New Report on Virtual Worlds Lists 7 Must-Have Features for Kids

The new report from interFUEL draws from the hands-on experience of this interactive agency which has created virtual worlds and online content for Shining Stars, Nickelodeon, MTV and Sesame Street. It pinpoints seven must-have features for a virtual world that will truly engage kids, tweens, and teens:

  • Mom’s approval, since the ultimate decision to admit a child rests with the parents.
  • Safety, under the law, and in the eyes of parents and children.
  • Fun, fun, fun!
  • Fresh content, so that visiting the world becomes part of a child’s routine.
  • Ways to connect and socialize with other kids.
  • A feeling of control over the child’s appearance, personal space, and resources.
  • Means to encourage self-expression.
