Posted Aug 12, 2009

Masher Media has announced a multi-player children’s game called MyMiniPeeps.  MyMiniPeeps is a virtual world that was intended for kids that are between the ages of 6-13.  Masher Media recently has raised $300,000 in funding from Tech Coast Angels.  MyMiniPeeps will be launching in Fall 2010.  The company plans to raise revenue by launching a toy line.

This will enable kids to interact online and offline with the virtual world.  Virtual goods will also be sold on MyMiniPeeps.  Subscriptions will cost $5.95 per month with discounts on 6 month and 12 months increments.

Masher Media was started by Sherry Gunther.  She previously founded kids website Zookazoo.  She is also a producer for shows such as The Simpsons, Rugrats, Family Guy, Looney Tunes, and Power Puff Girls.
