Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (29 ):

There's no doubt that FUNBRAIN.COM offers a lot of fun, interactive learning games for kids in grades K-8, plus tools for parents and teachers. Kids can search by grade level or topic. Kids can also read web book versions of popular books, such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and comics on the site. The downside is that the site is advertising its paid virtual world version, called Poptropica, far too much. And some games are more arcade-style (like bopping penguins on the head) than might be expected on an educational site.

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.
