Terrific Tot Sites ~ Kneebouncers

Recently I found a fun site for toddlers called Kneebouncers. Aside from the cute characters, great graphics and fun games, they had me when I read the phrase; "To the sleep deprived, the spit-up donning and the beaten down...welcome." Made me love them already! {grins}

Kneebouncers was created by parents for parents babies and toddlers and I can't sum it up any better than this quote from their site:
"Our goal is to provide you and your family with a whole lot of thumping, bumping, crashing, bashing, smashing, splashing, popping, bopping, wiggling and especially giggling."
Some of the great games are: Pop-a-lot (bubble popping), Music Maker (music you create and watch), The Bed Jumping, Vroom! (big vehicles!) and so many more! The games are simple for your tot to run ~ just bang on a keyboard, touch a key, slide the mouse ~ the movement triggers the games to work.

There are several characters you can 'meet' by clicking on the that character's bubble: Sly Cat (the courteous cat), Caesar (the silly little puppy), Freddy (the brave little bear), Horatio (the happy, happy hippo), Foo Foo (the funny, honey bunny), and Sammy (the busy, bouncing monkey). Each of the characters focuses on a specific character trait/manner also: saying please and thank you, waiting your turn, cleaning up, washing hands, sharing, and helping at home.

In addition to the games you can play online, they also have some other great features: an online forum for parents to meet/talk, free coloring pages and games to embed/download to your webpage, and a newsletter. Should your child get attached to the characters, they even have some character merchanidse available. Be sure to check out Kneebouncers with your little one!
Hope you enjoy this Terrific Tot Site! To see more featured sites, click here!

Thanks for the tip; I've bookmarked it to try when he's awake.

First off I agree about Sammy the monkey being busy, bouncing monkey. I know my Sammy certainly is :-) Very cool site I am sure Sammy will have lots of fun playing on there.
