Handipoints features a virtual world for kids and a chore chart system for families. Parents create printable online playing charts and kids earn points by checking off their tasks.
The more chores they do, the more points they earn. Kids can redeem their points for games, movies and clothes for their CoolCat kitty avatars in HandiLand. This is an online world where they can also talk to and play with other kids.
Kids can also redeem their points for real life rewards to keep them motivated. Parents can use this system to set up allowance programs and more online.
Unlike other children's sites, Handipoints is a practical chore solution for families married to a fun and motivational virtual world for kids.
