Second Life and other online worlds are popular around the globe, but some parents might not feel comfortable letting their kids explore a predominately adult world (as they do in Second Life). For kids, there are safe alternatives such as Habbo Hotel
. It’s now being marketed as a “hangout for teens” (the site motto), but younger children, with some monitoring from adults, can reasonably play at Habbo Hotel. Many of the features on the site are free, but kids will likely be interested in buying some of the premium items, like furniture, which helps them build their world in the hotel. Read the “Help” section of the Habbo site
to learn more.
