Wee World (weeworld.com) is an online social networking site and virtual world for teens and tweens that utilizes self-created avatars. Players can perform a variety of virtual activities, including finding and chatting with friends, playing games, spending money on products and services related to their avatar, and being marketed to. The site professes to restrict registration to those 13 years and older.
The WeeMee iPhone app is NOT an online companion to the social networking site; it is simply an avatar creator. The avatars can be assigned to contacts, saved, and shared on Facebook and Twitter. The avatars bear a resemblance in size and proportion to South Park figures. Users can start from scratch or can edit pre-fabbed WeeMee’s, tweaking hair, skin color, face shape, eye color, hair style, facial hair, eyeglasses, hatwear, clothing,food, hobby, and environment.
As a mom of a 2 and 4 year old, I downloaded this not realizing it was based on a teenage social networking site. Once I delved into the WeeMee virtual world, I became filled with dread for the dawn of the teen years. The iPhone app itself, however, since it is unconnected to the virtual world, is actually rather innocuous and entertaining. My 4 year son and I had fun creating and saving avatars and trying to fashion them after people we know. A word of caution: there are some in-app purchase opportunities to clothe your avatar in the latest trends, so beware your password security with the kids.
