The best part of the Planet 51 website is the avatar creator!! Select a male or female creator, then adjust the head body, and likes and dislikes of your character before downloading it as wallpaper for your computer! Get your own unique avatar! Very fun. But the website has more to offer than just an avatar…it also has a great games section! There are 7 different games available to play. Three of them are games that are available to play immediately online including Spot the Differences, Land Chuck’s Spaceship, and Target Practice….games that are fun enough to keep you occupied for quite a while! The other four games are available either on sega, nick.com, or shockwave.com. Besides the online games, there’s also an IPhone game called Hide And Seek which you can download to your IPhone for free from iTunes! The site developers have really focused on the mobile community with this site, which is one great thing…you’ll even find free mobile downloads available for your cell simply by texting keywords. More interested in learning about the movie Planet 51 itself? Click on the Characters link to pull up the biographies you can read – and listen to! – of each of the members including Rover, Glar, Lem, Skiff, Eckle, and Chuck! Before you leave the site, grab a Planet 51 download including a wallpaper or aim icon!
SMR Overall review: Great site with lots to do! Could have used an activity book, but even without it’s still fun. Can’t wait until the promotions link is up and working, at the time of our visit it still said “Coming Soon”.
