"Tell Nick: "Naughty" Games are Not for Young Children

Nickelodeon, the children's media empire, is promoting sexualized and violent video games to children as young as preschoolers. Its popular gaming website, AddictingGames.com, features games such as Candy the Naughty Cheerleader, Bloody Day ("Back alley butchering has never been so much fun. . . . How many kills can you rack?") and the Perry the Sneak series, where gamers take the role of a peeping Tom trying to catch revealing glimpses of scantily clad and naked women. Nickelodeon promotes, and links directly to, Addictinggames.com on its Nick.com website for children and even on NickJr.com, its website for preschoolers."...

"Children's Web Sites Can Lead to Adult Content
Some Sites Directed at Kids May Open Doors to Other Content

Kids are more and more Web-savvy these days. They play games, work on their vocabulary and do math exercises -- all online. But some of those kid-friendly Web sites they go to may be opening doors to other content parents don't want them to see.

Web sites designed to help kids learn can carry no-so-kid appropriate materials. Parents might think Nickelodeon's Web site Nick.com is worry-free.

Robin Stoehr never thought twice about her kids, 8 and 11, using it until she saw games like Naughty Baby-Sitter and Spank the Monkey. "...

Parent ALERT re: Nickelodeon Game Website

This looks like old news. I did a search on Nick.com and did not find the games mentioned. But, even so, it is a heads-up to parents who trust certain sites on name recognition alone. Check it out and find out what your kids are doing on-line.

Nope, it's still there. Under "More" at the top of the main screen (and the nicktoons screen, but thankfully not the nick jr screen and the teennick screen) is a menu with an addictinggames link. Which takes you to a site with such tasteful and child-appropriate games as "Naughty Elevator," "Perry the Perv," "Pee Ball" ("Think peeing on a urinal cake is a fun game?"), "Whack your Ex," and "Breeder" with the, umm, affectionate rabbits. Plus many more. :ehh:

Sheesh. It's not like they make it easy to be responsible.
