SALT LAKE CITY, UT –(Pixelkin – July 12, 2016) – Animal Jam is hugely popular MMO for kids. In the game, kids make avatars of various worlds and explore virtual worlds, play games, and build dens all while learning about animals in between. Now the game is coming into the real world as part of a new toy line.
The first part of the toy line is called Adopt-a-Pet and was launched in June. The toys are little houses that include a pet figurine with two accessories and a code that can be used in the game. Like lots of other toys, these toys are “blind” toys, meaning you can’t tell what’s inside until you open it.
