"Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself." -- George Bernard Shaw
When we started Boing Boing, our mission was to make a zine and a blog that we wanted to read ourselves. And when we launched the Apps for Kids podcast, the idea was to review apps that kids and parents could both enjoy.
When we started thinking about a Boing Boing website for kids, we planned to call it Boing Boing Kids. But we wanted it to be interesting to kids and their parents, so we changed our mind and called it Boing Boing Family instead.
Launched today, Boing Boing Family covers entertainment, technology, and culture, with a focus on the parent/child experience. From DIY activities like "How to make a stop-motion cartoons" or "Building your own jug band instruments," to reviews of products and apps that keep families connected through technology, Boing Boing Family is a launch pad for parents and kids to have a great time together -- learning, exploring, playing, and being creative.
Jerry Seinfeld once famously quipped, “There’s no such thing as ‘fun for the whole family.’” Boing Boing Family proves him wrong.
