Club Penguin is one of many popular virtual worlds for kids that incorporate virtual games and goods. Another popular startup is Habbo Hotel: Instead of an antarctic theme, that site features an urban apartment theme. Another, IMVU is a small and growing startup that combines virtual games and chat with more fantastical landscapes and avatars.

Subscribers choose to pay between USD$5.95 per month and USD$57.95 per year to “[d]ress up your penguin, decorate your igloo, be the first to discover new areas and lots more.”

Founded in March 2005, Club Penguin features avatars of animated penguins that live in an antarctic virtual world. Users can play games together, chat, and furnish virtual homes with virtual accessories.

Disney buys Club Penguin in $700 million deal — virtual worlds have arrived?
more than 700,000 paying subscribers. It says it is completely funded through subscriptions.
