The network known for "Dora the Explorer," "SpongeBob SquarePants" and sliming has another feather in their cap (kind of): They're the winner of the Worst Toy of the Year Award. Yes, Nickelodeon has won the annual award for a website they sponsor: AddictingGames.com.
The winner of this year's TOADY (Toys Oppressive And Destructive to Young Children) was decided based upon online votes from parents complaining about AddictingGames.com, a site that serves up ultra-violent and mature-themed online games and which can be accessed via all Nickelodeon sites -- including NickJr.com.
"That Nickelodeon promotes violent and sexualized games to young children shows how little regard the company has for their well-being," says Susan Linn of the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood.
She's not kidding. One of the games available to young users is called the "Perry the Sneak," which allows players to pretend to be Peeping Toms watching women showering. The most successful voyeurs get to hop in the sack with a girl! What?!
Take a look at more of the games available on the site ... all under the Nickelodeon banner. Would you let YOUR kids play these games?
