A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that nothing is sold on the site. If you really need a Smokey T-shirt you'll have to hunt for the licensee section and click on a manufacturer's link. It's almost impossible to stumble upon this area. Resources include an educator's guide and a downloadable activity book.
Is It Any Good?
In addition to Smokey's safety tips, older kids can find interesting facts about the science of fires, including how they're started and the role they play in maintaining certain ecosystems. Younger visitors will enjoy the simple arcade-style games in the Smokey Kids section. Two technical gripes: The text in the Kid's Section is tiny, and several of the links don't work.
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.
