The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks Virtual World is an exciting new massive online virtual world for kids where players can travel to places around the world, through time and space, meet famous historical people, play fun enriching games, make new friends own exotic islands, build culture-inspired houses, wear all kinds of cool clothing and costumes, explore secret locations, solve ancient mysteries and become a legendary traveler!
Probably the most massive virtual world for kids to date, The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks features more than 100 fun-filled educational real world and imaginary locations from the past, present and future.

Parents can look forward to a safe site for their children where they will be learning about history, geography, landmarks, famous people, inventions, the environment, animals and more. And for the children, they can expect hours of fun-filled exploration.
The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks was originally a children story book series by John Bittleston, later adapted into a virtual world for kids by creative entrepreneur Aldric Chang and Ngo Chee Yong. (

My Thoughts:
Wiglington and Wenks is targeted at youth ages 7-14; my daughter that is playing the game is 11 years old and just finished 5th grade. I have to be honest that I do not understand virtual world games; I logged on and tried playing but couldn't figure out the concept of this world. I was able to enter some buildings and play some games but they were not educational in my opinion.

The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks is a virtual world. In it you are trying to regain historical people's memories. You get to travel the world to Singapore and more. A paid membership (only $5.99 a month) makes it 30x better. Also there are a good amount of games as well as dressing up in tons of cool clothes and costumes. What I don't like about it is it doesn't have enough people playing.

I received a premium membership for 1 month, free of charge, from Wiglington and Wenks, for the purposes of this review.
