What Fun Educational Apps liked about the site:
This website seems to be a super-engaging, safe, and free Internet community for kids. After customizing your adopted monster, you can explore all over the world, playing games, solving puzzles, and interacting with friends. To earn Rox, each player must complete a variety of puzzles each day. There is a wide range of stimulating puzzles: mazes, counting, spatial puzzles, division, vocabulary builders, synonyms, etc. I really loved the depth of activity these puzzles brought. Aside from the daily puzzle, players also have the option of practicing each specific skill to earn more Rox. As a teacher, I loved the vocabulary building exercises and the word knowledge needed to be successful. Players can also play a variety of other games around the world. For example, they must work at the ice cream shop serving specific customer orders in a given amount of time. Each task or puzzle is at a compound level, with some of the Super Moshi tasks being multi-step.
What Fun Educational Apps liked about the app:
As a fan guide to Moshlings, this app is extensive. Players familiar to the game will find this essential to attracting the perfect little pet. The cheats given are vital for getting the Moshling you are looking for. The fact sheet on each of the Moshlings is cute and detailed, and fits the entire mood of the world. I also liked the customization feature for the Moshlings. With over 100 stickers, the Moshlings can take on any personality. Word stickers can change a Moshling creation into an instant greeting card. Simply use a sticker, snap a photo, and send it to a friend. The ease of sharing your creations is another great feature.
Overall, this app would be an essential companion to the Moshi Monster world. It is a great addition to an already extensive environment. Players serious about their Moshling collections will appreciate the cheats. Casual players will enjoy learning more about the cute little garden friends. As a guide, this is a great tool for the avid Moshi Monster fan.
