Sesame Street

Let's face it, Sesame Street is not just educational; it's also sweetly addictive. (Are you listening, Elmo?) This site offers a great way to keep the magic going all day, with cute facts about all the characters on the show. Did you know that Abby Cadabby's birthday is Oct. 21 and that her favorite song is "Itsy Bitsy Spider"? Or that Telly Monster's best friend is Baby Bear? What's more, your kids can play educational games — just don't describe them as such — and watch videos with old friends like Cookie Monster, Big Bird and Bert and Ernie. During nap time, parents can check out the section on raising a family during tough economic times. Hey, even Sesame Street can get serious.

The classics: PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Yahoo! Kids, Funbrain, Disney
