An excellent education platform.

I have visited the site and think it is actually brilliant! They have so many free interactive games and activities and ideas for you to do with your children, even cooking recipes. They also have a lot of information on illnesses. There are also free interactive flash cards which are fully spoken. If you do pay the 99p a week which is value for money to be able to view your children's scores and access the full range of games they have on offer. I like it! Well done.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids who are learning simple math, reading, and spatial skills will enjoy the animated games on WACKY WINDOWS, a British educational site featuring a character named Harry who helpfully reads each activity's instructions, delivering enthusiastic praise or gentle correction based on kids' answers. The site's demo version includes a few games and encourages parents to sign up for a "free" account. But as it turns out, the "free" account only opens up content about recipes and common childhood maladies; to access more games and useful interactive features, parents will have to cough up a monthly fee. You can subscribe and receive a week for free -- which, if you're interested in supplemental online education for your child -- is a good way to evaluate the site's offerings.

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.
