A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Positive Messages

Typical Warner Bros., old-style cartoon antics, such as Fred Flintstone's attempts to get out of work, are about the worst social messages kids will find here.

Violence & Scariness

DC Super Friends cartoons and game section may be too intense for some preschoolers. Batman, Green Lantern, Superman, and other hero characters try to save people from Lex Luthor's fires, crashes, and obstacles. Also, while Scooby-Doo isn't violent, some preschoolers may find suspenseful ghost storylines scary.

Sexy Stuff
Language

Kids have to know how to read the basic game instructions, but some of the categories use voiceover when you scroll over them.

Consumerism

This site is set up to promote WB cartoon characters and their shows.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What's it about?

There are enough fun cartoons, games, and activities at KIDSWBJR.COM to warrant a couple of visits from preschool fans of Scooby-Doo, The Flintstones, or Baby Loony Toons. The cartoons are standard WB fare, meaning most are predictable classic cartoon story lines, like Scooby-Doo's "find the real villain" plot. If you know your kid's scare limit for ghost spottings and cartoon villains, there's nothing here that's inappropriate for most preschoolers. These three shows are the only ones currently available to watch, but the DC Super Friends are also featured in games and activities.

Is it any good?

It's too bad that this site doesn't come close to measuring up to the educational standards or entertainment value that most parents and their computer savvy preschoolers expect from a site they'll want to visit often. Many of the games are one-hit wonders, and some of the slower ones can become frustrating to preschoolers with short attention spans. But, some of the games and activities may be fun for preschoolers to play around with a time or two after they watch a related cartoon.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about setting limits for online game play, especially ones of questionable quality. Some games on this site are set up in a rather clunky format that could frustrate the attention span of many preschoolers. Would it be easier and just as fun (or even more fun) to play a board game, card game, or something outside?
