What parents need to know

Parents need to know that there's a store on the site, but otherwise the marketing messages are fairly light. In "The Mooving Tale," a cute sequencing game, the cows "bribe" a stage manager to let them sing for an audience. The bribe consists of Cow Tales candy, of course.

What's it about?

Among the games on this site is \"Nine Moos\" is a tricky little challenge that doesn't seem hard at first. Before you sit nine cows, arranged in a grid. Some are deep in snoring slumber, while others are wide awake and grazing. Your job is to click on the grazing cows to make them sleep, too. Unfortunately, this often wakes adjacent cows. If you keep clicking, you'll discover a pattern! \"Pass the Cows\" features two cow \"dice.\" You play against the computer, trying to be the first to rack up 100 points. Roll the virtual cows, noting how they land. Each position is worth a certain number of points. You can keep rolling and accumulating points.

As commercial sites go, this one offers little in the way of marketing messages and much to admire in the category of fun. The easiest games aren't really games at all, but printables, including a maze, a word search, and several pairs of "what's different?" pictures.

Talk to your kids about ...

Would you expect to find information about good healthy on a candy company Web site? If you found it, would you trust it? Why or why not?
