Kids love animals and virtual pet games can satisfy a 10- or 11-year-old's desire to care for a pet without the expense and commitment that a real pet requires. Dozens of virtual pet games are available. Kids can raise sheep, water a camel, train a dog or dress a cat in cool clothes. Not all of these games are aimed at double-digit aged kids, however. Luckily, some games are perfect for the older child.
Kids of all ages and even adults play Neopets. Players create virtual pets that live in a created world online called Neopia. The first step is to sign up for a free account on the website. You can then create up to four virtual pets. You train, feed, bathe and care for the pets. Some tasks require Neopia currency, called Neopoints and Neocash. You can earn the currency by completing tasks and you can also purchase it.
Tootsville is for kids from 6 years old to 14. You can try the game out for free, but to access all the features, you will need to join. Membership costs £12.90 one time. When you sign up for your free account, you will create a virtual character called a Toot. The Toots are actually little elephants. Peanuts are the currency of the town. You can set up a house for your character, go shopping with your peanuts, complete tasks to earn other peanuts and interact with other Toots.
If your child loves horses, she'd like Bella Sara, a magical online world where she can care for a virtual horse. The horse will have a stall in the stable where your child can brush her, feed her and train her. To play this online game, you need to obtain a Bella Sara trading card. These cards are available at Toys R Us, Target and Walmart. The site is for users under 13 and protects children by not having any social networking on the site. With Bella Sara, you won't have to worry that someone will contact your child who shouldn't while she is playing the game.
Hamster Academy allows your child to breed virtual hamsters. You can register to play this game for free. You start with a basic salary, a hamster and a cage. You have to care for your hamster using your salary. You can buy items for the hamster, such as chew toys, water bottles, food and an exercise wheel. The goal is to care for the hamster and to encourage her to build a nest and breed. You can also run training drills with your hamster to earn more coins.
