PebblesPlay is a fun little Flintstones based world for your child to play around in. What a fun way to spend some time with the animated family that used to grace the screen of prime-time television! The site plays off of a map layout which you explore through the movement of your mouse. Each little house and building has an icon above it. There are different types of icons and each type results in a different Flintstones themed outcome. The plus sign tells you a little fun fact about the building, the star brings you to a themed mini-game, the sideways triangle plays a video, and the factory icon shows your progress throughout the game. This game as well as many others has a login option which helps save your overall progress in unlocking new parts of the game. The login option doesn’t require a parent’s email and if you are uncomfortable with a login, you can still enjoy play as a guest.
My favorite game of the three I’ve played so far is called Slab Slinger. This game as does the others, gives you the option to play as either Fred or Barney. You advance through the game by hooking onto stone slabs with Fred/Barney and their helper dinosaur and then tossing them to the turtles located on the opposite side of the screen. This game works on math skills, specifically on angles and projectile trajectory. You must choose the correct angle for the stone slabs to be thrown or you will completely miss your target and have to start over. In addition to the right angle choice you are battling against a timer for maximum point accumulation. As you progress further into the game the conveyor belt speeds up and different shaped stones are required for different turtles.
In addition to the games, there are a number of “Rock-tivities“. This page includes links to coloring pages, a prehistoric postcard creator, a wacky word search, pterodactyl origami, and a volcano lava creator. The volcano lava seems like a really fun activity to do with your child, or for a school science project. The site gives you step by step instructions to help ensure a safe time for all. The postcards are interesting in that they have spots to upload your own photo face into the picture and could be fun little smiles to send to relatives or friends. This site also has a section for all those cooking-lovers in Wilma’s Recipes. It’s a fun section with a bunch of recipes that use the Flintstones cereals with names such as “Wilma’s Holiday Tree” and “Cocoa Pebbles Trail Mix Bars”.
All in all, this site is definitely worth checking out especially for the free price! It’s really a site people of almost any age can find something worthwhile on. Once onto the site there haven’t really been any ads around, Post Cereal’s brands are mentioned in the recipes and videos but nothing too in your face. Enjoy!
