  • The World of Miamiopia is where balloons go when they escape from the hands of a human. Once here, these balloons seek to improve themselves by learning as much as they can about the world around them. Each building in Miamiopia is filled with learning games. Some of these games teach the little Miamiopians about math, others about dinosaurs, biology, animals, music, physical science, history, and many other topics. Miamiopians "learn to earn." Each time they plan a learning game, they earn coins. These coins can be used to buy things in the shopping district.
