Review and Giveaway: All Star Buddies

Play Ball!

All-Star Buddies were created by two Moms who have a passion for sports, fitness and a healthy lifestyle. As their children became more interested in the Internet, the Moms noticed a gap between programs that were created for entertainment and those developed for education. They set out to bridge that gap and “All Star Buddies” were born.

The sports themed plush dolls belong to the virtual world of Varsity Heights. Varsity Heights is a place where kids of all ages and skill levels come together on an equal playing field to have fun, compete and socialize. Adventures come to life through playing games that are familiar like kick ball and that they’ve never played before, and through learning about new and exciting topics. In Varsity Heights, every kid can be an “All Star!” no matter what their sports ability is in real life. Among the different “zones”, players will find various games and activities where they will compete for coins that can be cashed in at virtual stores like Fluff ‘n Stuff for customized features and accessories, such as a crazy orange faux hawk hairdo, silly eyes or a funny mouth.

All Star Buddies was nice enough to send me Chip, the Golf Buddy for review. The doll was incredibly cute and my daughter immediately scooped him up. We signed up for an account and began to play at Varsity Heights. The website reminds me of the WebKinz concept, but sports themed. The virtual playground was easy to navigate and the games were lots of fun. My daughter is only 3, so most of the games were too difficult for her (the target age is 6+), but she loved participating in some of the online games with my help. It was fun to see other All Star Buddies walking around Varsity Heights… can even chat with them!
