Secret Builders is announcing today an online virtual world with educational games for children.
This world lets kids create two-dimensional avatars, or virtual characters, and play about 30 different mini-games spread throughout the different territories of the site. The company hopes to differentiate itself by weaving themes of creativity and cultural literacy into the games. Game sites for this demographic are popular right now, particularly since Disney bought Club Penguin last year for $700 million.
The site is the inspiration of Umair Khan, who founded the Menlo Park, Calif.-based company in January 2007. Khan was a math teacher before he went back to school at MIT, where he enjoyed associating with creative writers and literature majors. In this way, the site is built to reassure parents, who can take heart that their kids are learning something while goofing off on the site. Membership is free now, but the site will introduce premium subscriptions over time and let members use real money to buy virtual goods.
Khan said that the company is open to product placement and advertising, but in some circles targeting kids with ads is frowned upon.

A113 is a classroom number at the California Institute of Arts, where many talented animators studied.
It’s in Lilo and Stitch a second time when Stitch pretends to be a giant monster after he makes a San Francisco replica!
IG99 could also be a Star Wars reference since one of the bounty hunters in The Empire Strikes Back is named IG88. I’m sure the heading was concocted by the writter of the article and had nothing to do with the report itself.
Jopnesy, why are you mouthing off like joppa the hut to someone who complimented the article?


On the wiki there’s a bigger list of movies and animations in which that easter-egg appeared. IT’S NOT JUST DISNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What kind of “secret mark” would I leave if I knew it would be seen by millions? Is an inside joke present as an Easter egg in animated films created by alumni of California Institute of the Arts, referring to the classroom number used by graphic design and character animation students at the school that was used by John Lasseter and Brad Bird among others. The writer of this might not be at blame for the confusion, Headlines are often written by an editor. Not only did you not read the whole article, you didn’t even look at all the pictures. In doing so, it joins a bunch of rivals going after the kids online game market, from Zookazoo to Club Penguin.
The games are entertaining but don’t necessarily stand out from other Flash-based online sites for kids. Kids can stumble upon art, science and math facts built into the site’s images and games. He became an entrepreneur, but after he got married and raised three kids, he decided to focus on ways to promote creativity for children. It’s not clear to me that a site like this one, without a big investor or mothership, is going to stand out. Still, the site has created joint activities with Art in Action, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, WildPlanet Toy Company and StoneSoup Magazine.
First-year graphic designers and animators studied here before they went on to work for Disney and Pixar, and the mark that classroom has made was left on many of our favorite films and TV shows.
When I went thru Graphic Arts course, the school asked me to make out the diplomas for our graduates. And the art style isn’t anything special for those who have toyed with Webkinz or Neopets. President” contest, in which players submit a photo and extended caption addressed to president-elect Barack Obama about an issue important to them.


The idea is to make literature and other educational topics come alive through virtual worlds. That will certainly slow down communication as the site grows, but it’s a pretty solid way to filter out inappropriate material. It’s good that Secret Builders is trying to shoot for something that parents will prefer over sites that have no educational value.
The internet would have conspiracy pages dedicated to them, and I’d just be sitting at home laughing at having driven millions of people to the brink of madness. The Flash-based site includes popular art and writing contests, a kids magazine and room-building tools.
Arianna Huffington (her avatar, to the left) has agreed to publish the winning submission on The Huffington Post on President’s Day. After a couple of months of testing, the site has 5,000 members in 27 countries — all through word of mouth.
The first time your kid hears about King Lear might be through a cartoon character in Secret Builders, Khan said.
But it could be hard to convince anyone to pay for it when there are so many free sites out there. They may not know it, but they will be painting over a famous piece by a well-known artist. Another direct competitor coming soon is Knowledge Adventure, which is making a kids online world based on its educational game brand. I’m going to be watching every one of these movies to see which of these screenshots are photoshopped.
They didn’t even try to throw in a guess as to what the number is, just threw a bunch of screenshots in it and mentioned the number.
