For several weeks now my son Diego has been reviewing a Club Penguin paid membership. When we first were approached by the rep to review this membership I was not sure how it was any different than the free membership but soon realized that the paid one is so much better than the free membership. There is so much to talk about but for starters here is a written review by my son, Diego. The italics is all his words, none has been altered.
Club penguin is cool . You can go to different places. You can be a part of a secret agency. I’ve fought Herbert P. bear and won many times. I’ve gone on missions that were puzzling and tricky, I learned how to do them fast now. I’ve played games that are cool like puffle launch and more.
I have a black puffle that has headphones on and his name is Blacky. I’ve gone to different places like igloos, ski hill, forest, and more. I have friends on club penguin that I meet with. Right now on club penguin on the 20th of December there is a party, and members get to freeze people and whats good is i’m a member its cool. I have done lots and lots of stuff on club penguin. When I started my membership I had 500 coins now I have 1,116 something. But coins for change is coming up and I have to give away coins which I don’t care because I can earn more.
The blackout day was cool. We defeated Herbert .p. bear easily. For me he wasn’t a challenge. A thing I don’t get is on the blackout days Herbert .p. bear was trying to steal light and warmness so it would freeze the penguins to death but penguins live in the freezing cold Antarctica so that penguins would not survive.ing I don’t like is that random people come up to people and send a friend request to you I never accept them though. I do accept people I do know though. Club penguin has different levels of card jitsu and I’m a black belt because I beat sensei. I’m working on my fire suit and my water suit. Then i’ll be a full ninja. I’m close to being one though. I have the fie shoes, the fire suit, the fire helmet, the water shoes, the water suit and that’s all.
So you can see that my son, Diego, is really enjoying his membership to Club Penguin. You can get a 6-month membership for $39.99 or 12-month for $59.99. you can order your child’s membership here . Coming up this week on December 20th is a new campaign called Coins of Change that will run from Dec 201th to January 2nd. Coins of change teaches children to be generous by donating some of their coins to a charity of their choice. To read more see the press release below,
Club Penguin Kicks off 6th Annual Charity Program in #1 Virtual World for Kids
Coins for Change Event Introduces Kids to Social Good Through Online Play
Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, December 20, 2012 – Club Penguin players are changing the world through online play this holiday season as part of the sixth annual Coins for Change event.Running from December 20 to January 2, the Coins for Change program helps players celebrate the true meaning of the holidays by donating the virtual coins that they earn playing games online in Club Penguin to real-world causes that matter to them. For this year’s event, ClubPenguin will host the biggest virtual bake sale ever, with players baking millions of in-game cookies and then buying cookies using their virtual coins to determine where Club Penguin will contribute its annual $1M USD donation.
Penguins can participate in the virtual bake sale by visiting the all new bakery and cooking up three different kinds of cookies to benefit Coins for Change. At the end of the event, players’ virtual donations from the bake sale will serve as votes to determine how Club Penguin will divide its $1M USD contribution among the pre-selected charitable projects. The votes determine the percentage of donations made in three areas: providing medical help, building safe places and protecting the earth.
To reward players for participating in Coins for Change, when they virtually buy the special bake sale cookies, they will be transformed into new holiday characters for a short period of time. All players can transform into toy cars, while members are rewarded by transforming into reindeer puffles and ‘frost bites,’ which allow them to temporarily freeze in-world items.
“Over the past six years, Coins for Change has inspired our players to take action and make a difference in the lives of millions of kids and families all over the world,” said Chris Heatherly, head of Club Penguin. “We hope this year’s Coins for Change virtual bake sale empowers our players to start similar programs and make a positive difference in their local communities.”
Through programs like Coins for Change, Club Penguin has given a total of $9M USD to charities all over the world, and will cross the $10M USD donation mark later this year, further raising social consciousness among the more than 175 million players who take part in the online community. In last year’s Coins for Change event, kids donated over 10 billion coins to help make the world a better place. As a result of these generous in-world contributions kids have made to Coins for Change, Club Penguin has already helped an excess of one million people in more than 42 countries by funding projects such as:
- · 20 schools built for over 20,000 children
- · 25 school libraries built for over 50,000 children
- · 27 playgrounds for over 85,000 children
- · 33 clean water projects for over 50,000 children & families
- · Youth engagement & education programs around the world for over 1,000,000 children & families
