Hi Lauren, 
Crazy talk is a different twist on avatars with lip sync. It's really fun. You get a few free characters on SKYPE as an add-in.
All the best,

  Subject: avatar question

  Is anyone using an avatar creator with their students that:  is free, doesn't require email, and is appropriate?  We'd like our kids to have an avatar for uses like VoiceThreads and wikis.  Thanks.
