Review of Moshi Monsters

Moshi Monsters Moshlings 1.5 Inch Exclusive Gold 2 Collector Tin TWO
Moshi Monsters are touted to be one of the biggest sellers for Christmas 2012. How can this be when Moshi Monsters are free online pet monsters that your child can adopt online?

Back in 2007 Michael Acton Smith developed the concept of having a pet Monster that a child could adopt, customize and care for. In 2008 the UK entertainment company Mind Candy launched this as a free online site for children ages 6 -18. The concept of this has been a huge success and it is estimated that there are now 65 million registered users in 150 territories worldwide.

From this online success, Moshi Monsters has expanded commercially with physical products, including toys, the number-one selling kids’ magazine in the UK (Moshi Monsters magazine), a best-selling DS video game, a music album, books, membership cards, trading cards, and pasta.
Moshi Monsters
It is these Moshi Monsters toys that will be selling out quickly this Christmas. The toys allow children to play with them in the real world. The various toys come in packs, tins, and play sets.

The creators of Moshi Monsters want these Moshlings to be Fun, Educational, and Safe.

Moshi Monsters Safety Features

Before a child can create a Moshi Monsters account they must have confirmed parental consent. On the site there are self-policing tools, including red “M” buttons on pinboard messages where users can report potentially disagreeable content, which the site’s moderators will review.
Before a user can connect and play games with other users they must know their screen name and have that friend accept them.
No personal information or identifying features will be shared. Photos that are shared are of the adopted pet monster.

Moshi Monsters Educational Attributes

By playing games and doing puzzles the monster can win rewards called Rox. The fun puzzles test vocabulary, arithmetic, logic, and spatial skills. The levels achieved will change with the child’s success.

Your child will need to think creatively, hypothesize, strategize, manage resources, collaborate with friends, and nurture a wide variety of other skills that could extend positively into their everyday lives.

Moshi Monsters Fun Factors

It is widely felt that Moshi Monsters are more entertainment than educational. Considering the origin of this concept that is not surprising.

All of the toy packs come with a prize code card that can be used in to online games. They can also be traded with your friends.

The playsets provide places to play. There are things like:

What Others Are Saying About Moshi Monsters

“I bought this for my 7 yo son for Christmas with the book. (Sold seperatly)He didn’t use it at first until I showed him the book full of all the other characters and now he just won’t put them down and wants more! I highly recommend that you purchase the book with these-they definately encourage reading! And they’re perfect for boys and girls alike!”

“My sons love ‘Moshi Monsters’ – in particular the mini-figures. Although the kids were excited to receive these, their disappointment came in that they were more of the ‘girl’ ones. Unfortunately in purchasing these, you are not able to pick which package you want to have shipped (some are for girls and some are more tailored for boys). The packaging and toys themselves did arrive in great condition.”

“I lovee MOSHI MONSTERS!!!! I wasn’t very fond of this product too much, because when I recived it, the moshlings inside(2) were kind of looking like they were about to come off. The paint on the moshlings were also not quite right, it wasn’t 100% on the correct spot, but for this price, it was the best deal ever!

Anyways, to make this shorter, I think this is a great deal and everyone should get it. Arrived un-harmed and is super fun for children to collect/trade/resell!!”
