Virtual Pets Online Games My Kids Love

Working in the Information Technology field has given me the opportunity and knowledge in computer systems. This is also the main reason why there are five computers in the house. While I use two of them, the remaining three serves as a mini gaming network for my children and their friends. I taught my kids how to use computers and browse the Internet. Of course, I set up some parental filter and appropriate controls. These protect my kids from unsolicited information and other corrupting things they might encounter while browsing. Our house seemed like a perfect hangout place for my kids and their friends. How they love it when I serve some sweet hampers while they’re doing their own kiddie businesses online.I have noticed that the kids love to play virtual pet online games. They enjoyed it so much they seldom play outdoors. Their online gaming, while munching sweets from sweet hampers, gave me a closer supervision. I was doubtful at first, but after checking the websites privacy policies, I finally allowed them to continue playing.There’s this particular site that my kids really love. They spend hours and hours gaming while eating some chocos and candies from sweet hampers. The site enables them to create up to four virtual pets at a time. Then, they have to buy the pets’ food, toys, clothes, and other accessories using a virtual currency. They earn this virtual cash through playing games, investing in a virtual “stock market” among others. I don’t know the mechanics of stock market myself that it astounds me that my kids enjoy this game so much.When my kids’ friends are around, I always order for more sweet hampers from the candy shops. My little girl loved dolls. When I found out about this dress-up virtual game I finally introduced her into it. There, she has all the liberty of dressing up her dolls any way she likes without me spending cash. What’s more is that all the items are so “fashionista”. My girl is only one of the millions of kids, teens and adults who visit the game site every month. It’s not only a site to play games but make friends, and take part in active online community events.Kids do grow up. My son gave up pets and my daughter gave up her dress up dolls. Now, they leveled up into new online virtual games. My son now plants, harvests and still invests on farm things. His pets became livestock and he even harvests milks. On the other hand, my daughter is so engrossed with her virtual cafe. She now wakes up early just to “serve” her dishes. I wonder if she ever found out how to make sweet hampers.
