Skoodlez.com is a unique alternative to so many of the online gaming communities for children because the website and accompanying toys encourage story telling and help foster a love of reading and writing in children. Plus they are just plain adorable.
Each whimsical 12-inch Skoodlez creature comes with a special gold coin with a code that unlocks an online world that helps build reading and writing skills. Kids can write and print their own unique Skoodlez stories, read and vote on other kids’ Skoodlez stories, and watch animated adventures. Created for kids age 4 and up, Skoodlez is a great gift idea for this Christmas.
My 6-year-old daughter tested out Cupcake, a cute pink hippo with long legs and long eyelashes. She loved Cupcake so much that she instantly earned a coveted place of honor on my daughter’s bed (and as we all know, only the “in” crowd toys make it to this level.)
Skoodlez are available at Macy’s and retail for $14.99. The holiday elves Skoodlez would be a fun addition to your child’s Skoodlez collection this winter.
The Skoodiculous Mobile Story Mobile Blog chronicles the adventures of Cupcake and Kingston the Lion as they visit Macy’s stores nationwide. Be sure to check out their blog to see if they’re coming to a Macy’s near you!
