Pen Pal Kids Club ~ review & giveaway

Did you ever have a pen pal?  I did as a child and it was a great experience.  I used to love to get mail from my pen pal that lived on the East Coast.  Now your children can have that same experience in an online format from Pen Pal Kids Club.

Now, I know you are probably thinking that online activity is not safe.  But rest assure the author and founder of Pen Pal Kids Club, Shelley Aliotti, has made every attempt to make sure that this is a safe global, virtual community!  Parents are able to monitor their child’s account because they are hooked up directly to the parents account.  Communications, friend requests, video postings, and account settings are all in the control of the parent.  There is also a safe question version for younger kids that may have trouble figuring out what to write to their pen pals. 

Pen Pal Kids Club is geared children as young as 4 years old and up.  Economically priced at $4.99/month for up to 5 household members it’s a great way for kids to get connected.  Pen Pal Kids Club has no outside advertisers, members or hidden traps - this is a completely safe site.  None of your information is ever sold.

While I am not too keen on my girls spending hours on the computer or delving into social networks we did enjoy this site fully.  My girls enjoyed making their avatars and exploring the educational games, encyclopedia library, and postcards to send to new friends.  We have put out a few friend requests to different countries and are awaiting response.free-july

Sound like something your child would be interested in?  If so, then I have great news for you!  During the month of July the site is completely free for everyone.  Plus one of my readers will be able to win a 3 month membership for free just for leaving a comment below.
