MMORPG.com reviewer and resident kids stuff expert Carolyn Koh takes a look at UB Funkeys, the children's collectible MMO.
Where shall we start?
In order to access the game, you require UB - the USB critter that plugs into your computer, and the smaller, more colorful Funkeys. The Funkey sits on UB's hollow back and contact plates on its feet transmit data to the base. Your online avatar changes to that particular Funkey on the fly. Strong magnets connect the Funkey to UB and little hands will manage to do that quite well.
The UB Funkey starter pack costs about $20 and consists of UB, the software and two funkeys which give you access to a portal or two and their Funkey house. The starter pack as well as additional Funkeys can be purchased at your big-box stores such as Wal-Mart, Walgreens and Targets as well as online retailers. Once your software is installed and your game patched, off you go into the world of Terrapina.
