Compared to many other sites we’ve looked at, Disney Playhouse has high quality content for kids, especially preschoolers. The games and activities on the site are really well done; almost all of them feature verbal instructions, making it much easier for preshool kids to know how to play the games and navigate around the mini-sites. Most of the featured programs are also shows that we really like, including Charlie and Lola, Bear in the Big Blue House, and The Koala Brothers.
Although the main playhouse page has ads including pop-ups (still pretty crappy in my opinion), the featured sections are all ad free. It’s also fairly easy for kids to unknowingly click on fun-looking links that actually take them to less desirable parts of the disney website. AJ has become pretty adept at knowing which links keep her in the playhouse and which ones don’t, but supervision here can be pretty important.
What other sites would you recommend for preschool age kids?
