Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although kids younger than 4 can probably use this site with some simple pointing and clicking, we don't recommend having kids online who are that young. The good news is that there's no advertising on the site to confuse young kids. Instead, kids get treated to simple games and fun information about favorite characters.
What's it about?
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation offers this site for preschoolers. Enter the \"Let's Play\" section and visit the toy room. Strewn about the floor are items that animate when clicked, such as a jack-in-the-box or a dump truck. The room has lots of magic, too, such as a window shade that changes the seasons outside each time it's pulled down. Sometimes when you visit the site, the toys are different, or they've been moved around the room. In the Games drawer, you'll find fun activities such as an online coloring book; a driving game in which players steer their lunar vehicles around obstacles to gather little stalk-eyed creatures, moon melons, or crystals; a cute dot-to-dot drawing and dress-up game; and \"Sticker Park Explorer,\" a combination art and science experience.
Is it any good?
This is a terrific site offering youngsters simple games and fun information about favorite characters. Better yet, there's no advertising.
