Calling all International Rescue fans. Do you want to learn how to decode and set yourself a mission a week with Thunderbirds to earn badges? Simply log onto www.thunderbirds.com and create your own username.
Each child can play for 7 days without activation. If you would like your child to continue to explore and play games, you have to click on the activate email. Also parents/guardians can create an account to monitor their activity on the site and join in the fun.
Mr K has called himself the SonicJetpack19 while Ms C called herself SupersonicArmour58. Once you have registered and got your certificate, it’s time to start working towards getting your badges!
Now, follow the instructions on the site for each mission. Each time you complete a mission, you will receive a virtual IR badge.
Mr K finds it easy to navigate the site and do the missions but not Ms C. Ms C (6 year old) finds it hard and was not able to fully understand the mission. So far, Mr K was able to complete week 2 mission. Each mission does take some time to decode it. He really enjoys learning the Code Key. We have also downloaded the free app on his iPad for the Code Key.
Currently, there are 10 missions to work through. Mr K will have plenty of time to do each mission. He does find that some challenges are easy and some are hard. When he finds a hard one, he tends to stop and do other easier ones before coming back to do the hard one.
He is looking forward to going back to the website to continue taking the new challenges. We find that using a laptop is much easier than using the Safari browser on the iPad and Internet Explorer on tablet. So he only gets 30 minutes each time to do a mission as mummy needs her laptop for work.
