This was a great website to teach kids about advertising tricks. It was flash based, so it seems to be gone.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

This super-smart site does a great job debunking the tricks of the advertising trade with a "show, don't tell" approach. Rather than just reading about concepts, users can test their skills spotting sneaky ads or trying to distinguish designer duds from thrifty alternatives. The information is simple enough for tweens to digest, but teens and adults will probably learn a few things, too. A colorful, clean design complements the content perfectly.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
