The Moms' & Kids' Playground, Friendly Online Games for Parents & Preschoolers, Launches on Funbrain.com

Safe, Fun, Online Environment Features Exciting Activities for Kids Ages 2-6 to Share With Parents

BOSTON, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents and preschoolers now have a safe, fun environment to enjoy games together on the Internet with the launch of a new playground on Funbrain.com. The Moms' & Kids' Playground, designed for parents and their kids ages 2-6, features unique, colorful characters and houses 22 exciting games suitable for first-time Web users. Funbrain is a leading online publisher for preschool to middle school children. The popular site includes teacher-endorsed educational games for children, online books, puzzles and games, comics and more.

"With children engaging with computers and the Internet at increasingly younger ages, parents are looking for safe, sensitive, interactive and educational online games for their preschool children," said Jess M. Brallier, publisher, Funbrain. "We developed the games on The Moms' & Kids' Playground for little ones, who are likely nonreaders, so they can sit on their Mom's or Dad's lap, get started using the computer and the Internet and enjoy the clever games together."

The simple, mouse-driven, safe, educational online games in The Moms' & Kids' Playground are designed for children under age six. These fun online games for kids foster hand-eye coordination and visual acuity as well as reinforce important concepts, such as counting. The brightly colored characters featured in each online game are engaging and their antics are sure to make little ones giggle as they build important skills, learn new concepts and, best of all, share time with a parent.

With a parent's guidance, children can learn to use the mouse with online educational games, such as "Frost Bite," where they move the little blue character in the stocking cap so he catches snowflakes on his tongue. With "Color Creature," they can build mouse skills and learn colors, by coloring in the cute creature online.

Preschoolers will build counting skills by helping the animated green pickle pop five bubbles in "Pickle Pop," collecting the correct number of stars in "Star Climber" or playing any number of the online educational games and puzzles for children in The Moms' & Kids' Playground on Funbrain.com.

And when both young readers and parents of pre-readers click on the girl on the tree-swing in the playground, they can share the heartwarming online book, "Tess's Tree," illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds, "New York Times" bestselling children's author and illustrator.

When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing.
