UPDATE: Comments on this post are closed and the giveaway is over. Thank you to all who entered, and congratulations to Sleepyheadedmom!
[The following post was commissioned by SweetyHigh.com]
My daughter is at that age where she wants to be so many things when she grows up: dancer, singer, fashion designer, doctor (OK, I threw that last one in, she really just wants to be a performer or a famous person of some kind). And since she is all of seven, she feels that time’s a wastin’ – tick tock, tick tock!
I am a little heartbroken that she’s still a few months too young for an innovative website called Sweety High, but the moment she turns eight I’m getting her an account. Sweety High is for girls ages eight to sixteen, and I guarantee my daughter will be all over this.
At its core, Sweety High is a social gaming site for tween and teen girls, where they have the opportunity to socialize, earn virtual currency, take quizzes, participate in discussions, and create content. But what sets it apart is its real world connections. The creators of the site have a massive amount of experience in the entertainment industry, so they are able to hook Sweety High up with singers, actors, athletes, basically the cream of the crop in a bunch of categories important to the site’s users.
So far, real life users of the site have gotten to dance with the stars of So You Think You Can Dance, be in a Cody Simpson video, attend a Make-A-Wish Foundation event hosted by Miley Cyrus, and many more. Many of these opportunities came from the site’s Be A Star program, where users can submit entries, which are voted on. The next Be A Star opportunity centers around fashion, with one talented designer getting to see her creations on sale at BeBop.com.
Sweety High produces a lot of original content, from interviews to web series to behind-the-scenes videos and documentaries – you can take a look on the Sweety High YouTube page. From “Food Star” to “Just Dance” to “Glam Squad” and many educational PSAs, the original content is engaging. And naturally, they have facebook and twitter accounts.
All of the actual site-moderated play and socializing, however, takes place on SweetyHigh.com. Sweety High is a COPPA-compliant site, using the latest technology to help ensure that private information is not being shared on the site and nothing is going on that would put children in danger. One of my favorite groups, Common Sense Media, gives it a four-star rating and says that the site is strong concerning privacy.
Joining Sweety High is free, although there are opportunities to access certain content through subscriptions.
Valentine’s Baking Set Giveaway
To help celebrate the launch of SweetyHigh.com, one of my readers will receive a deluxe Valentine’s baking set worth approximately $80, including everything you see here:
The heart-shaped confections that could be made and served with this set are almost endless, from heart cookies and mini-pies to heart jello treats. The set also includes a tablecloth, apron, oven mitts, towels, placemat, plates, and measuring cups.
To enter, please answer this question in the comments section of this post: When you were a tween or teen, what real-life experience would you have wished for the most? To sing with your favorite band? Guest-star on a TV show?
I think I would have chosen to be in a Broadway show, even if just for one night. And at that point in my melodramatic teenagerhood, I probably would’ve chosen Phantom of the Opera.
