Wiglington and Wenks Virtual World Review & Giveaway!



The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks Virtual World is a great educational online game where kids can travel the world while learning about various cultures, historical figures, environmental issues, and most importantly… have fun! They go on a quest to find famous historical people who've gotten lost around the world! With time travelling tools (to both the future and the past), cool costumes, and secret locations…. it's an adventure a kid is sure to love!


Despite being a newly launched virtual world (December 2009), Wiglington and Wenks was nominated as one of the top 5 virtual worlds for kids by the readers of About.com, currently topping other established sites like Club Penguin.

After being contacted by Wiglington and Wenks for a possible review and giveaway, I decided to let my daughter be in control. After watching the video, my daughter and I signed up as we were so intrigued by the video! She couldn't wait to get started!



She was able to travel to the Grand Canyon, Madagascar, the Amazon Rain Forest, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, Esplanade in Singapore, and the Big Ben in the UK! She also learned about Charles Darwin, Gandhi, Chief Joseph, and other historical figures!


Best of all, parents can control the amount of interactions with other players! You can select "safe chat" or no chatting at all!


As I mentioned earlier, in addition to doing the review, I was also able to do a giveaway!!! Now, while you can sign up for Wiglington and Wenks for FREE, they also have a premium membership for $5.99/month to gain access to all of the features, special areas and extra privileges!




And here goes…5 The King's Court IV readers will be selected for 1 month FREE premium membership for Wiglington and Wenks!
