FIRST EVER PARENT APPROVED INTERNET SOCIALIZATION, CREATED by TWEEN GIRLS FOR GIRLS, AGES 8-14
Old Greenwich, CT, July 7, 2009 — Miss O & Friends® announced the launch of the Miss O Virtual World™. For the first time ever, Tween girls have a cool way to socialize in an age appropriate, parentally approved virtual world.
With their parent’s permission, girls can now:
- Dress, create & accessorize their personal moving avatars
- Socialize privately in their virtual rooms, which they decorate & furnish
- Socialize publicly at the virtual gym, computer auction center, fashion runway, auditorium & more
- Create a fashion show and play all sorts of interactive games
- Chat publicly or privately, free-style or through drop down menu in a secure arena
- Post messages on “The Miss O Wall™” for feedback, and join the many community generated interest groups
- Shop in the Miss O Mall™ for real and for their virtual world
- Diary in their own private book
- Publish their original stories or poems, virtually and for real
- Customize their music playlists
Advertisers can maximize exposure through the Miss O (virtual) Mall™, a section of the Miss O Virtual World™, offering real and virtual items for sale through a range of placements, including custom storefronts, free-standing signage, directory listings, static or video advertising, and multi-user custom games.
Juliette Brindak (20), co-founder & Chairperson, Miss O & Friends said, “Our Tween girl community tells us what they want and we are delivering in every way. We always strive to help girls build on their dreams, to do what they love to do in a healthy way. So now we are giving girls the opportunity to create their own world, to socialize and learn from other girls around the world through a parent approved environment.”
Miss O & Friends gives girls a chance of winning things they really want, but cannot buy. Such as winning tickets to impossible-to-get concerts, such as Hannah Montana or the Jonas Brothers; getting their original stories published and sold in bookstores across the county; or having their original designs for clothes sold to the public. Paul Brindak, CEO adds, “Delivering to the dreams of girls helps build self esteem. Take for example what we did with one of our six books, “Write-On.” 15 girls were voted as winners by our community to have their original stories published, which then sold in Barnes & Noble, Borders, Target.com and Amazon.com.”
