Club Penguin is a virtual world where children can play games, have fun and interact with each other.
Each player starts by choosing a penguin, giving it an identity, and then exploring Club Penguin. They can interact with other penguins by chatting, playing games, sending greeting cards, or using emotes (emotion icons) and using a set of predefined actions. By helping other participants and playing games, players earn virtual coins. Earned coins can be eventually used to buy clothing and accessories for their penguin or furniture for their igloo.
