Logging on the computer as a child, I typed “games for kids” into the Internet Explore search engine. I’d spend hours exploring my favorite sites and games. My taste ranged from parking games to surgery games, and everything in between.

 

The all-time best game of them all included fashion designing and decorating boutiques in GirlSense. This site inspired my young desire to become a fashion designer, though my designs for sale never grew popular. GirlSense became a huge hit in my 4th grade class. When we’d stay indoors for recess, girls (and some boys) rushed for laptops in order to sign into their accounts. I remember eventually finding out through YouTube videos how to create wigs out of fabric which actually turned out awful. Unfortunately, the site shut down.

 

Luckily, one of the best games still exists with many different versions. Bloons Tower Defense allows players to set up defense against balloons on courses. One must never let the balloons pass through the other end of the course. As the levels progress, different types of balloons become harder to pop and they come out progressively faster. A few defenses against them include dart-throwing monkeys, cannons, tacks, and ice makers.

 

Because of my love for dolls as a kid, I naturally gravitated towards dress-up games most when surfing the web. Mattel created one of the bests based on My Scene dolls. In the My Scene Shopping Spree game, players have the ability to pick outfits for several dolls. Based on the chosen setting, outfits include tops, bottoms, shoes, purses, and other accessories.

 

I loved any game that included driving a car. For this reason, I enjoyed playing the Polly Party Pickup Game on the Polly Pocket site. Using the arrow keys, I picked up each of Polly’s friends and take them to the mall while simultaneously avoiding road blocks such as oil spills. Playing the game often made me skilled in beating the time limit.

 

Sometimes I face boredom and go to some of these sites to pass time. The year may change, but my love for these games won’t.
