As many of you may have heard from my furry friend on Facebook, our Universe has grown, changed and improved with the help of many dedicated alienes with the power to change our world with their magical clicker (odd little thing, it is). We cleaned up around the Big Blue Space Station and even got some help from locals to make sure we catch every bit of pollution lingering behind the corners. After using some intense magnets and learning how to communicate with Flockers, we are excited to share with you a Tiny Planets Universe that is ALL about your child. Take a look!
Your child now have the ability to make anything and everything his/her own. They will be able to customize their own planet, space station and even their own furry alien (our personal favorite). On their planet, they can design everything from the roads to the scenery to the buildings. With their space station, they will be able to transform their space vehicle into their very own customized space rider. Funky chairs? Carpets? Shops? Wall decor? Why not a bit of everything! Set free your child’s creativity. Let your child explore the Universe through the lens of…a pirate, an explorer, an astronaut, a viking, a knight…and much more by customizing his/her furry alien!
It’s all about your child in your universe and ours – click here to get your child started on their space mission!
Hi all, Aurora here! I have been busy visiting one nebula after another. Many are right in YOUR neighborhood. Check out these pictures I took of the Eagle Nebula just for YOU!
This picture of the Eagle Nebula was taken by a backyard telescope. Can you see the eagle? Try tracing it out with your fingers.
Okay, so this picture was taken by yours truly using the Hubble telescope. Can you see the eagle better? What color does it appear? Reddish-orange, right? So what does that mean the Eagle Nebula is made up of? Hydrogen! What other gases do you see? Not sure if I told you this yet, but the green usually means there is oxygen. Green can also be another gas, but for now it’s oxygen.
Now, put your finger on the tallest pillar.
Finally, let’s look at the Eagle Nebula close-up! We can see a lot of details. Look at the tip! Did you know each tip holds onto a star? It’s like a star’s home! Totally cool, huh?
I have pictures from a lot of other fascinating nebulae, but you will have to wait till our next journey together for those. Until then, keep exploring and discovering!
Hey all you parents of Space Cadets, did you know that you can get into the action at Tiny Planets by setting up your own Parent Account? Your Parent Account gives you control over your children’s ability to purchase KEYS for the MTP game. These keys are used to purchase planets, landscapes, cool rockets and more.
In addition to game purchases for their Space Cadets, parents can use KEYS to purchase video episodes, books and preschool games. Most can be unlocked for 10 KEYs each and in some cases 5 KEYs. All that you need to do is set up your Parent Account and the Tiny Planet Universe is your new playground.
Setting Up Your Parent Account
First, set up a cadet account by clicking on “Create a Cadet” at the top right of your screen.
Then, set up a parent account, and associate it with the cadet account.
(Parent accounts are separate from cadet account to prevent players from reloading currency themselves.)
After creating a parent account, you can purchase “KEYs” which unlock special Tiny Planets content.
KEYs are sold in bundles that are economically priced for families. For example, you can get 85 KEYs for $9.95 (US$) which comes out to about 12 cents per KEY. There are bundles of lower (10 KEYS for $1.95) and higher amounts of KEYs. The more KEYs you buy in a bundle, the cheaper the per-KEY price. There are no monthly subscriptions to sign up. Payments can be made using your credit card or Paypal. Buy as little or as much as you’d like — no strings attached.
Now how cool is that?! Visit www.tinyplanets.com today and get into the action!
Okay cadets listen up. I’ve been reviewing some the passports and I’m surprised that more of you haven’t achieved the rank of Spacer yet. It might just be that you haven’t gotten the hang of your space crafts yet, so I’m going to give you a couple of pointers to help you out.
In order to become a Spacer you need to visit five planets that you do not own. I mean, it only makes sense that you can find your way back and forth to your own home, right? So what we’re looking for are the intrepid folks who jump in their ships and hop over to the far reaches of space just to say have a spot of tea. Continue reading →
