Literacy Planet allows students to customise their learning experience and express themselves through their very own avatar. The shop is where students can purchase funky clothing and accessories using the virtual credits earned by completing learning exercises. Once bought, an item can be found in the Home area of the program where it can be applied to the avatar.
An element of excitement and anticipation is created with mystery items that are available in the Shop. The Mystery-o-meter indicates how many points are needed to unlock the next item.
