We encourage you to adjust your computer chair so that your child, sitting in your lap is directly facing the screen at a suitable distance and within easy reach of the spacebar. On laptops you may need to adjust the angle of the screen so your child can see clearly. We also encourage you to manage the time your child is in front of the screen, twenty minutes is plenty.
Our online games will help your child develop many useful skills - understanding cause and effect, tracking moving objects, anticipating the need for action etc. Sometimes children just need a distraction to help them get over a problem time and our games may be a fun way to assist. It may also be a great way to spend a few minutes in the busy child schedule!
Your child will love to repeat the games over and over! When you wish to change a game, just use the 'back' button on your browser to return to the games menu.
If you want more information on the individual games please select from the menu on the left.
Information that applies to each game
Use your mouse or touchscreen to start the game for your child by clicking on the Go button. Your child may be able to do this with a touchscreen or possibly a mouse. The first screen will not respond to a 'spacebar' press. However after the initial screen your child can use the 'spacebar' to perform the actions. Your child can click the 'Go' button or press the 'spacebar.' For special access a switch simulating a spacebar can be used.
Please note: as with all flash games, if the mouse is clicked outside the game area (easy to do accidently), the spacebar event will not be picked up by the game. To fix this, simply click anywhere within the game and when the spacebar is pressed the key event will be sent to the game. (Animations used are credited in the online game.)
