What's it about?

"Mini Mini Golf" involves hitting a pea-sized virtual ball around a desktop filled with Ritz cracker traps, spinning mini Oreos, and other hazards such as a randomly operating stapler. There are jigsaw puzzles (Fig Newtons), Tic-Tac-Toe (Cheese Nips), and slider puzzles (Chips Ahoy). There are also multiplayer games. Just type your initials and wait a few seconds. Soon you may be playing chess, hearts, reversi, or another game with another snack food fanatic. You can send messages to each other from a list of common canned phrases. Other parts of the site offer sweepstakes, contests, and polls.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

One of the best offerings is the Honey Maid Reading Circle, featuring six interactive books, such as "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" and "Jack and the Beanstalk." Each page has clever animations that trigger when you mouse over the words in the text. It's something little kids will love to see over and over.

The Video Safaris are fun, too. In the Marine version, you play the role of a videographer who needs to gather footage of six sea creatures before your film runs out. You must explore the undersea world and find all of them. You can then view your movie and submit your score. While watching your film, click on the animals to learn more about them.
