What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the privacy policy link is light gray against a sky blue background, so it's difficult to find. It should be clearly visible and accessible from the game gallery window as well as the home page, and it's not. Kids are asked for their names and addresses if they want to enter the coloring contest, and are asked for their email when they send an e-card to a friend. Kids should be reminded that when they send e-cards, they are giving up their friend's privacy too.

HORRIBLE

Chuck E. The Rat where a Kid can be a BRAT.
Kid, 10 years old March 29, 2014

Um...don't bother

Not that fun, chucky might be scary to younger kids. The games are really lame, this place is like dumping your money in the drain.

What's it about?

Parents may be interested in downloading coupons for special deals on meals or game tokens. Kids will want to head directly to the Game Gallery. At the time of review, it featured a summery beach theme. In \"Crab Grab,\" you try to net as many crabs as you can within the allowed time period. In \"Skateboard,\" players help Chuck maneuver his skateboard through an obstacle course. Other games include a tic-tac-toe challenge, a memory match, and an interactive guitarist feature. There's also a \"good grades\" calculator; restaurants give game tokens as rewards for great report cards. The funniest part of the site is in the \"Movies\" section. There, you will be entertained by music videos featuring (among others) a Britney Spears sound-alike dressed up like a chicken, singing the pop hit \"Crazy,\" with a spin on the lyrics. Additionally, users can rate Chuck E. Cheese TV commercials.

Is it any good?

The games are fun for youngsters, but it's impossible to ignore the many Chuck E. Cheese promos. Note that if you have pop-up blocking software installed, you can (and will probably have to) click on a special link on the home page to go to the pop-up–free version of the site.
