Eight-month old Woozworld now hosts over 1 million user profiles and avatars, from users in over 80 countries. In addition, Woozworld's users have created over 2 million virtual spaces. Woozworld targets users aged 9 to 14 and lets users create virtual businesses, detail virtual avatars, and set up activities. Woozworld protects its users personal information and is compliant with COPPA. Woozworld partners with Facebook, Zong, and prepaid card Wallie Card.
"We are extremely proud of what Woozworld has accomplished in just eight short months," said Eric Brassard, CEO of Woozworld, in a press statement. "Through our highly engaging worlds that offer relevant user experiences to our tween and teen audiences, a safe online environment where parents can let their kids have fun and learn at the same time, and a smart business model, we've made Woozworld a success in less than a year."
Woozworld launched late last year as part of Tribal Nova, as an update of its KidStudio virtual world. Where KidStudio targeted kids six and younger, Woozworld went for an older audience of kids 9 to 12. The idea behind Woozworld was to create a youth virtual world that supported user-created content, a feature that's usually only seen in virtual worlds for adults. Woozworld split from Tribal Nova and raised a $3 million round in its own right earlier this year.
