CHRISMAS HAS COME TO GARDENPARTY!!!

The festive season is finally upon us and what better way to celebrate the time of year, than by coming together with friends and family for the season of giving and good will. But what about those who you cannot be with, the ones who live abroad or far away? Keeping in touch can be difficult, but only if you allow it to be. Children these days are making friends and staying in touch in a way that only 10 years ago, was never thought possible, simply through the wonder of the internet.

There are now many methods to communicate and interact online, and stats show that this means is ever on the increase amongst the younger generations. Online virtual worlds have been a new medium for these youngsters to stay connected with their friends across the country as well as with their grandparents and cousins. They have proved to be somewhat of a lifeline in bringing these people closer.

GardenParty, the safe and fun online world for kids aged 5-12 years old, is a world where they can not only take part in an array of collaborative and exciting activities, it has also bridged that gap to connect cousins, grandchildren, friends and many more together over the holiday season which can be an especially important time of year. GardenParty allows them to play, interact and work in teams together, along with the all important moderated chat feature.

To celebrate the holiday season, from the 9th of December 2008, GardenParty was transformed into a magical winter wonderland. Of course, the usual array of surprises and rewards (with a festive theme) will be in store for the children along with holiday themed activities. Gardeners can expect many exciting updates at various points in the lead up to Christmas… but when they can be expected is to remain a mystery!
