Parent of a 5 and 7 year old Written bycasandra_j_k January 21, 2011

this is a good educational site but 5 is a little young.

I like this site. However i would say it is more for a 6 or 7 yr. old than a kindergardener. A few games my 5 yr. old can play but the majority were ones my old... Continue reading

What's it about?

Choose your level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced) and notice which games are suggested for you. Beginners will love alphabetizing bears so they can ride a roller coaster in Paw Park. In the intermediate section, \"Monkey Business\" is a terrific way to learn sentence structure. The player has to build bridges to get the monkey over various hazards, like a river of lava or a pool of electric eels. Each part of a sentence is written on a plank. Get the boards in order and the monkey can cross to get the bananas. Advanced players can try phonics with Frieda, the fearless surfer, or help out Squanky the bogus tooth fairy. The idea here is that the player matches pairs of opposite words (\"wet\" and \"dry,\" for example).

Is it any good?

As players advance through the games, with each correct answer, the characters' antics grow more entertaining. In "Monkey Business," for instance, the more fruit won, the more tricks the clever monkey does at the end of the game. It's addictive! And the right response from players nets Squanky the tooth fairy another tooth from a sleeping child. It turns out Squanky wants the teeth to replace his own unsavory choppers! It's hilarious watching what happens when he finally finds enough teeth to eat an apple.

While these games are educational AND fun, there are also "just for fun" games in the "Fun Goo" section of the site.
