About Animal Jam
Animal Jam, found online at AnimalJam.com, is an online virtual playground for children who love animals and the outdoors created by the National Geographic Society to help foster those relationships.
According to their website, the goal of Animal Jam is to provide a safe environment that is also fun and engaging where kids can play online, while being inspired to explore and protect the natural world outside.
How Does It Work?
Kids can sign up as members completely for free, create an animal character of their own choosing with a custom name and begin participating in the virtual outdoor world. Registration does require a parent's email address for confirmation, information, and consent purposes. There are more benefits for members that sign up for paid subscriptions, if that is something you are interested in.
There are three different potential membership plans available for those customers who would like to upgrade from the basic free membership. The Month to Month membership plan costs $5.95, the six month membership costs $29.95, and the yearly plan costs $57.95.
Customers that choose an upgraded paid subscription have seven days from the date of purchase to evaluate their membership and to request a refund of their fees if they choose to cancel within this initial 7 days. Customers can cancel their memberships at any point after the initial 7 days as well, but they will not be eligible for a refund.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team with questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone, at 888-340-7313, by email at [email protected], or by submitting them directly to their website.
Animal Jam generally has positive reviews from parents and other users, though some parents have complained that they do not personally agree with the use of indoor video games as a way of stimulating a child's love of nature.
Is It Safe?
National Geographic promises that they have gone out of their way to ensure that this is a safe environment for children, and that parents should feel confident about their child's safety while participating in their gaming community.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Of course there are many different online providers of interactive games, for both adults and children, though not many have the same objective as Animal Jam.
