Secret Bear World is a virtual world where children ages 6-14 (although my 4 yr old loves it) can have fun playing cool games designed especially for kids. I normally do not allow my children to play online games but this once I allowed an exception. When I was asked to review the Secret Bear World online game site for kids I thought I’d have a look at it first. To my surprise my 4 yr old son screeched and said, “Yes, yes, yes. I want to play that.” Since Secret Bear world is free to sign up, explore bear world and play games I started him an account.
Sign up process was very easy. We began by picking a bear name (his choice), a bear (he chose the Panda) and secret password (only I know). They didn’t ask for any personal information but I did use my email address for verification. Verified, signed in and let him play with my guidance. The scenery is colorful and easy for kids to navigate. Changing rooms is as easy as walking through a door or walking off the page.
A few things I noticed is there’s no navigation like arrows to tell kids they can go this way or that. The doors to the stores don’t open you just walk through them. My son didn’t seem to have a problem with it but he did need guidance.
Children can express themselves with colorful costumes and furniture for their very own virtual bear home, and safely interact with other children. Children can play in the beautiful Ice Castle and the sparkling waterfall in the Rain Forest, hang out at the beach (my son’s favorite) and shop in the City for virtual clothing and furniture before sharing milkshakes with other bears.

Can’t show you any more rooms than this cause as you know this is SECRET Bear World.
Joining Secret Bear World is free of charge, although only members who purchase Gold Bear Card membership privileges will be able to play in secret levels of virtual merchandise for their Bears, unlock all of secret bear world and get you into special events. This site is new so who knows what many other exciting things they could have lined up.
Other Thoughts: When my daughter first saw the site she said that it played a lot like Club Penguin which many of her friends play online. She said she couldn’t wait to tell them about SecretBearWorld.com.
One other thing. Your child can easily play on an Ipod or Cell phone without having to download any apps. Just visit the site, log in and play along.
Here’s a video that shares what Secret Bear World is all about.
