Acting as a virtual playing ground, Roblox connects children and lets them have the activities they used to have offline before the lockdown. In springtime of 2020, Robby Scianna planned to celebrate his 10th birthday with some of his friends in an escape room. Unluckily, his school got shut, as well as the whole hometown of Campbell in California’s outskirts due to coronavirus spread. Robby decided to have a virtual birthday party in Roblox instead. Invited friends sang “Happy Birthday” song together for Robby. Then, they jumped into Roblox for an hour to play Minigames with competition, equivalent to the ones played on real children birthday parties. Fun spirit and much laughter can be ensured. “Having a real birthday party would be better, but the virtual one was still pretty fun,” Robby said. Building classes on Roblox can teach creating a nice-looking layout and using state-of-the-art tools for such an online party.
