Games are not even easy to play!

Is it any good?

The CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER site offers more activities than many film-focused fan sites -- sure, there's plenty of plugs to see the movie (many sections include the option to view the trailer) and information about the characters and plot, but kids can also travel around the virtual world, learning Narnia facts and playing sword training and other games.

The design is also impressive: Ocean waves swirl at the bottom of the screen, and epic music plays as you click around the graphically elaborate site. Generally, the seafaring journey kids take on the site is a safe one: They can't chat with each other, and there isn't much stuff that might be too scary for younger kids. The site's only potential problem is its frequent pushes to Facebook -- users are encouraged to discuss riddles and other topics on the social networking site. However, most posts on the film's page are clean and just center around fans' excitement about the movie.

Online interaction: The site doesn't offer chatting or other direct interactions, but some of the activities have a link to Facebook where fans can connect with others for discussions via the social networking site.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about whether this site is fun to look at without seeing the movie. Are sites that are trying to sell you something -- whether it's a product or a movie ticket -- any less fun if you don't buy what's for sale?

  • The movie also has a Facebook profile that's frequently updated. What kind of things should you consider before you "like" the movie's Facebook page -- or any Facebook page (or post a comment on it)? (Parents: For more tips on social networking and safety, check out our Facebook for Parents article.)

  • The movie and site stress exploring and adventure. What kind of adventures are fun for kids -- and which might be not safe or might be more appropriate to do with an adult?
