Two or three parents have asked me about a game that some of our children are playing on the internet; Roblox.
Please see below for some information from Herts for Learning’s autumn term esafety newsletter for parents.
Roblox – keeping children safe whilst gaming
What is Roblox?
Childnet describes it as: “a gaming website where multiple players interact and play together in online games. The site has a collection of games aimed at 8-18 year olds; however, players of all ages can use the site and play games together. Roblox can currently be played on the PC, phone, tablet and Xbox One.
There are a wide variety of games to choose from; from delivering pizzas, to roaming a kingdom as a medieval knight, to even starring in a fashion show, the variety of games is one of the reasons that Roblox is so popular with many young people.”
Childnet goes on to highlight the three key things for parents to be aware of:
• the chat communication feature of the game
• the content of the game could be inappropriate for young children
• the risk children could accidentally run up costs whilst playing the game
