A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that there's not a lot of marketing on the site, but there is some product placement within the games. The product-themed games lack inspiration and are short on fun value. If you're looking for more on Arthur, try the PBS kids' site.
What's it about?
This site consists of a handful of games, including "Apple Harvest Catch," which involves moving your wagon to catch falling apples, and "Fruit Punch Coloring Fun," which offers an opportunity to practice eye-hand coordination as you select a product-themed picture to color, choose your paint, and click where you want the color to land. There's also a trivia quiz starring PBS' lovable Arthur character.
Is it any good?
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about different kinds of online advertising. If you're playing a game that's sponsored by a food brand or features its products, does that count as an ad? Why or why not? Families can also talk about what's a good amount of time for playing online games and can draw up some guidelines for balanced use.
