Inspiring fascination in children can in itself be a very inspiring motivation. I like these sites because they are fun, but are void of the perilous social aspects like chat. These are Flash sites, and Wonka requires the newest version. So be prepared and go get it!
The Bratzsite is different because in order for the girl to register, a parent must also set up an account. Although their site has a long way to go before attaining the vitalization of Barbie Girls, it is still very nice.
Speaking of Barbie Girls, it is set to shed its beta status in July – that’s just around the corner! I am hoping that by October, when I will most likely be purchasing one of the ‘dolls’, all the kinks will be worked out. One can always hope.
