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. Families who visit this site will play some very simple games both on and off the computer. The games involve characters seen on the Nick Jr. TV shows. Because this site is in the kids.us domain, there are no outbound links.

What's it about?

This bright and cheerful companion site to the NickJr. TVshows is divided into three parts: There are games to play, stories to read, and printables to make and do. The games feature NickJr. characters like Dora the Explorer and Blue (of Blue's Clues). Kids can help Dora retrieve all her party goods for the big pirate party, play Hide 'n' Seek with rabbit siblings Max and Ruby, or dance along to Lazy Town's "Get Up and Move" game. In the printables section, you'll find Blue's favorite recipe: Banana Pops. There are also directions on making and playing with a soccer ball obstacle course.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

Nick does a solid job helping kids learn with -- and through -- its loveable TV characters, and even novice computer users will be able to roam around and discover something on NickJr.Kids.US with ease. The best part? Kids are encouraged to print out some fun activities to conquer away from the computer screen.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about setting computer time limits. How can you create a balance between life in front of a computer and life logged off? How can you take what you're learning online to the "real" world?

Just a note...

Kids will like the activities, but there are lots of ads.

Too many ads.

The entire bottom half of the screen is ads -- often with music and animation, leading kids to think it's a game they're clicking on and not a ad.
