A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Categorizing learning games by age and topics helps kids get to know where their skills in different subjects are in relation to kids of other ages.
Products & Purchases
Quite a few ads, Google ads, and game ads that aren't clearly marked as ads, some of which route kids to other sites when clicked on. There's also a donation button to support the site with direct donations from users.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this educational game site for kids ages 4 to 12 categorizes games by age and subject matter -- math, ABCs, geography, creative play, and science. Created by a company in the Netherlands, some of the content doesn't match up with American spelling or educational development patterns. The creators say the site is particularly geared toward use in classrooms with interactive whiteboards, which can be followed up at home by kids who can play it with a mouse and keyboard, or touchscreen such as the iPad.
Is It Any Good?
CYBERKIDZGAMES needs a lot of work. The graphics are colorful, and some of the games and printables are both engaging and educational. But the numerous spelling errors (and outright change from English to Dutch mid-game, in some instances), are an unfortunate distraction. That, coupled with the mismatched level of difficultly in some games and age categories and the many ads that aren't clearly marked as such, makes the current version of this potentially promising site a likely frustrating experience for many kids.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
