"Fantage" is an online virtual reality experience for children; as of 2015, there are many other online games that offer similar immersive experiences for kids, such as "Tiny Planets" and "Chimpoo." Players can customize their characters, interact with other users and play educational games.
"Fantage" promises educational content that appeals to kids and teachers alike. It also guarantees a safe online environment for children, with a zero-tolerance policy toward offensive language or content and the sharing of personal information. Parents can choose to disable the chat option to keep younger children safe. "Fantage" is designed as a teaching tool and is completely free.
Games such as "Tiny Planets" and "Chimpoo" offer similar benefits to "Fantage," though the focus is slightly more on fun and entertainment than on learning. "Tiny Planets" is based on a popular TV show and offers young children the ability to build a home, plant a garden, play educational games and take fun quizzes. "Chimpoo" offers similar activities.
Both games are free to play, though both include payment options that enhance the game play. A paid membership in "Tiny Planets" allows children access to more in-game areas and virtual items. "Chimpoo" allows users to pay for extra virtual currency, which allows for more in-game purchasing power.
