A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Kids can learn problem-solving skills on this site dedicated to Shaun the Sheep. Games designed for older kids require users to tackle puzzles and think strategically; little kids can practice following directions with crafting activities like making pom-pom sheep or express themselves creatively through coloring pages. While Shaun the Sheep is designed to be more of a fan site than an educational one, it has enough engaging activities that kids can't help but learn a little along the way.

It's really good

My three year old brother could not watch it for long (too restless). It's really good because it is funny, exciting and had a good ending.

What's it about?

The creators of Wallace and Gromit present a new cast of creatures: Shaun the Sheep and his barnyard friends. Shaun's fan site has some content for little kids and some for older kids and adults. It includes short video clips, games, downloads, activities, contests, and forums. Users who register can create profiles, add online buddies, and send messages; they also can save their progress in games and earn badges for achievements.

Is it any good?

Games are a definite highlight of Shaun's site, and they're often rather challenging; fortunately, many provide "hint" options, and registered users can save their progress as they make their way through levels. The forums are moderated, keeping discussions friendly and clean. Although the site has more content for older fans than little kids, parents looking for fun activities for preschoolers will find a few in the "Goodies" section, like printable mazes and craft guides.
