Hi Buddy!

EcoBuddies has been in open beta since September and has always been free to play. This week (January 21st) we will be turning on our payment system. As a thank you for helping us testEcoBuddies, anyone who has created an account before January 15th will get a free 60 day membership! If you like EcoBuddies and would like to support us by purchasing memberships, a one month membership is $6.25 USD, a six month membership is $28.75 USD, and a full year membership is $56.75 USD (this is the best deal). Memberships can be purchased on by clicking the "Become A Member" button on the home page.

What is the benefit of buying a membership?

EcoBuddies members get the following perks:

  • The ability to personalize their hamster avatar with a huge assortment of costumes.
  • The ability to buy a house and make it their own with cool furniture and accessories.
  • Early access to new games.
  • Full access to all new worlds and content as EcoBuddies expands.
  • Full access to special member events.
  • Will soon have the ability to buy their very own virtual pet and take care of it.

Why does EcoBuddies charge a monthly fee?
EcoBuddies is a safe and fully moderated site that is advertisement free! We decided to go with a monthly membership model because a lot of parents don't want their children subjected to advertising. The monthly fee allowsEcoBuddies to be fully moderated by live moderators, allowing us to make EcoBuddies as safe as possible. The monthly membership fee also allows us to continue adding great content to the EcoBuddies world, making the child's experience dynamic and exciting.

Can my child still play EcoBuddies for free?
You bet! EcoBuddies is free to play for anyone. Here are some of the features offered for non-members:

  • Non-members can play our amazing mini games.
  • Non-members can chat with friends using either "normal chat" or "safe chat" modes.
  • Non-members will soon have their own free items.
  • Non-members will be able to attend most special events and parties.
  • Non-members can still enter and participate in any contests.
  • Non-members will have full access to all eco-inspired and educational content.

This past year has been amazing and we have had a great time working on EcoBuddies! The best part has been watching the EcoBuddies community take shape. We are looking forward to an amazing 2009 and have some very exciting things in store.
