Time Island Virtual Kids World

Time Island virtual world is a fun new online game for kids. It has a secure safe option to play so that kids and parents can feel comfortable.

Kids will like that Time Island is a place of wonder and adventure. The creators say that your survival skills will be put to the test as you explore gorgeous beaches and lush jungles. You move from there to tree-top terraces and dark underground caverns.

Your child will have to outsmart and outlast the Goggs-fantastical creatures that inhabit the island.

Kids have the option to join a tribe to help one another. They say that survival is always easier when you’re not alone. Kids learn they need to maintain good hygiene and they need to eat healthy food to stay strong.

Players have to look alive all the time to avoid peril! Bushes, rocks, giant trees and caves hold all kinds of craziness and peril to add to the excitement of the game.

It is an exciting and fun game that I know my kids are enjoying. Give it a try! To survive on Time Island is a challenge, but the fun is even greater

EMOTIONAL AWARENESS: Expressing and controlling your feelings.

GOAL SETTING/HOPE: Finding ways to achieve your goals.

RESILIENCE: Coping with life's ups and downs.

EMPOWERMENT: Identifying and using your strengths and skills.

There are some useful tips and videos that I encourage everyone to investigate further.
