys love nothing more than hanging out with their dad on Penguin Island. Our home echoes with calls of “Daddy, now let’s go feed your puffles!” It’s virtual family fun!
The new Club Penguin iPad app, My Penguin, allows players to enjoy four of their favorite games from ClubPenguin.com: Pufflescape, Puffle Rescue, Puffle Roundup, and Ice Fishing, plus a new game called Sushi Drop. They will also be able to sync in real-time (Wi-Fi connection required) to transfer items and coins, customize their penguin avatar, and throw snowballs at friends online.
“With the launch of the My Penguin app, we will give players the games and activities that they love most about the Club Penguin experience,” said Chris Heatherly, Vice President and General Manager, Disney Interactive Worlds. “This app is just the beginning for us as we provide an increasingly connected mobile experience for Club Penguin players around the world.”
Club Penguin has been a favorite in our house for a long time—the kids love the experience and my wife and I appreciate the fun, educational, and safe online environment. The filtering technology, live moderators, and absence of third-party advertising make Club Penguin a world we can trust, and who doesn’t love penguins?
My Penguin is currently available in English (other languages coming soon) for free on the iTunes App Store. The game is free to play; however, a subscription membership allows players to do lots more!
Like my igloo!
