Let's Play... just for fun

This is play time! We come here when we just want to have fun. This page is growing and needs lots more to be added to it, but for now I wanted to get you going with a couple of surveys and a few educational, but fun, games and brain teaser sites.

A note on the surveys... I need to involve my audience, and you should feel privileged! Wow, do I need a shake. Anyway, please take a moment to answer the questions. The more respondents the better of course, but we want true answers so the results can be meaningful. Please keep it real.

For you kids, fill in the kids' profile.

It will let me know a little about your interests and how to better tailor my web-site. I don't collect any email addresses or ask you to sign-up for anything, so just have some fun.

If you are a parent or guardian, please complete the parents' profile.

PBS Kids is a great find and it's not out to sell you anything. Your kids can play here and have a great time. The support advertising is minor.

In general, I look for sites that are safe for kids, have few if any advertising banners and are not pushing sponsors overtly to a young audience.
