Kids are kids – and that’s fun

Can you find the smiley that’s different from the others? This is a really tough one!

Our daily delight is to look at all the cool things kids are doing on Momio. Momio is a social media where kids can post things that they’re interested in. No grown-ups are allowed, so Momio is like a playground, and that’s fun to follow. The kids come up with many, many activities. Here are some of them.

Fun content on Momio

“Hey, I’m making a family with a mom, a little sister, a little brother and a big sister. I’m the dad. We can do what a family does, and argue a bit. The parents have to be strict! Sign up before 3 o’clock!” 

This is how roleplays start. Someone sets the scene and others join in. Roleplays can be almost about everything: Kids can play family or school or follow the plot of a movie. We’re often truly impressed by the dedication they show to their roles – they really know their characters!

Playing with smileys
The kids love smileys! Sometimes throwing a couple of them in after a sentence is simply not enough, so they build amazing patterns with them. You can see some in the picture. Other type of smiley content is find the error, the one you already tried. There’s lots of the same letter or smiley – but one is different, and you’re supposed to find it as soon as possible. It requires lots of concentration!

Miss Momio
Four volunteers dress up in their best outfit and the others can vote who wins. Sometimes there’s a theme, sometimes not. We’ve of course seen Mister Momio competitions too.

Write without interruptions
The idea is to write a specific word letter by letter in comment fields. The one who writes it without being interrupted gets a price. This is surprisingly difficult! Here’s an example:


Also good old fashioned competitions are still popular. Especially drawing competitions are fun to look at. The one hosting the competition gives a theme and chooses the winner.

Still haven’t found the different smiley in the first picture? Hint: Look at the eyebrows.
