What is Oville World?
Oville World is an online fantasy world where children age two to five are welcome to play, create and learn as they explore the ever-growing world. Oville is a safe virtual world for young learners to engage their curiosity and is the future of online learning for children.
Oville is fun!
By offering a safe and non-violent site for children to explore, Oville World will delight your child, inspire creativity, and build reading, math and developmental skills.
Is Oville safe?
Protecting children is the cornerstone of our business. We guarantee that your child has NO access to the web. More importantly, no one on the web has access to your child.
As fellow parents and grandparents, our commitment to safety also extends to the content we share with your child. We have a strict policy of no advertising, no sexuality, no violence, and no discrimination. In short, no inappropriate content of any kind!
Our values drive everything we do here at Oville. Our aim is to provide your child with a safe, morally sound place to play online. The multi-ethnic population of Oville promotes acceptance and respect.
What does Oville World provide to children?
Oville provides a growing world full of imaginative learning opportunities – read-along books; spatial reasoning, memory, speed, and counting games; multiple genres of music; exercise; their very own customizable and unique Cackpal friend; as well as their very own House in the Town Round!
We have incorporated innocent childhood fantasies into our living cartoons. From Blanche Mange’s Castle to the Aerocack Academy – every home will be a discovery unto itself.
How does my child play?
Intuitively, however the game begins with a tutorial that is included in the creation of their avatar, a Cackpal, and their custom home. Your child guides the Cackpal down the pathways to visit the various houses. There are clickables, collectibles and games along the way. To enter a house the Cackpal presents at the front door. Each house incudes books, music, games, colouring and other activities.
When can my child start playing?
Oville has been designed for children 2-5. Given that children as young as 2 years old are now on tablets and mobile phones everywhere, we felt it was important to offer a better alternative to other digital games. Our position is that technology is here to stay and giving your child the head start in understanding the use of computers is now a necessary early child development skill. . Making sure your child is exposed to safe and appropriate content is important to ensure their limited screen time is of the highest quality.
There are very few applications on the market that are comprehensive. Oville introduces children to physical, academic and emotional learning opportunities at an age appropriate level.
What makes Oville World better than other sites?
Oville really can’t be compared to any other site as there is nothing else like this. With years in the making, we have yet to find another digital learning site that meets our goals. Our safe, age-appropriate world is the best first access to the internet. In every way our children come first. We build specifically for them, not for advertisers.
I don’t want my child playing video games.
Nor did I!! The image of a child so fixated to their phone or tablet that they have no idea what is happening around them is heart-breaking. Oville isn’t just a game, although there are many educational and fun games designed specifically for our audience. Oville is a complete learning experience and we encourage offline activities. While visiting Oville World, Duke our big blue bird, will randomly show up and guide your child through a simple exercise routine. Nestor will lead them in dance and song and Mumbee will help them learn to be kind and acquire life skills. Snoggler has a great set of teeth and pushes everyone to learn to brush correctly. These reinforcing life-skill lessons come with our core commitment to introduce reading, counting and early preparation for pre-school. Don’t let your child play time wasting video games, give them so much more. Give them Oville World to explore.

How can I enhance my child’s experience in Oville World?
Although Oville World was created to be easily mastered by the youngest player, enjoying books, music and games with your child can only help develop their passion for learning. We created characters that every child can relate to. Barkley has a stuttering problem and our poor Quevo’s imagination leads him to not always tell the truth. Speckles is very kind and Sushee wants everyone to learn to read. Review the character profiles provided to all full-access members and identify the character that suits your child’s current needs.
Reading has always been a wonderful parent/child bonding experience. It hasn’t changed. You can sit with your child and read along with our karaoke books or mute them and read directly to your child. The bright illustrations and character recognition will make Oville Library a favourite destination.
There is so much to do and see, there is something for everyone; child alone or parents and children together. We won’t even mind if a grown-up wants to play for a while.
