Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that some of the cartoons are a little dicey. Example: picture a Pop-Tart reading a book called "Tales From the Toaster." Drippy filling surrounds his little cartoon feet. Caption: "It scared the filling out of him!"
What's it about?
This is a companion site for those who love toaster treats and want to play games about them, wear clothes featuring them, and learn trivia such as what year Pop-Tarts were introduced (1962). Some of the games include \"The Great Pop-Tarts Chase,\" where you race to claim a hot Pop-Tart before your friend beats you to the toaster; and \"Yeti's Freezer Challenge,\" which requires players to catch falling frozen Pop-Tarts before they hit the ground and \"thaw.\" Other parts of the site feature current magazine ads, video from the TV commercials, and a store where you can buy a T-shirt with a talking lizard on it (batteries included).
Is it any good?
This is a food product site, fully baked and ready to eat but not a lot of fun to visit. The highlight is the scat-singing lizard, which offers a touch of whimsy in an otherwise ho-hum site. Also, some games are difficult and may be frustrating for younger kids (and even adults!).
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about the product that's being advertised and the overall value of the site. Do you think Pop-Tarts are a healthy food? Did you learn anything valuable from the site?
