DoppleMe: Create Free Avatars

DoppleMe allows you to create a head-to-toe avatar and customise it as you please. There are limited options for those who do not register, but enough to create a decent figure. For those who do register (for free), you can save and edit your avatar and get access to a wider range of features.

I recently used this site for my learners to create personalised avatars for interactions with other schools. For those who have concerns about learners putting their faces on the Internet, this is a safe option.
Another use that comes to mind is creating characters for storytelling. Using Michael Gorman's lesson plan for the 'one take video' I could see how these avatars could be exploited to create characters.
