“This site has the perfect education-to-fun ratio, which our family is always looking for.”- Disney FamilyFun Magazine
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 25, 2011
The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks Virtual World has been described as the Perfect Virtual World for Kids. The owners, Wiglington and Wenks Worldwide Pte Ltd, wanted parents to know that there is at least one virtual world that does not consist of mindless hours of game playing or exposure to internet dangers. Some virtual worlds have been condemned as being a waste of time; The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks has proved to be anything but that. The owners are now looking for a buyer or investor to develop it further.
“This site has the perfect education-to-fun ratio, which our family is always looking for.” These were the words parent testers for the Disney FamilyFun Magazine – a trusted resource for families and parents – used to describe The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks Virtual World. This virtual world or kids was also voted as one of Disney FamilyFun’s Top Ten Fun Websites in the magazine’s September 2010 issue.
This virtual world is also the proud recipient of several important awards such as the National Parenting Publications Awards (Gold Award), Mom’s Choice Awards (Gold Award) and the Parent’s Choice Awards.
Since 2006, Aldric Chang – a creative entrepreneur who runs 3d animation company MediaFreaks and is father to a 9 year old boy – has been exploring virtual worlds with his child. It did not take long for him to realize something was missing from the existing virtual worlds for kids. There was just not enough value and substance to educate and entertain children at the same time. Although there were lots of games to play and virtual items to purchase, but they taught nothing to the kids. Sure enough, stories of virtual worlds which encouraged nothing but playing games and consumerism got featured on the mass media soon after.
As Chang watched the media lynch these virtual worlds, he felt quite certain he had the answer to the virtual world which has the perfect mix between education and entertainment. He developed a concept and what he needed was the correct intellectual property to build the world upon.
The opportunity came when John Bittleston – the author of The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks children books, theatre play, exhibition, board game and children’s project, teamed up with Aldric Chang for ideas to grow his intellectual property.
Today, Wiglington and Wenks reach out to parents through the virtual world they have created. Mostly by word-of-mouth, The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks Virtual World has reached out to more than 200,000 registrants from around the globe and received hundreds of positive virtual world reviews from authoritative sites, parents, educators and players alike.
"Wiglington and Wenks teaches world history, geography and culture to kids and at the moment features more than 10 historical characters and locations like the Amazon Forest, Madagascar, Grand Canyon, Singapore, London's Big Ben and more. We have lots more in the pipeline pending funds. Kids and parents believe that we are the best virtual world on the market, and we believe that too." says Aldric Chang.
A recent procurement of the TRUSTe seal - which requires a series of privacy compliance tests to obtain - demonstrates Wiglington and Wenks’s resolve at keeping their players safe.
“Our test launch has demonstrated a product with greater potential than any other children’s virtual world to date and we would like to consider investments or selling Wiglington and Wenks to a corporation or individual who can take it to the next stage. We welcome all interested parties to speak to us.”
