Theo's been using the site to complete projects and earn badges, kind of like scouts, without the organization. There are tons of themes to choose from, users complete and post tasks to earn virtual badges and can also buy actual badges for $5 each. He got a new messenger bag for Christmas that we'll sew his badges onto. His first badge earned was Minecrafter, shocking. Theo doesn't have many extracurricular activities, so this has been perfect for him. I'm not thrilled about the social aspect - you can follow users, have people follow you, and leave comments for each other. The good news is that kids who sign up must have a linked parent account, so I get emails every time he posts a project or comment, so it's easy to keep tabs on what's going on. He's working on his animation badge, and came up with this little movie today, I love it!
