Moshi Monsters is a 2D Kids MMO that allows players to adopt and raise a monster, customize their own house, and play mini-games to earn currency. It’s free to play, but they also offer a paid Moshi Membership that gives players access to a host of exclusive extra features.
Successfully nurturing a Moshi Monster is no mean feat. It takes a variety of skills that a child can develop over time. Kids will need to think creatively, hypothesise, strategise, manage resources, collaborate with friends, and nurture a wide variety of other skills that could extend positively into their everyday lives. Players earn “Rox” by solving a wide range of fun daily puzzles with their monster. These puzzles are easy to start with, but become increasingly challenging as the child’s skills develop. The puzzles cover a wide range of skills including numeracy, logic, spatial awareness, geography, anagrams, and vocabulary.
Monsters love words and communicate with their Monster Owners regularly via speech bubbles, to encourage reading. Their moods are visually represented and also expressed by a printed word in their virtual room. Since their moods can change regularly, your child has plenty of opportunity to learn new vocabulary. For instance, their monster might be feeling “jubilant” one day, but “melancholy” the next.
We passionately believe that children learn best when they’re having fun and this principle is right at the heart of Moshi Monsters.
