Cute Cartoon Creation Script

leave a comment »

This is a bit of fun for the kids, two cartoon characters talking the script you input. It’s called Cute Cartoon Creation.

Choose your language, select a couple of characters, a locations backdrop and then write what you want your characters to say. Then away they go. It’s fun.

FuseBox – Understanding electricity

leave a comment »

Vic Voltage is the cartoon character set to help primary or elementary school children around the Fusebox site about electricity and its history, using interactive flash games, activities and general information.

There are circuit boards to create using drag-and-drop components. You can see how three common electrical things work in the home. There’s a section on safety, which took me back to a public information film of the 70s. You can also play an electrically themed version of hangman.

The site is created by CE Electric UK who supply electricity to many homes in the UK, so they should know what they’re talking about.
