Ohana means family in Hawaiian. I learned that from Lilo & Stitch. lol. I think it’s a great word.
Ohanarama is an online gaming website for kids ages 5-12. What makes it unique, is that it is designed for kids to safely compete against their family and friends who live anywhere in the world!
A neat feature is that you canVideo Chat while you are playing. I’m sitting downstairs on my laptop and when I logged in under my account it informed me that C’Man was online upstairs in his room so we could chat. Now, imagine him hooking up with his grandma who lives half way across the country and is able to play a game of checkers with her at the same time. Cool? Or she can take her turn in an hour, or day later, then C’Man can take his again when he logs back on. A forever game of checkers!
Adults can easily sign up/log in with their Facebook account. The children they play with will NEVER be in Facebook though, they will stay on the Ohanarama site. Definitely cool!
As my boys play Ohanarama games, they earn tokens and Neuros to use to send gifts to family members or redeem for real world prizes in the Reward Gallery. These rewards include iTunes, Toys R Us, B&N, board games, and more! I bet you can guess which of those items my kids are after. Toys, toys, toys is what their brain is constantly on.
Earlier I caught them challenging each other for the top score. They can also send a note to their grandma in Iowa, asking her to try and beat that score. O’Bear loves Max Damage and C’Man’s favorite so far is Snail Bob 2. Me? I like Zingo!
Zingo is a game where you match the words and pictures as fast as you can. It’s Bingo with a Zing! This was one of the first kid board games we owned and we have played it many many times over the years. I was excited to see an online version that is just like playing it in real life. It’s really fun!
Also, I like that I can log into MY account and see THEIR account – what games have been played, etc.
One more important fact I want to share about the website ~ and that is that it is FREE! 🙂
