AllStarBuddies.com is a new sports-themed virtual world website for kids where a healthy, positive lifestyle is reinforced through fun games and safe social interaction. Using individual and multi-player games, children learn about problem-solving, goal setting, good sportsmanship, teamwork, fitness and good nutrition all while having a fun online experience.
Founded by Caryn Burns and Cindy Prince, two moms with a passion for sports, fitness and their children, AllStarBuddies.com is a safe, virtual “playground” for kids (ages 6+) where a healthy, positive lifestyle is reinforced through fun games, quests and social interaction. Using individual and multi-player games, children learn about problem-solving, goal setting, good sportsmanship, teamwork, fitness, good nutrition and environmental awareness – all while having a fun online experience that will keep them coming back for many “extra innings.”
Based in the fictional town of “Varsity Heights,” members receive a user id and password for their own, private account. Once registered, the first stop is in (where else?!) the “Locker Room” where they log in to the world and select one of seven sports-themed, animated characters as their onscreen persona, which can be changed as often as a child wants to.
Children can also collect the seven All Star Buddies plush toys, each of which comes with a unique, promotional code that they can enter online to receive extra privileges in Varsity Heights! The “All Star Buddies” animated characters in Varsity Heights include: Chip, (the “Golf Buddy”) Blitz (the “Football Buddy”) Deuce (the “Tennis Buddy”) Striker (the “Soccer Buddy”), Ace (the “Baseball Buddy”) Swish (the “Basketball Buddy”) Deke (the “Hockey Buddy”). I was sent Deke for review and needless to say, my son was most entranced with him, his blades and his bright colors! He hasn't quite grasped the concept of hockey yet, but he's sure to love it once he's old enough to :)
Clearly designed by people who understand how children like to play, AllStarBuddies.Com has more places to visit and more things to do than you could ever imagine. For information, please visit www.allstarbuddies.com
