[Newbies] Can I implement it with squeak?

I have a project similar to Stefanie's. I tried Etoys that is very simple to
use and funny, but as far as I know it doesn't have 3D features.

I think Croquet and Cobalt are still difficult to use if you are not a
I've tried Plopp as well, but you can only draw with it, I think.

I've found and tried to use Alice-Wonderland that has bugs but I think it's
very nice and easy to use. I couldn't find it in the 3.9 version, though.
Has the project been abandoned? Or is there a library I can download for
squeak 3.9? Where can I find it?

Can someone tell me how can I create 3D characters and make them animate
using squeak?
Thanks a lot
