Woozworld - Explore your avatar identity & fame in a live chat virtual world



Trendy virtual world with heavy push to buy, buy, buy.

What parents need to know

Educational value

Woozworld - Explore your avatar identity & fame in a live chat virtual world wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.

Ease of play

It's easy to establish an account and choose your avatar, decorate Unitz, and play games. During this review, the app was extremely slow to load at times, and the app's chat feature was glitchy.


Violent messages are against Woozworld's terms of use. Some fighting messages reportedly have been seen on the website; we didn't observe any during the review of the app. Users can report other users for rules violations by clicking on their avatars and tapping "report" under their profiles. 


Chats about "singles parties" were observed during this review. Some clothing choices for female avatars may be considered suggestive and inappropriate for tween users. The Woozworld terms of use prohibit sexual content. Users can report other users for rules violations by clicking on their avatars and tapping "report" under their profiles. 


Chat filter and rules are intended to minimize inappropriate language. We didn't observe any swear words or words intended to circumvent the filter during this review; however, such language has been reported on the website. 


Purchasing lots of things -- for your avatar, room, and food -- is advertised quite heavily throughout Woozworld. In-app purchases range from $1.99 to $19.99. VIP monthly access is $7.99/month.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Woozworld - Explore your avatar identity & fame in a live chat virtual world is the companion app to the website Woozworld for tweens and young teens. If kids already have an account on the website, they can use the same username and password for the app. Kids new to Woozworld can create an account and select an avatar on the app without using the website version. Kids decorate their Unitz (rooms), play games to earn points to buy things, chat with others, go to "parties," and buy stuff, which requires earning currency by playing games or buying points via in-app purchase. There's also a VIP $7.99 monthly membership. The numerous buying options are advertised as kids travel around Woozworld. The app says its chat is safe with strong filters and rules, although some users reportedly try to circumvent them.

What's it about?

Register for an account on WOOZWORLD by choosing from one of three language-based communities; enter a date of birth, an email (a parent's email for kids under 13), and a password. Create your avatar. Begin to play by creating a room (Unitz), dressing the avatar, exploring different areas, and chatting with other avatars. Play games to earn points, shop, host or attend parties, and more. Woozworld includes many places to explore and lots of ways for kids to express themselves and buy things for their avatars.

Is it any good?


Woozworld - Explore your avatar identity & fame in a live chat virtual world has lot of social rules and safety guidelines in place. But the overwhelming message to buy, buy, buy can detract from the better aspects of this virtual world. During the course of this review, not a lot of substantive chat conversations between kids were observed (most were about selling and buying stuff or were invites to "singles" parties). Also, slow loading times made moving from place to place very difficult. (At the time of this review, the developer had included a note on the App Store that it is aware of this problem and was working to fix it.) Posting messages through the app's chat feature also was​ glitchy. Although Woozworld's overall safety standards and community rules for kids are admirable, and the virtual world has many places to visit, some parents of tweens may find the consumerism and party push too much for younger kids new to virtual worlds.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about how much time or money your kid is allowed to spend on this virtual world. Set screen time limits and rules for in-app purchases.

  • Links to Woozworld's thoughtful guidelines and code of conduct are right there on the main screen of the app for you to read with your kid when he or she creates an account. Take advantage of the opportunity to establish some basic virtual-world rules with your kid.

  • Read Common Sense's Online Worlds for Young Kids to understand more about why kids want to spend time on these types of sites and apps and tips on how you can make them as safe as possible.

Woozworld review

Woozworld WAS a really nice virtual game but i don't know what happened.. the game has a lot of bullying problems, hacking and, even though there are censors for bad words- alot of cursing. I would not recommend this game for children under thirteen.

Be Smart

I played this game since 2012-2015, and i look at it as a good game. All your complains about how your children has been in a bad situation in the game well thats just stupid, yes they can work around there bad words and yes there are people who want to do things there but thats only if you go to the bad side of woozworld which there is not a bad side. Your child decides to talk to boys and decides to do what they should not do but thats not woozworlds fault. you cant touch someone on woozworld there is no punching dot the only way they can be violent is if they do this -Punches- But thats just kids being dumb. If you think this game is dangerous then your wrong they make this game 100% safe for childs to play, if your child decides to talk mean or work around there words then thats your childs issue talk to them about that. Its not woozworlds fault that your child is going around asking perverts to have it with them nor is it woozworlds fault for your child working around there bad words, be smart and learn to understand that your actions is your fault not someone else. Parents if you think that your child is not getting a good example to this game then tell your child to stop going on the game. Do not come here and say all these bad stuff just cause your child had a bad time or a bad example on this game because remember your child is in everything you said and that means that your child was part of it all. Your child is the one who did everything bad that you said, trust me. I saw it all throughout 4 years I know this game by heart and i know a lot of kids and perverts that come on, but i dont hand around them there is a block button you know so if your child is smart enough to not hand with the bad crowd then she/he should know what to do ;)
