Is IMVU a do it yourself adult Disney world?

adult disney imvu minnie mouse My youngest just turned 5 and we went to Disney World for a week. It was her first time and she and all the kids has a blast. I did too, but I couldn’t help but think of IMVU a little as there are several parallels. (Do I see them everywhere? Maybe I guess) First of all it’s built on imagination and entertainment.

I guess its probably not a coincidence that I have a Tinker bell costume, a Minnie mouse, and a Cinderella plus some similar things like Alice in Wonderland and Little Red Riding Hood. But imvu let’s you live out any fantasy. And what better fantasies than our favorite cartoons.

Every time the shows at Disney talked about Imagination I couldn’t help but think about IMVU too. What would Disney have done if he started with this? Imvu allows anyone to be creative much more easily and to copy and play with costumes and sets at will. As the technology continues to grow I think it will be seen more and more as a vehicle for people to be and do anything they want.

It cost thousands of dollars to take the kids to Disney. So you can only go once or twice but you can go to imvu every day. It costs less than a trip to McDonalds to get started but it can be so much fun, not to mention a little addicting.

    I totally agree with you…less then a Trip to McDonald’s , but the Virtual World should be the Second step or Choice. Specially Young Folks have to make experiences in Real World . If Things are more Rough and Real thats ok . I would let my Kids Start with imvu only if i had Control on who they Chat with and what they do. You know there are crazy perverted guys Out there…and they are able to Crack in a Kids mind. Never leave them just on thier own infront of Computers , could be dangerous.

  2. I agree. I don’t want my 15 year old anywhere near this. It is better to bring your real life experience into here and NOT using this to form your direction in life. That’ll be a hard thing to enforce and control but it’s clearly what’s best.

    There are definitely a lot of crazy and perverted people using this. I’m not sure if it’s a magnet for them or it just encourages people to be however they really want to be. I guess it’s probably both. So it can be great but you’re right it can also be horrible and very damaging, especially for young people. Point well taken Maya. I don’t mean to gloss over that and focus only on the fun side.
