Introducing “Amazing World” from Ganz StudiosVideo games. We’ve heard all the reasons why kids shouldn’t play them. And, while many of those reasons are more than valid, what we don’t often hear about is the benefits of letting our kids game.
Now, don’t get me wrong and assume I want your kids gaming incessantly. We still have to set boundaries, and make sure our kids aren’t trading gaming for physical activity. We also need to be certain they’re not more virtual connections than human ones. If we can keep those things in balance, here are a few benefits of gaming for children.
- Gaming can increase problem solving skills in younger children.
- Some video games seem to sharpen scientific skills.
- Online gaming and social networking help teach children basic technical skills and communication in the Information Age.
- Studies suggest that gaming improves creativity, decision-making and perception.
- Gaming may improve cognitive skills.
Ganz recently launched the new 3D virtual world that is free-to-play, and packed with adventures and challenges for young children. Kids start out by registering a “Zing,” a signature character they can name and customize. As kids complete challenges, they’re rewarded with prizes, which they can use to furnish their “home zone” and more. Registering is easy, and kids can enjoy the free version or unlock additional benefits with a monthly subscription.
In addition to the online game, Ganz offers Zing plush toys and figures that you can purchase and activate within the Amazing World game. Each Zing toy comes with exclusive prizes and a virtual representation of that figure or plush within the game.
The Amazing World gives kids an opportunity to discover, create, think and make new friends in a controlled environment. Think your child would enjoy it? Go on over to the Amazing World site and register for FREE after you enter to win 2 Amazing World toys below.
