Can You Keep a Secret? Secret Bear World Is Fun To Play! (Giveaway)

by Jill Berry

 

I’m not ashamed to admit that I hate most video game music. I’m not a gamer but I live in a house of people who play video games. From time to time, my son will play a game where the background soundtrack is grating and loud. With the music from the game blaring out of the speakers, I’ll find myself unable to concentrate on anything else. I literally can’t hear myself think.

When the music started for Secret Bear World, I was pleasantly surprised. No loud tinny music emanated from my computer’s speakers. I actually had a calm feeling come over me as I sat and listened to the game playing. The music in Secret Bear World was a pleasant surprise. There were other surprises to be found in Secret Bear World.

SecretBearWorld.com is a new world for kids to explore. Since the kids play Webkinz and Club Penguin all the time, I was interested to see how Secret Bear World stacked up. Major difference is that you don’t need to buy a stuffed toy to play the game, like Webkinz.

To get started in Secret Bear World, you first choose a bear. You can choose from one of seven bears: honey, brown, panda, polar, koala, spectacled, and spirit bear. Once you’ve chosen what type of bear you want, then you name the bear. If you choose a very common name, you’ll probably have to customize it with numbers. Choose a bear name and password that your child will remember. Before playing with your new bear friend, you’ll have to wait for the confirmation email to be sent to your email address.

Once you receive the confirmation email, your child is ready to play. After choosing from a list of servers — Gold, Silver, Diamond, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire – your child can enter Secret Bear World. The first thing your child will se is her very own Bear Phone. What kid doesn’t love a phone?

The Bear Phone is your personal guide to exploring Secret Bear World. You’ll find it on the bottom left corner…close at hand for when you need your bear to go somewhere or do something. Once you punch in your choice on the Bear Phone you can go to your house; travel around Secret Bear World; play games, such as Rocket Bear, Ninja Bear, Magic Lamp; shop for toys at Mr. Fuzzpants’ Toy Chest or try on a new outfit at Honey Fashion.

In order to create a safe virtual world within Secret Bear World, children and theirs parents may select two chat versions. The first chat uses a predefined menu of greetings, questions, and conversational statements, plus emoticons and postcards. The second chat is a custom chat with language filters in place to block inappropriate language from being used. Secret Bear World uses advanced safety measures to ensure a safe online experience for kids.

What is the scoop on Secret Bear World? Secret Bear World is a virtual world where kids can play games, dress themselves in colorful costumes, decorate their homes, and safely interact with other children. Your child can play Secret Bear World on the family computer. The game is designed for children 6 to 14 years of age.

There is no charge to play in Secret Bear World. You can play for free, however, you can purchase a Gold Bear Card Membership. The upgraded membership gives you access to secret levels of virtual merchandise and special events. If you purchase a Gold Bear Card, the parent or child will pay $7.95 per month. For 6 months, the charge is $6.65 per month. And for 12 months of access to the Gold membership in Secret Bear World the charge goes down to $5 per month.

We’re giving away 2 Full Year Memberships

2 winners will get a Gold Membership with 12 months of playtime! To enter this giveaway, leave a comment letting us know what you think your child’s favorite part of Secret Bear World will be.
