Bloomers Island
https://bloomersisland.com/
Bloomers Island
A long time ago, before trucks and cars and big machines, a place was born where natural things came to life and flourished.
On Bloomers! Island the sun shines brightly, trees smile and fun-loving blooming flowers and vegetables play, discover new adventures, and learn how to grow tall and wise.
Bloomers! Island and the adorable cast of garden characters need you to make sure that everything keeps growing with plenty of sunshine and love. But just like their real life garden family and friends, they need your help to keep playing, keep discovering and keep growing, off the island too!
On Bloomers! Island, in Bloomers! Backyard or in Bloomers! Classroom - bring the island fun to life. The more you play, the more you?ll learn, and the more you know, the more you'll grow
The mission of Bloomers! is to bring the magical world of gardens, flowers, plants and nature to life, in exciting new ways for young children. When rich play meets a variety of play-grounds, and compels children to engage with the natural world around them in relevant and fun ways, developmental milestones can be reached, educational moments can be achieved, and most importantly, children learn to take the game offline and keep the play alive.

Poptropica
https://www.poptropica.com/
Poptropica is for kids 5-12
Poptropica was developed by Family Education Network (FEN), the makers of Funbrain.com. For over a decade, kids, teachers, librarians, and parents have enthusiastically turned to Funbrain for its interactive learning games, online books, and comics.
The popularity of Funbrain in schools prompted FEN to use its expertise to build a unique online experience for kids to enjoy during their free time.
In September 2007, FEN launched Poptropica, a virtual world in which kids explore and play in complete safety. Accessibility to this world for kids is important to the creators, which is why the Poptropica Islands are free for all kids to play.
Poptropica is published by Family Education Network, a part of Pearson, the education, services and technology company.

The metaverse.
http://www.metaverseroadmap.org/MetaverseRoadmapOverview.pdf
What happens when video games meet Web 2.0? When virtual worlds meet geospatial maps of the planet? When simulations get real and life and business go virtual? When you use a virtual Earth to navigate the physical Earth, and your avatar becomes your online agent?
