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

Positive Messages

What's it about?

THESPLAT.COM is a companion site to Nickelodeon's TV programming block of the same name, which features classic '90s Nick shows such as Kenan & Kel, Rugrats, and Clarissa Explains It All. The site centers on posting highlights from social media conversations about Nick's vintage shows, along with show clips. The site also features a few interactive elements, such as a game and trivia quiz based on Nick shows, and kids can view a schedule of when shows will air.

Is it any good?

Pre-millennium Nickelodeon show fans should love this social media-centric site, which features teasers, clips, and posts from other show aficionados. It's a great place to gather and share your love for classic Nick programming, ranging from Rugrats to Hey Dude. But aside from a game and a quiz, there really isn't much more to Kids won't find educational aids, activities, or much reading material. There isn't even much information about what the site is about. The site is fairly new, so more content may be added later; it would help flesh the site out a bit to make it a more well-rounded experience. But though kids may not currently walk away from with a ton of new skills or learning experiences, parents can feel OK with the fact that they aren't seeing anything inappropriate -- and the site may actually help cut down on kids' screen time, since they're watching clips instead of full episodes.
