The website is OK. The games aren't too engaging. The animals do not talk so a child needs everything read to them and many of the games are the same in design. The good is it's free, the bad is that there are many better websites out there.

Is It Any Good?

Top-notch graphics and engaging animated characters offer a welcome place for preschoolers to gently learn skills and become accustomed to using a computer. The offerings are plentiful, and there are enough games, activities, stories, and downloads to provide hours of educational entertainment. Parents will appreciate the resources and links, teachers will benefit from the various lesson plans, and kids will enjoy the wide variety of games, puzzles and activities so much they won't even realize they're learning at the same time. The site also includes -- and encourages -- many offline activities, including crafts, party ideas, coloring pages, and travel activities.

Online interaction: Users can send simple animated ecards to other friends' email addresses. The messages are pre-selected and encouraging ("It's so cool to see you back at school!"), so there's no chance of inappropriate language getting through

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.
