Shidonni is a social network for kids. What is so impressive about it is how it allows their creativity to come to life! You create an animal with the simple in browser drawing tools and before you know it your little guy is running around. A few clicks later and he is eating food you have drawn for him and creating tiny offspring. There are plenty of other games for children to play on their own or with friends and they all make use of their customised creature. It is completly free to try so (as long as no one is looking) I heartedly recommend you give it a go. (Below is my creature Tyrone, he is a T-rex….ANYWAY!)
