• Welcome Parents

    Club Penguin is an ever-changing world where the possibilities to create, socialize, and play are literally endless (not literally, that'd be tough). 

    As a parent, you're probably scheduling a meeting, practicing yoga, and trying to hide vegetables in spaghetti sauce while reading this. We'll give you the need-to-knows on this page, so let's get started.

  • Learning and Development

    We've created games that expose your child to concepts in problem solving, teamwork, critical thinking, and EVEN math. (Hopefully they won't notice). 

    • Motor Skills
      Our games give your child the chance to practice their hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and the ancient art of typing.
    • Creativity
      Kids can get creative in many different ways - from designing outfits to decorating their own igloos - without getting glue on your sofa.
    • Teamwork
      We like it when kids work together, that's why we create tricky mazes, hide dinosaur eggs, and give them mysteries to solve together.
    • Money Management
      Money doesn't grow on trees. By playing games to earn coins, kids can learn to save up for what they want the most.
    • Global Awareness
      Through our Coins For Change campaign, players can learn how good it feels to give back. And they always blow our minds with their generosity.
    • Socialization
      Snowball battles and fashion shows are more fun with friends. So we make sure there are lots of ways for your kid to make new friends with other penguins.
    • Responsibility
      We help your kid feel grown-up without the stress. You'd be surprised how many of them take up jobs in the Pizza Parlor, or ask us for ironing boards for their igloos.
  • What We Believe In
    We think kids are pretty awesome. And we believe that every child should have a safe place to play. So everything we do stems from our values and commitment to safe and fun online play.
    • Friendship & Community
      We understand that a sense of belonging is important to kids. So we make sure players from around the world can chat, make new friends, and create their own social groups.
    • Creativity & Imagination
      Players amaze us with creative fashion, igloos and unique role-play. We listen to their ideas and react, giving them the tools to help spark their imaginations and express their creativity.
    • Exploration & Discovery
      We know that kids love to discover and explore new things. We want to give our players the opportunity to find hidden secrets around the island, and take on amazing new adventures.
  • History of Club Penguin

    The ideas behind Club Penguin go back to 2000. But the real story began in 2005, when the three founders of Club Penguin started work on a virtual world. Their goal was to create a safe place where their own children and grandchildren could play, connect and have fun online. That mission will never change.  

    After months of building, researching and testing, Club Penguin opened to the public in October 2005. Thanks to great reviews from players and parents, word quickly spread.  

    In August 2007 Club Penguin joined the Walt Disney Company, which shares its commitment to family fun and safety. This partnership allowed Club Penguin to expand, and reach more players than ever before with the help of a little Disney magic. Less than a year later, Club Penguin opened its first international office in Brighton, England, to provide international player support.  

    At Club Penguin we believe everyone deserves a place to live, good health, an education, and hope for a brighter future. We also believe it's fun to be a penguin! We're passionate about community, and we work hard to foster a culture of giving, both in the virtual world of Club Penguin and within our company.

  • Safety

    We're going to get serious for a moment, because we know safety is important. From live moderators and filtered chat, to an ad-free play environment and special parent tools, we strive to be the safest place on the internet. Here are some online safety tips to share with your child:

    1. Never give out personal information online. Your real name, age, where you live, phone number or school.
    2. Never share your password with anyone, except your parents. Someone else might use your password and pretend to be you.
    3. If someone does or says anything online to make you feel uncomfortable, tell your parent or guardian right away.
    4. Choose a nickname that doesn't give away your real name, or location.
