The wonderful world of Fantage

Fantage is a fun, colorful virtual world. This is very kid friendly and age appropriate for young kids.It is very easy to access and to play. Kids of all ages can play plus even teenagers because they have a 13 and older chat. Adding friends is very easy all you have to do is click on the friend you wish to add and click the plus button. To earn stars, you go to the world map to pick out the game for you and you play games which earns you stars. With the stars, you can buy furniture, clothes, hair styles, and many more. If you have problems with anything there is always someone around to help you and there are tutorials.
There is a downside to Fantage because when you purchase items many are marked as Premium Members can only buy these items. To become a Premium Member, you have to purchase an account.

I tried to test other virtual worlds like Kaneva but there was a problem every time I tried to log in and it was very hard to move around. It always said an administrator would be contacted but it looked like nothing changed and i did not receive and email.

This is the evaluation form we have set up for testing virtual worlds. We will copy the evaluation and post it on our blog.

It is very easy to explore and if i ever needed help I could type in a question to other members that were on Fantage.
