The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that kids have to buy a U.B. Funkeys Starter Kit (about $20) at a local retailer or online store to play the game on this site. There's a rather complex installation process before the Pokemon-looking Funkeys characters are ready to plug into the USB port of your PC (won't work on a Mac). Also, kids collect or earn fake coins to "buy" items and decorate rooms. Forums are coming soon.

What's it about?
At UBFUNKEYS.COM, kids can read the popular computer game's storyline; watch video of the games they'll be able to play if they buy the product; read bios of the 40+ Funkeys they can buy; and upload their "crib" they've decorated for friends to see after they've bought and played the game. (Notice the pattern here?) There are a few interactive elements like quizzes and polls about the characters, as well as promises of more community forums and content coming soon.
Is it any good?
