It will be like a magical trip we always wanted when we were kids – make sure your kids won’t miss it!

Aldric Chang, Managing Director of MediaFreaks, the creators of The Travels of Wiglington and Wenks, explained: “Cartoon characters have fired the imagination of children for a long time but it is only the advent of the internet that has transformed games from being simply time-passing to aiding discovery and invention. A virtual world for kids is the perfect medium to do this. ”
