Too many pop-up ads

I am a teacher and I use this site for the puzzles. I really like the puzzles because there are so many and they offer different difficulties. My biggest gripe about it is all the pop-up ads. I understand the need for advertising, but when I have a classroom full of 5 year olds who move their mouse all over the screen, they roll over these pop-up ads and I have to go to each computer and close them. It is very frusterating and totally unnecessary.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

The game selections actually on TheKidzPage site are ok, but the political "Kerry-Bush Bash" game includes a link to UltimateArcade.com. Once you have taken the link, it's too easy to get to first person shooter games on Ultimate Arcade, such as "Flash Strike," where the object is for you to aim your gun and shoot as many counter-terrorists as you can. If you stick with the other games located right at the Kidz Page, though, you'll avoid most trouble, although there is a "Castle Defender" game where the object is to help a knight aim his arrow to shoot oncoming marauders, often through the head. Ick.

There's also an odd little chat environment called "Penguin Chat." There is no object. You become a penguin, walk around throwing snowballs at other people, tell canned jokes, and dance to the igloo band. You can also type things to other players; at the time of review it was mostly "ASL" (age-sex-location and the like).

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.
