Aside from the strong educational element, Petra’s Planet offers children the chance to enjoy hours of fun exploring the world; playing mini-games and taking part in quests and challenges, either individually or playing with friends in a safe and controlled environment. With learning through play a key part of Petra’s Planet, the virtual world offers one of the UK’s richest game content, boosting over 47 individual educational and fun mini-games.
Other players in the virtual world are visible and the site gives children the opportunity to communicate with each other but only using pre-defined phrases, signs, expressions and funny gestures, thus ensuring the complete safety of visitors.

He continued, "Every country offers something different to discover, nurturing children’s curiosity and provoking interest and the opportunity to learn about different cultures. Each location that Petra visits is incredibly authentic and enables children to get a real feel for each country."
New content will be created and added to Petra’s Planet continuously, with new regions being introduced in the months ahead.
Petra’s Planet is free to play or membership packages are available. Alternatively, virtual items can be bought via micro transactions, called ‘Kipps’ starting at £1 for 200 Kipps or earned by reaching certain levels on quests and challenges.
