“Memories, Education, and Fun!”

Written on: 30/08/2014

Kidscom.com used to be popular back in 2006-2010 or at least that seemed to be its high point. I had an account on this and it was a very fun and social website. Of course I would like to explain that though being called KIDScom.com and it being full of educational world friendly messages the chat features in free chat should be for around 12+ because like all sites there are people who sneak around the 'safe chat' system. It used to be that you couldn't say the word or phrase if it came up in red, but the recent update is if you say something bad then it builds its own phrase saying that "the phrase is clouded, let me try something else" which the new chat system I must say is fairly annoying, I preferred the original one. Also I rarely see people get in trouble by monitors anymore, I actually don't know if there are any anymore.

The Idea Seeker Universe is fairly big. The planet Sarillion contains 4 areas with many rooms to explore. Manabel Island was the beach hangout with village shacks, a restaurant, a science camp and a beautiful waterfall. Jardim Forest was a lush green area with a public park and plenty of shops. The Sarillion Royal Palace area was a grand royal castle with many rooms, a long maze and a large courtyard. The SunPower Foundation Center of Learning was a giant center full of educational messages. On the other planet Washi there was the WowWee Alive Animal Care Center which taught the importance of animals as you cared for them. Along with the Faithful Friends TV corner based on the show.

The Primary Games aren't too advanced which makes them look kind of old and the controls seem a little odd. They also mainly have educational messages. They are great for younger kids, boring for older kids. The only reason older kids play them is to get VP (Virtual Points) to buy clothes, plant babies, plant baby food, and furniture.

Like a lot of virtual worlds there are virtual pets, KidsComs's case being Plant Babies. They are no Club Penguin Puffle but if they are well taken care of you may walk with them around the Idea Seeker Universe, you can also name them. They are basic and not too hard to take care of.

The story of Kidscom is also entertaining. Though I don't know if its being continued since the year is 2014. Princess Kimma and friends try to stop The Darkness, an evil cloud lord, and his Clouds of Chaos from taking over Earth and making people do things like litter, and be rude. (Sounds really lame but it really makes you feel like you're making a difference when you were only 8)

The only time you would have to pay is if you bought some KidsCom themed merchandise or you made a membership as an Idea Seeker. If you are an Ally, a non-paying user, it doesn't make much of a gameplay difference. You can't enter the Idea Seeker Park and buy certain objects. It makes almost 0 difference, especially now when I haven't seen this site updated in more than a year.

I really hope those who created KidsCom will come back and continue the story of the Idea Seeker Universe but now the site is almost empty, the only users usually go on everyday. This site always has held an emotional place in my heart. Please give this game a try, and don't exit withing like 5 minutes like half of these reviewers did. Take it from me 9 years of experience, Play Smart, Stay Safe and Have Fun!

P.S. Remember if you see Kind Zara to say hello I won't bite.
P.P.S LET'S GET THIS SITE BACK AND RUNNING!
