Light learning fun with Playhouse Disney replacement.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Kids' favorite characters from Disney shows teach basic educational skills like math, puzzles, Spanish, and healthy eating. Coloring pages to print and other arts and crafts ideas take some of the fun offline.
Products & Purchases
A few sponsorship ads (Beech-Nut baby food, for example). Ads for Disney media brands and shows can be seen throughout the site.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that preschool crowd-pleasing Disney Junior is the newest site in the Disney.go.com network; both the site and Disney Junior TV are Playhouse Disney replacements. The site features basic educational games, videos (including some full-length shows), and printables of favorite Disney characters both new and classic, including Handy Manny, Special Agent Oso, Buzz Lightyear, and the cadre of Disney Princesses.

Is It Any Good?
Disney Junior is likely to be a winner with the youngest computer users who are Disney fans. Voice-over instructions ensure that kids don't need to be reading yet to enjoy the games and videos here. The printable coloring pages, crafts, and fun tips for parent-led activities are good ways to get younger kids off the computer and back to playing in the offline world.
Online interaction: The Disney Junior site doesn't allow users to interact in any way.

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.
