Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):'s games are easy to figure out and, as an added bonus, typically offer more than one educational benefit. The Word Unscramble game, for example, mixes spelling and vocabulary work with logic practice; similarly, a narrator reads each letter in a word in the site's spelling lessons, which can help kids with pronounciation, reading, and usage. Kids often can get a hint if they're stuck and see correct answers for any questions they've missed, and they move at their own pace.
There are a few drawbacks. Kids need a computer with working speakers to view the site, or they'll lose half the educational benefit (and likely get confused). The free activities tend to be for younger children, and kids aren't likely to play the games multiple times because some seem to have only one level and feature the same words. Parents will have to subscribe to access more complex activities. However,'s free version provides a decent sample of the site's educational activities -- enough to help kids strengthen some skills -- and the paid version can help parents and teachers track their progress.

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.
