Are you a parent with a child that is between the ages of six and fourteen years old? If so, then you should really considering letting your child play a game called Club Penguin online. Club Penguin was made available to the extensive public on October 24th, 2005 and has since expanded into a large online community growing to the extent that by late 2007, it was claimed that Club Penguin had over 12 million user accounts!

Nice! Now THAT is a popular gaming community! This is almost as big as the teen and adult MMORPG game WoW! Free memberships are available, but revenue is predominantly raised through paid memberships which allow players to access a range of additional features, (such as the ability to purchase virtual clothing, furniture and "pets", also called puffles, for their penguins through the use of in-game currency).

The success of Club Penguin led to New Horizon being purchased by The Walt Disney Company in August 2007 for the sum of $350 million, with an additional $350 million in bonuses should specific targets be met by 2009. If you are a parent and your reading this you might be wondering about all the safety issues with a site such as this, right?

Well the developers Club Penguin Entertainment (formerly New Horizon Interactive) have actually thought about this as well. And this is the exact reason they have taken precautionary measures so that you the parent can "control" the game but so that your child can still have a lot of fun!

One thing they have incorporated is filtering that prevents swearing and the revelation of personal information; and moderators (along with veteran players) who police the game. One thing your kids may be looking for IF they play this game is the cheats or hints available online.

Everyone does this. It doesn't necessarily brand you as being the bad kid because you wanted to figure out all the odds and ends of a game. It makes you inquisitive and incredibly dedicated to figuring a game out! One thing I found was a website online that game you all kinds of ins and outs of the game.

Here you will get very useful information and most important, cheats and secrets. For instance, do you want to unlock the blue book and get 1500 coins? Or maybe you want to find out what the new "pin" cheat it?!? Well now you can find all of these cheats, hints and tips on these cheat penguin websites! Pretty cool! I love penguins, maybe I'll join just to see what the craze is about! Other cool games you can check out for your children are things like Webkinz, Habbo Hotel, and Neopets! So you can check those out as well!
