While the role-playing aspect of this virtual world makes it a bit out of the scope of this site, it is worth noting as the first MMOG project created with children as young as age 7 in mind. This brightly colored cartoon environment offers kids (and their parents) the chance to play games, outfit their toon avatars, own a toon house, and battle the "Evil Cog Robots" trying to take over Toontown and turn it into a bland, black and white, skyscraper-filled, fun-deprived place.
