QUALITY

The VEGGIETALES site offers several fun activities for fans of the biblically-based VeggieTales books and DVDs -- including character bios, stories, games, and videos. The site also has plenty of content for younger kids: Some of the games offer easy, medium, and hard options to allow for different age levels, and kids who are too young to read can still flip through a virtual storybook and opt to have the tale read to them. Kids can't chat with each other, so their VeggieTales virtual experience should be a safe one. Their only method of interacting involves sending e-cards -- which they design using pre-determined phrases like "Your kindness always makes for smooth sailing!"

The site stresses a strong religious theme -- including biblical quotes and characters who share God-related messages -- so if you're not comfortable talking about religion, this may not be the best site for your family. However, kids who are VeggieTale aficionados will likely enjoy the site's simple-to-play games and short stories.

Online interaction: Users can create e-cards using pre-set backgrounds and sayings and send them by entering a friend's email address.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about how to have fun on a website that offers stuff for sale without buying anything. For a website to be fun, should you need to have to purchase anything? Help kids learn the value of a virtual dollar.

  • What do you think is more entertaining: printing things out to color in and play with, or playing games and activities online?

  • The website features several activities entire families can participate in together. What kinds of fun things can your family do together?
