If you have kids who love to play games online, like ours, then you have most likely heard of ROBLOX. For those who haven’t, ROBLOX is the FREE ultimate virtual universe where imagination rules and has quickly become the #1 gaming site for kids and teens! Our kids love to play the user-created video games and it has become a pretty much daily thing for them. Since we have multiple computers, they each have their own account and can play together in different ‘worlds’ and games. There are over 15 million users, primarily between 8 and 18 years of age, logging in each month to create and play!
ROBLOX users are able to create their own indie video games using the easy-to-use developer tools and instantly launch them for millions of gamers to access and play across PC, Mac and mobile devices (Android and iOS). We can even play it on our Kindle Fire HD. The best part – it is all FREE! This is a great way for kids to develop their own first ever video game AND have millions of gamers actually PLAY it! Our 10 year old really wants to create his own video games when he gets older so this is an awesome way for him to learn some of these skills at his own pace.
There is also premium in-game content available for purchase. You can buy Robux, which is ROBLOX’s virtual currency, and use them for upgrades such as gear and items for your character and also Builders Club. Builders Club is a premium membership that enhances the ROBLOX experience. Member benefits include: a daily allowance of Robux depending on the membership subscribed to, sell and trade items and gear, create and open multiple places at the same time (free users can only have 1), remove external ads and replace them with user-created game ads, create “Mega Games” (or multiplayer games), and create your own groups. All of these benefits are available for each Builders Club subscription BUT the amount of each benefit differs between subscriptions.
ROBLOX gift cards make a great gift for young gamers since they can take advantage of the premium benefits included with Robux or even Builders Club, which starts at just $5.95 per month! Gift cards are available for purchase at most retail outlets where video games are sold, including Amazon.com, Wal-Mart, Target, GameStop, F.Y.E., and CVS Pharmacies.
