Online Education with the All Star Buddies


You can make summer a fun, educational time for your kids. Prevent summer learning loss with “stealth” educational activities.

If your kids enjoy playing video games and being online, introduce them to the All Star Buddies. Moms Caryn Burns and Cindy Prince started in order to close the gap between websites that were created for entertainment and those developed for education.

They wanted to seamlessly weave learning into the fun their kids were having online, so they created “Varsity Heights”- a safe, virtual playground for kids ages 6+. Varsity Heights has a sports theme, which appeals to kids and parents. While playing “sports,” your child will practice math, language and science skills.

Parents will like how lessons about problem solving, goal setting, teamwork, good sportsmanship, fitness and nutrition are incorporated into the games. And kids enjoy playing games related to their favorite sports- football, basketball, soccer, golf, tennis, hockey and baseball.

You can try the online games for free, or buy an All Star Buddies plush toy. Each toy comes with a secret code that allows your child to earn unlimited coins and to receive bonus coins, which can be used to purchase virtual items for your child’s buddy.

Buy online for $19.99 at (I also found some of the plush All Star Buddies on sale for $9.99 at Amazon.)
