What are the Virtuals™?

The Virtuals game takes children on a hero’s journey to make the world a better place.

Overview

3D aliens teleport from a parallel world to play with kids via a smartphone or tablet.

To start, kids can meet 3 superheroes from Virtual World, Koko, Boomi and Ozi, each with unique powers. As kids pass adventure challenges they also learn about virtues and develop character strengths.

With Boomi, kids develop the superpower of courage. With Ozi it’s honesty. With Koko it’s kindness. More heroes are coming soon.

The stories and challenges along the journey are backed by Dr. Victoria Talwar Ph.D and her 15 years of leading research and expertise in children’s pro-social development.

To access the magic 3D portals to Virtual World, kids use physical hero cards and wall stickers that interact with the mobile game. This is what we sell.

Key Life Skills Learned

We wanted to help kids grow in an important way. There’s already a ton of awesome educational apps for academic topics like language, math, science and so on. But, like most parents, we’d like our kids to develop other strengths too. We thought simply encouraging praiseworthy behavior throughout the day (without 8 or 9 nagging reminders) could be a great start.

We set out to develop a game helping children be mindful of positive qualities to help them grow through real life challenges and opportunities to help others. We turned to virtues and character strengths; those universal qualities valued across all cultures and fundamental to human growth, peace and prosperity. Key capacities we aim to encourage include courage, honesty, kindness, perseverance, flexibility, creativity, patience, generosity, responsibility, tolerance, service and more.

Our approach is to educate through inspiration and fun. We want kids to see virtues as the powerful superpowers they really are.

Toys that Amaze & Engage

All of the Virtuals™ physical products offer additional value when used with our special AR (Augmented Reality) app (downloaded FREE from the Android and iOS app stores). With the magic of Augmented Reality technology, each product comes to life in 3D when you look at it with a smart phone or tablet (that’s running our app of course).

The physical products transform into cross-dimensional portals, and superheroes teleport from another world to engage children in stories and games that foster character strengths and virtues. Watch our video to really see how it works.

What You Can Buy

In The Virtuals Store, we sell two physical products that unlock magical portals and give access to the epic quests:
