The world of online fantasy is getting more and more realistic everyday with modern software programs that will do just about anything you ask them too. For the children you can make them a new friend so that there is no real need for any imaginary friends anymore; real friends that you can interact with, play with and even learn from. The best part about your choice to create a virtual person for kids 8 and under is that parents can have complete control of the project if they like otherwise they can let their child’s creativity run wild.
Making yourself a play mate at this young age is something that is natural for many children because most children play fantasy games which involve characters who are not really there. Now you can get involved with your child’s games and see what they see when you create a virtual friend for them to play with. Creating the new person is only the beginning of the fun after that you can dress them how you like, feed them what you like and play most games that are available on the software program.
Once you have decided on the type of person that you are going to create make sure this is what your child wants to do so that the effort is worth the trouble you go to. Small details are the difference between your child loving or hating the new creation so get as much input as possible from them. Remember when you are creating a virtual person for any of your children that they will be the ones doing most of the playing.
