"Survivor" for kids? (And a fun giveaway)

MomSelect and  Time Island recently asked me to check out the new website for kids, Time Island. They also sent me a fun package with bracelets, tattoos, a bandana and a backpack, all with a "survivor" "Time Island" theme. (Keep reading for your chance to win a similar package).

What exactly IS Time Island?
  • A "Community" oriented game, where kids create a player who is trying to "survive" on Time Island. 
  • They need to be cared for (Food, Hygiene, Clean hut~ important concepts! ;) )
  • They can "improve" their living situation by playing games and earning currency to purchase items for their huts. 
  • The children can invite others to be a part of their "Tribe", where they can play games together and chat. This is an introduction  to "Social Media" in a safer environment. Rules are in place to protect your child, and you can opt to keep their social activity set to "Limited chat" option

Here's a little video that will give you more information.
As with many BETA programs, there are limitations to playing on Time Island. There are games that are difficult to figure out exactly "how" to play. There are games that seem "Required" but frustrating, as one can't go far enough to "Earn" the object needed, due to this being the Beta version.

However, there are some neat aspects: Graphics are nice, tribe option is interesting, and there are some unique games. Once some of the "Bugs" are figured out, this should be a fun option for computer-time play.

If you are interested in checking it out, please use our link (the mom/child team who drives the most traffic to Time Island will receive a gift).
