Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's adopted children have found place in an that enables players to purchase orphans as fashion accessories. The game titled, 'My Minx' also allows young girls to give contraceptives and morning after pills to their online avatars.

Players can dress their virtual minxes in lingerie and other revealing clothes and can also adopt orphans named after the adopted children of celebrities, including Madonna, Angelina Jolie and Ewan McGregor.

The virtual children are also named after Jolie's kid's - Pax, Maddox and Zahara. They are of the same age and have same nationality as Jolie's.

The three year old, Maddox is said to be Cambodian and fond of eating cockroaches. The five year old, Vietnamese Pax is a fan of noodles, and four year old, Zahara from Ethiopia is a guinea pig eater.

The game developed by Blighty Arts also allows players to take their minxes binge to parties and clubs and try to seduce men. Minxes, who succeed in one night stands, have access to virtual condoms and morning after pills.

Gamers can design their own lingerie brands and handbag ranges as they play to create the most stylish minx. There is no age restriction on the game and players running out of virtual cash can top up their accounts by sending text messages costing 1.50 pounds each or use PayPal.

My Minx was unveiled shortly before Christmas and has already boasts of 20,000 members as young as seven. However, the game has come under fire from parents' groups.

Parents have condemned the game by saying that the children have enough exposure to the adult world and that they do not need any more such things. The concept of virtual condoms and morning pills would give them ideas of promiscuity.

Hibberd, a parent says, “this game encourages kids to think that they don't need to worry about morals or ethics. It is all just a bit of fun."

However, Blighty Arts Director, Christopher Evans said that the game is a pure entertainment. In his opinion it is wrong to protect a child from the real world for too long in this day and age.
