Travels of Wiglington and Wenks Review/Giveaway

Does your child like to play games online? My daughter loves to play games but I limit her to only certain websites because internet safety is important to me. Often times my daughter finds herself bored with the handful of websites that I have approved. Luckily I was introduced to a website called The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks Virtual World. The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks Virtual World is an exciting massive online virtual world for kids (ages 7-14) where players can travel to places around the world, through time and space, meet famous historical people, play fun enriching games, make new friends own exotic islands, build culture-inspired houses, wear all kinds of cool clothing and costumes, explore secret locations, solve ancient mysteries and become a legendary traveler.

The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks Virtual World allows my daughter to virtually travel the world and provides her with endless fun. The games are so much fun! Some games teach kids about the environment, animals, history, culture, sports, inventions and more. Other games sharpen kids’ senses and nurture friendly interaction with other children. One our favorite games is wordscotch which is a typing test for kids. My daughter has been increasing her typing speed & skills with the help of this game. My mind is at ease when my daughter plays The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks because they have applied many safety features on their site:

*No numbers- They have developed a system that cleverly filters out telephone numbers and addresses to prevent the exchange of sensitive information.
