Site of the Day:

Chore Monster website homepage

As the father of a 4-year-old, I was naturally drawn to this site. Although my son doesn’t have his own iPhone (yet), still gets me thinking about the future of putting him to work! Child labor laws aside, this site is awesome for so many reasons. One aspect I really love is that it appeals to parents and kids alike. On the parent side, the purpose (helping kids responsibly manage their chores at home) is clear and powerfully presented. From a kid’s perspective, the site’s theme is fun and enticing. The trick in designing websites for kids is to not overdo the goofiness. This kid-friendly website achieves the right balance between thematic design and meaningful content. Love it.
