Last year when my oldest son was in 3rd Grade he came home from school very excited one day to tell me all about a game called Animal Jam. He heard about it from his classmates and asked me if he could set up an account to play the game online. Initially I was leery because I didn't like the idea of my child having a username and password to an online gaming community at such a young age, but I decided to see what all the hype was about and checked out the game for myself.
The game itself encompasses this fictional World where you can visit all the different sections to find various games and shops. My boys' favorite destination is the arcade where you will find the majority of the games. I've even caught my husband sitting and playing a game or two with my boys on occasion. ;) Here's a little peek at what it looks like to be in the game, in the arcade section. All of the arcade games you see are different games you can click on to play. You earn gems by playing the games which helps you buy accessories for your animal and den.
My boys have had a great experience playing the game without paying for a membership, but to unlock even more fun like additional animals, accessories, dens, den items, and more games, you can purchase a membership for $5.95 per month or even less if you purchase a 6 or 12 month membership.
