With thousands of members from 20 different countries already signed up, Wilby.tv has officially launched its English version in the United States and Canada. “The Universe of WILBY™” is a fun, educational, 100% safe, free online social universe for children and their family.
Founded by David Banford, Jimmy Bouchard and Rejean Gauthier, three Canadian entrepreneurs and fathers concerned about Internet use among young people, and education at school and in the home, “The Universe of WILBY™” is an online social universe helping children six and older and families around the world to flourish and grow healthily by offering effective personal development tools and a safe, fun and educational online entertainment environment.
“The Universe of Wilby™” is designed for children aged 6 to 12 years. With parental support, its young members can create their own avatars, express themselves, communicate, learn other languages, earn points, watch videos, post their accomplishments, earn rewards and participate in multiplayer educational games already played in over 20,000 primary schools.
This online world also offers an educational animated TV series where the main character, a ten year old boy named Wilby, experiences the daily realities of today’s children and tells his stories to correspondents who write to him from around the world.
For parents, WILBY.TV represents a great alternative to other virtual worlds such clubpenguin.com, barbie.com and moshimonsters.com. Although very entertaining, they do not compare in the strength of educational and constructive support offered by “The Universe of Wilby™”.
Available for only a few months in French, WILBY.TV already has thousands of active members from around the world and its popularity is growing every day! Adaptations in Spanish and Mandarin will be available in the coming months. “The Universe of WILBY™” is much more than an online world! It’s actually a fast growing social movement rallying children and families worldwide around a common cause: the positive development of the youth of today and tomorrow.
To accelerate its international expansion, the company has implemented a strategically designed affiliate program for web entrepreneurs who wish to become involved in marketing WILBY.TV in their area.
