Club penguin website - worth paying for?

Found 4th Aug 2010
Anyone pay for this? My kids love it but can only use very limited things so was considering buying it.

If I have 2 kids on there, do I need to pay twice? One for each of them

I have a friend with a little sister who plays it and from what ive seen (i also have an account.. She strong armed me into it to play Card jitsu... honest!) it does open up a lot of stuff and makes it more enjoyable.

Im pretty sure you would have to pay twice as they are 2 separate accounts.

let them share accounts

It will be 2 accounts needed.... to be honest, I didnt think you got much more than a free account!

That's what I'm considering doing because they are young anyways - but I have 1 boy and 1 girl so one would rather have pink and the other black and so on - and we have 2 laptops and 1 home PC so they would be able to go on at the same time if they wanted

No... which was why I said above you'd need 2 accounts!

My son and daughter both have club penguin accounts, age 10 and 6 and both go on at the same time they have asked in the past to sign up for payment thing and after looking into it there isn't a great deal of extras to be had ,tbh , also they go through phases as they dont bother for months and then out the blue its club penguin again !!! imo i wouldnt bother ,

That wasn't a question - I was stating that if I did buy 2 accounts then they would be able to go on at the same time on different computers

That's exactly what I am wondering. My daughter has been playing it for about 2 months and my son has just gotten into it. If I do buy it wont be right now, was going to see how they go over the next month before buying. I have £10 in Argos vouchers so would be able to buy 6 months worth for them both for £29.98.

It was said in answer to "let them share accounts" and starting "thats what we were considering!

Anyway... yes you can have 2 accounts on different PCs, but you would need to pay twice unless one was using a free account - and the username couldnt be transferred when the other wasnt playing. Personally though, i dont think the pay account has anything of real value and the real game is in the free account. Why not just trial on one account for a month?

My kids all have a paid membership. My youngest has two accounts (both paid for).

Subscribing offers the ability to buy clothing, wigs & furniture (with in-game currency).
It also allows ownership of up to 18 virtual pets in the game ("Puffles").

I believe a subscriber is also offered early access to new elements in the game & also allows their homes (igloos) to be shown in the "Members Igloos" section.

WTF is this?

I was hesitant to spend the monthly subscription fee initially but, yes, they do play very regularly.

I have seen my youngest playing & it is presenting puzzles & tasks like a MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) but in a child-friendly environment where you can trust that Disney have implemented sufficient safeguards so that the kids are not pestered by others.

The clothing accessories available in Disney Stores are also very striking. Since playing began we have subsequently bought some of the physical models & collect the trading cards (that have codes to type into the online game to unlock in-game items).

It is a very clever marketing & revenue generating model for Disney. Yes, when compared to free alternatives it is hard to justify the cost, but I know they play for hours at a time so they "get their money's worth". I feel like a proper parent now!

BFN,

Dont forget Moshi Monsters and Bin Weevils, thiey should lighten your wallet a bit too.

Club Penguin really good for the kids and membership worthwhile for the peace and quiet.
Lots of different games when the membership is paid also. Am sure they will keep interested for a while.
