Welcome to my Top 10 Virtual Worlds for Girls as voted by you on Facebook, Youtube and your comments here. I update the list every year. Here is the 2015 update. Some of the virtual world games on this list are aimed at younger girls and others are for older girls. Feel free to recommend any new games for next years update or for me to review. Enjoy.
1. Moviestar Planet
MovieStarPlanet is a virtual world for girls that is social online universe where each player is a movie star. MovieStarPlanet aims to provide children aged between 8 and 15 years with a safe, secure and fun social networking platform. MovieStarPlanet is free to play, however, players can pay to gain access to extended features and fast-track their rise to fame.
The movie star characters earn Fame and StarCoins (the currency of MovieStarPlanet) when other users watch their movies. StarCoins can be used to buy costumes, animations, backdrops for movies, and much more. By playing and interacting with friends and by participating in creative competitions, players move up in the MovieStarPlanet world. Life is never boring on MovieStarPlanet – it’s all about playing, being social, and developing and showing your creative skills.
What does it cost?
Everyone can play MovieStarPlanet for free. Players move through the game by making movies and playing games which earn StarCoins. Most features of the game are free to all users; however, you can pay to upgrade to a VIP account which gives players access to more game features, clothes and other items. Players can also purchase extra StarCoins using a credit card or cell phone. Standard credit card practices apply and we delete users who attempt to make unauthorised purchases.
2. Animal Jam
National Geographic Animal Jam is an online playground filled with fun & adventure for girls who love animals and the outdoors. A virtual world for girls where they can discover real-world plant and animal facts, plus follow enriching storylines paired with National Geographic’s multimedia educational content!
Create animal avatars with cute anonymous names made from mashups of suggested words (e.g., “Handsome Wackycat”). Then pick a place to visit, play games, meet other players, or shop. Most games don’t require or reinforce knowledge of the natural world. Social activities include chatting, game challenges, visits to buddies’ dens, or sending friendly Jam-a-Grams. Winning games earns gems, which can buy accessories, furniture, or a pet. New “animal jammers” be warned; Jamaa is a busy place, and new players may need to ask others for help.

3. Chit Chat City
Chit Chat City is an online virtual world in which children and teenagers get to draw their own avatars, clothes and accessories using brushes on a 3D canvas. You also get to meet, socialize and mingle with other players from around the world, affect the virtual game world by building and furnishing your own home, block by block, the way you want it and where you want it in the city. To walk around you hold the mouse button.
Virtual worlds are pretty amazing, and continue to get more so every day. However, many are one sided, and while social stuff is fun, having other options to keep you interested is even better. And this is where Chit Chat City comes out best.
Apart from getting to draw your own avatar, complete with clothing and accessories, all utilizing a 3D canvas and meeting other people from around the world, but you also get to build and furnish your own house. And not like “choose this layout; pick a paint color; done.” Its like – you actually build the entire thing exactly as you want from the ground up. No matter where you want your door, windows, bedroom, what-have-you – you can put it where you want.
Your house is part of a larger neighborhood made up of homes created by other people from all over the world. Once your house is built, you can add furniture, meet new people, farm, get a pet, and have company and if you are really feeling motivated, you can also turn part of your house into a shop!
Chit Chat City is free to play. (Unless you want to speed things up buying credits).
