When I had the opportunity to check out Fraboom with my children I was excited because I am always looking for fun and educational ways to engage my children and teach them necessary computer skills. Fraboom is so unique in that it is an “Online Children’s Museum” and it offers various areas to explore including live classes, interactive books, games and Fraboom T.V.
Let’s talk about the live classes because in my opinion that is what really makes Fraboom stand out. Several times throughout the day your child can participate in a live drawing class which has an actual teacher that interacts with your child throughout the class. Your child will learn to draw specific characters such as a cartoon pig, spiders, noses and eyes etc. I am very impressed with these interactive classes and my kids beg me to do at least one every day.

There is a variety of fun learning games that have helped teach my kids how to use a computer keyboard and they especially enjoy “Beeline” which reminds me of my old favorite “Frogger.”
The interactive book and Fraboom T.V. are also very entertaining but educational too. For example, the videos are several minutes in length and are very interesting. My children love “Ants In My Pants”, “The Tell Tale Heartbeat” and “Sink or Swim”. One night we were watching a documentary on T.V. about insects and my three year old son made a comment about “soldier ants” and how they help the colony. My husband asked him where he learned that and he said, “Fraboom T.V.
Many of the areas of Fraboom are available for free but to have full unlimited monthly access to all the areas including the interactive live classes you can purchase a Fraboom Gold Membership which is only $5.99 per month and is a real bargain in my opinion for what you receive with your membership. I love that I have an educational and fun learning online option when my children ask to use the computer. If you are a homeschooling family, this is an excellent and affordable way to supplement your curriculum and daily lessons.
