What It Is
World Of Cars Online is a new browser-based, virtual world inspired by the 2006 movie, Cars. Since it’s original theatrical and subsequent video releases, Cars has continued to be one of the hottest boys properties and will likely grow in popularity with the release of Cars 2 in 2011. World Of Cars Online is a destination site where kids get to socialize, play games and—of course—race cars!
Kids can sign up for a membership on their own but a parent’s email address will be required to complete the registration process. Once a parent has approved and set the child’s account parameters (more on this later), kids create their own car, which will be his or her in-world avatar, and then they are off to the town of Radiator Springs in Carburetor County! Carburetor County is an open world where players travel around, engage in races and mini-games and interact with the online world’s other players. All of the communication among members is done through an on-screen chat window where kids can type and insert emoticons. While driving around the world, players will also find a variety of different race tracks, mini-games and opportunities to interact with familiar characters from the movie.
