6 Fun and FREE Avatar Creators for the iPad!

In preparations for my session at iPadpalooza next week, “Gamifying the iClassroom,” I have been researching avatar creators for the iPad. There are so many to choose from! Of course, some are purely creators, and some games allow you to create an avatar within the app. For the purposes of this post, these are purely avatar creators.

I couldn’t fit all of my new avatars in the image to the left, but you can see I had a little bit of fun and so will you!

See below for links to the App Store and more information about all 6 Avatar Creators!
