Moshi Monsters

Posted on | September 13, 2009 | 19 Comments

This is the latest virtual world, aimed at kids where they have their own monster and can interact with the other monsters.

The usual routine applies. Money or “Rox” are earned by playing games and the Rox can then be spent in buying accessories for the monster’s room etc. You look after your monster, naming it, feeding it, interacting in a fairly similar way to Webkinz.

Friends can be made and messages can be sent on each monster’s noticeboard.  The monsters are cute. They can be made different colours, you can buy them clothes and accessories once you’re a paid up member. There’s a Moshi Monster world to explore, alot of which is restricted until you pay your membership fee which isn’t cheap at £4.95 per month. You can buy seeds and grow your own Moshlings.

There are discussion boards and news in the form of a blog.

The main observations my children had with Moshi Monsters when compared to the similar Club Penguin or Webkinz was that Moshi Monsters seemed to require a higher level in reading. Whilst this was fine for the older children, it proved problematic for the 5 and 4 year olds.  They had to guess  a lot of the time when trying to complete games.

In saying that, if your child can read, the games to date have looked fairly educational. General knowledge, maths, reasoning and spelling all tested which is good.

The children also gave out about the short interval of time to harvest their moshlings and that most of theirs escaped. But they did agree they preferred the uncrowded feel of Moshi Monsters when compared to the initial mayhem of Club Penguin.

Alas they still missed the fun of the secret missions of Club Penguin so are returning to play it more in preference to staying with Moshi Monsters.

Would recommend Moshi Monsters only if your child can read. I have bought 4 of my kids a month’s membership to see how they get on with it before signing up for any further length of time.

    Hi, everyone. I have been on moshi monsters for nearly a year now and I think it is really enjoyable. All the forums are great and the different places you can go are really exciting. I do understand that with the harder things like the Daily challenge, it has quite hard questions that little ones may not be able to master but I do think it is very educational and I have lots of fun at the same time. I also like Club penguin but it is very crowded there and to be honest, you can’t interact with so many people because nobody sees when you say something. I love moshi monsters and I am a member myself and I hope you like it too. Georgina xx

    Moshi monsters is cool, but the games are limited, and the things are really expensive. Like, you get 15 rox in a games and a ribbonis about 50 rox

    Is is possible to trace a moshi montster message sent last Friday February 12, 2010?. Is it possible to get identification on who sent it?. This is very important to me please.

    Hoping to hear from you asap.


    I am having problems with my e-mails, is there any possibility you could text me also incase I cannot get into my e-mail at home. I would really appreciate this as I am very concerned as a mother of an x moshi monster member.

    Hi Angela,
    Unfortunately, I am not connected at all with moshi monsters, I just reviewed the website as my children were using it. So I cannot help you with your above query.

    I had a look on the website and it looks like you can email your concerns to

    Hope you get some assistance there. Best of luck.
