What Is Yahooligans?Yahoo has done an excellent job of pulling together Yahooligans, a directory of Internet sites that are kid-friendly. As stated in their online info, "each site has been carefully checked by an experienced educator to ensure the content and links are appropriate for kids aged 7-12."
Yahooligans isn't only a directory, however. Many more fun features are available on the home page: Games, Movies, Reference, Parents and Teachers' Guides, to name just a few.
Yahooligans search feature scans listings in its unique, kid-friendly directory database to find your search queries. I've found that this kid-centric site does a pretty good job of filtering out the inappropriate stuff.
FeaturesHere are just a few of the fun features that Yahooligans has to offer:
- Games: Free online games for kids. There's some really fun games here (and not just for kids - I found myself playing some Robot Invasion game).
- Music: Listen to or watch your favorite music artist here.
- TV: One of the most family-friendly video sites on the Web, and that's a rare thing.
- Ask Earl: If you have a question that you'd like answered, go ahead and Ask Earl. It's like Dear Abby for kids.
