Advantages Bright Colourful Scenery with cheerful characters and great activities
Disadvantages Subscription could become expensive over time, some areas may not hold the attention of a younger child
How often have you ‘signed up’ for something in order to get MyPoints, iPoints, WebRewards, Beenz, Trocas etc etc and then once you’ve collected you’ve never looked at the product again!Well a couple of months ago I logged into iPoints and looked at what was on offer in the Earn category and there under the business and education category was an offer of 10 points for acquiring a trial CD for a new childrens internetmagazine.
If I liked what I saw then I could get 25 points for subscribing to the monthly magazine. Quick access via the iPoints homepage is available by using the clicksearch – Brainworks facility, but be careful as you need to click on the right links to get your points.If this seems a little off topic, I know and I am sorry but I like to explain how I come about the more unusual products for review.
Once entering the Brainworks website I was led straight to the registration page. The process was simple. Having read the introductory website via iPoints I then just completed my details. All that was needed was my name and email address together with my postal address.Within 10 days of registering my interest, I received an introductory letter and CD from Brainworks. The introductory trial disc is sent with no obligation to subscribe and is worth £14.99 according to the company.
Web Land is an Internet Comic (oops old word!) Childrens Magazine and subscription is £14.99 for three issues, however the first three issues and the trial CD I refer to are free so that you can ensure that the product meets your childs needs.There are two magazines available from Brainworks and both series are based on Web Land. The difference between the magazines is that one is for 3 to 5 year olds and is entitled ‘Lets Explore’ and the other called ‘Lets Learn’ covers ages 5 to 7. PC and internet connection to be able to undertake the downloads together with an email address for correspondence.
The reason that I particularly encourage my niece to use this is because it will get her used to using a computer as well as being educational.
As the magazines are downloaded onto your hard drive, you are not connected to the internet whilst your children browse the different areas of Web Land. This is just as well as there is plenty to see and do. Using the PC in this way is an advantage for me as when Connie is looking at her favourite places it normally takes ages and we are always connected (cost starts to become a factor then).
Upon entering WebLand and meeting the hosts named Wak and Tak ( a bright blue character and another orange moustached person), the brightness of the arena hits you.
