This article is in collaboration with Wiglington and Wenks.
Wiglington and Wenks is a children’s story book series by John Bittleston that has been turned into a Virtual World intended to help 7-14 year old’s interact with history, geography, landmarks, inventions, nature, wildlife, the environment, and more.
Along the way, the traveler can interact with a diverse group of people — from Beethoven to Chief Joseph, from Genghis Khan to St. Patrick. The game sends them on a quest to locate and help these historical figures.
The travelers also have a chance to play games, design an island, dress up in costumes from many cultures, and interact with kids from around the world.
You start your child in Wiglington & Wenks by setting up a free account. You can then upgrade to a paid subscription — or not. The paid subscription makes your child an Elite Quest Traveler, which opens up more locations, games, and ‘stuff’ to interact with.
There are two videos that can be accessed on the main page of the website that will show you what I’ve tried to explain.
TOS Homeschool Crew Members received a 1 month subscription as Elite Quest Travelers. Check the links below to read their opinions on this virtual world.
