Yahooligans! (www.yahooligans.com) is a kids-oriented directory that is part of the Yahoo! network of sites. Each site listed in the Yahooligans! directory has been carefully checked by an experienced educator to ensure that the site’s content is appropriate for children aged 7 to 12.
As you can see in Figure Yahooligans! works just like the main Yahoo! Web directory, which means you can find sites by either browsing through categories or directly searching. The difference is that this directory includes categories and sites of particular interest to children and teenagers—as well as additional features and services.
In addition to all the cool kids-friendly content, Yahooligans! offers a few other neat features to help protect your children online. For example, when you conduct a search on Yahooligans!, it searches only the Yahooligans! directory—it doesn’t back out to the Web for a larger (unsupervised) index search. And the Yahooligans! directory doesn’t include sites with any content inappropriate for younger Web surfers, so it’s completely kids-safe. In other words, Yahooligans! is the perfect start page for your kids.
