introduced Roblox to my son a couple of weeks back and I saw his interest only growing after that. After exploring for a few days, He taught the game to one of his friends so now they have been playing virtually together. 

What is Roblox?

Roblox is an online platform where you get to play games created by other developers. The games are mostly building games where you get to design your world or play in someone else’s. You can also add friends and message them.

What’s great about Roblox is that it’s not just a game, but a platform for kids to be creative. They can create their games and share them with the community. According to the official website, its users have published over 20 million games on the platform.

Is Roblox Free?

Yes, Roblox is free to play. You can sign up for a free account and start playing games right away. However, there are in-game purchases that you can make if you want to customize your avatar or buy virtual currency.

How does Roblox work?

In Roblox players get a virtual avatar. They can then use this avatar to play games, interact with other players, chat, and more. Avatars can be customized with a wide range of body parts, accessories, clothing, skin colors, animations, and more. Thus children get to express themselves the way they want.

Why are kids obsessing over Roblox?


Kids have freedom in the game to explore and create not just play. Kids can dress their avatars, and build and design houses. creative. 


The game is pretty easy to learn and get started with. There aren’t too many complicated rules to remember which makes it perfect for kids.


Another reason why kids are obsessing over Roblox is that they can make money from it. If you’re good at designing games, you can make some serious cash by selling game passes or Robux (the virtual currency in the game).

Some games on Roblox offer purchasable upgrades in the form of game passes that can be bought multiple times like in-app purchases. But you buy them with Robux, which must be bought with real-life money, I don't encourage this and Adi is aware of not spending real money.


In Roblox, kids can be whoever they want to be. They can dress up their avatar in any way they want and design their world. This is a great way for kids to express themselves and explore different identities.


Roblox is a great community for kids. They can add friends and message them. There is also a chat feature that allows kids to communicate with each other while they’re playing. The community is also very supportive and helpful.

Endless gaming possibilities:

There are over 20 million games on Roblox and counting. This means that there is always something new to play. Kids can explore different genres of games and find ones that they enjoy.

Who can make Roblox games?

The best part is anyone on Roblox can make games. This is what inspires young people to bring ideas to life. You don’t need any coding skills or experience to make a game. You can use the Roblox Studio to create your world and games.

What is this tell you about kids?

This tells us that kids are interested in games that offer them freedom, flexibility, and creativity. They also like games that are easy to learn and play, and that has a strong community element. Finally, kids enjoy games with endless possibilities for gaming and exploration.

Kids seek the independence and autonomy that these virtual platforms offer them. Generally, their lives are controlled by their parents. In a game, they can be anyone they want to be and do anything they want to do.

This is also a way for them to connect with other kids from around the world. They can play games together and chat with each other. This is a great way for them to socialize and make friends.

I have seen Adi exploring something new every day, he was talking about the UFO game the other day which I think he learned from one of the games. I'm so glad to see him so engrossed and enjoying something which is also teaching him new things.

Is Roblox safe for kids?

Roblox is a platform for all ages which means there are different types of games available for different age groups. Parents can keep a watch to ensure that their kids are only playing age-appropriate games. 

There is also a parental control feature that allows parents to monitor their child’s activity on the platform. They can see which games their child is playing, who they are chatting with, and more.

Roblox is a great platform for kids because it offers them freedom, flexibility, creativity, and community. It's also easy to learn and play, and there are endless possibilities for gaming and exploration.
