"So if we can't have a real pet, can we have a virtual one?" We're a pretty itinerant family so it was kind of inevitable that our two have joined the weird & wonderful world of http://www.moshimonsters.com/ where, in case you've been living on the moon for the last year, you can adopt a pet monster, look after it, solve puzzles to earn 'money' (rox), buy it stuff and interact with lots of other moshi monsters. Apparently, one in three British children play it. It's all a bit beyond me, but sometimes as parents you've got to go with the flow. Maybe I'll adopt one too?
