    I set up a PocketMine server for my sons and a few of their friends to play together without opening them up to public servers, as I'm not sure they're old enough for that just yet. I don't actually play the game, so I have no clue if the PM server comes with everything needed/fun via the default installation. For example, he mentioned that he couldn't find sheep anywhere - does this mean that I need to hit a setting to populate their world, or has he just not found them yet.

    Any suggestions or advice on plugins that are fun to have on your server that I should include?

    Well in Pocketmine, any type of animal or monster does not spawn. That is because there AI are not implemented yet. You can look through the Plugin repository to find fun plugins that they might enjoy.

    There are also many other things that can't be done in PocketMine.

    You can grow plants. I do not know about cocoa beans though.
    The current development release of pocketmine you cannot craft torches doors or stone blocks. I don't use the stable builds so I cannot speak for them.
    There are many plugins that make the world more entertaining to play in. Most of them only require downloading a small file(phar) and placing it in the plugins folder where the pocketmine program is located(if you are running pocketmine on your computer). If you are running on a host site, it depends where it is and what they offer, but most should allow plugins and have easy setup.

    basic suggestions:
    simpleAuth(not required for a private server really but will stop friends from logging on each others names to cause trouble)
    essentialsTP(I actually dont use it on my survival server because it allows more then I like, players like it)
    GoldStd(a simple economy plugin, basic setup works fine but a lot can be done with this)
    GrabBag(I use as a complement to GoldStd, more involved processes)
    ServerKits(basic setup works fine but I like to make my own kits)
    FoodEffects(takes some setup to make good)
    PeacefulSpawn(kids will be kids)

    and maybe:
    Sneak(just allows player to crouch and sneak, basic i like it)
    NoVoid(so when they dig to the bottom of the world they don't loose their stuff)

    They have mini games and all kinds of things I don't use and don't know about.

    I have included my food effect file. to use it.. put the food effect phar in your plugin folder, then put this zip in somewhere(I would say your plugin folder) and unzip the file to your plugin folder. It isn't perfect but it shouldn't crash your server and covers most of the food.

    If you want your kids to play in a normal mcpe world, you can port foward and join a single mcpe world. Then your kids just needed to join the mcpe world with the ip address givin in whatismyip.com and the port that you port fowarded

    Or you could use a host for example NetherBox and pay a few pounds (or whatever currency your country uses) to get a server hosted. It's pretty good and a simple setup. If you ever get stuck or need more help don't be afraid to ask here. We are always up to help :)

    He is saying that he wants a normal MCPE world that works and Netherbox would be a PocketMine server.

    OR instead of buying overpriced hosts that sell their services at a ridiculous price you can get a VPS!
