After much pestering, we signed up our little boy (then aged 6) to Club Penguin and it wasn't really all that great. Previously, he'd been playing on both Moshi Monsters and Bin Weevils, both of which he'd found really engrossing, so we'd assumed he'd love Club Penguin.
But while the experience was much of a muchness (control your character, play games, buy extra stuff etc) it somehow fell a little flat and he barely showed any interest in it once he'd been signed up. In fact we cancelled after a month or two because he was getting so little out of it.
Perhaps the most annoying thing was the limited playability before signing up (the huge majority of activities seemed to require membership, whereas other similar sites you can do a lot more for free). Aside from that, it also seemed dreadfully slow to load - perhaps just because of its popularity.
Anyway, as stated, the boy soon tired and wanted to go back to Moshi Monsters, which is exactly what we did!
