ROBLOX ~ Virtual Playground & Workshop

by Karen Hand

Join Millions of Players for Free!  What is ROBLOX?

ROBLOX is an online virtual playground and workshop — where kids of all ages can safely interact, create, have fun, and learn. It’s unique in that practically everything in this infinite playground is designed and constructed by individual members of the ROBLOX community.

Roblox
Each player starts by choosing an avatar and giving it an identity. They can then explore ROBLOX — interacting with others by chatting, playing games, or collaborating on creative projects.

Each player is also given their own piece of undeveloped real estate along with a virtual toolbox with which to design and build anything desired — be it a navigable skyscraper, a working helicopter, a giant pinball machine, a multiplayer “Capture the Flag” game or some other, yet-to-be-dreamed-up object or activity.

By participating and by building cool stuff, ROBLOX members can earn specialty badges as well as ROBLOX dollars (“ROBUX”). In turn, they can shop the online catalog to purchase avatar clothing and accessories as well as premium building materials, interactive components, and working mechanisms.

It looks like a lot of fun for kids. Is it only for children? How does one insure that ther are no inappropriate actions?

There is a video telling a little more about Roblox that will play before you even sign up. Also, in the basic description of what Roblox is, it states "ROBLOX is an online virtual playground and workshop — where kids of all ages can safely interact, create, have fun, and learn." As far as complete assurance I would say that would be with what your child(ren) does. To me though, it sounds like this is very kid-friendly and it's set-up where inappropriate things can't occur. That is my interpretation.

Sounds like something totally up my husband's alley, when he was a kid. He's an engineer, so he loves building stuff! The things they come up with nowadays...wow. Wish we would've had that in the '80s. Super cool!
