Is It Any Good?
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.
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.
