i everyone! I'm Tiki the Penguin. My website is specially for kids (but grown-ups can look too if they really want). Did you know I'm the first penguin anywhere to make a website? And I'm now starting to find out how to make short animations.... I have to say it's really difficult. I also have a blog, just for fun!
I've got loads of stuff for you here. Some is just fun (like jokes, questions, quizzes and games) and some is more serious... Most popular are my Guides for kids where you can find out important things which you need to know about our world.

is everywhere. It's getting to be one of the worst forms ofpollution,
especially when it ends up in the oceans. Update

Have you tried out my Time Machine? With this wonderful machine you can whizz back through time to the very beginning of everything. (It really works too. Look at the picture on the left! But don't worry: it's perfectly safe to have a go on. I guarantee you'll get back to the Present!)

Then there's my Quizzes, and Features such as my Galapagos Islands trip and an incredible true story about an island and a planet. And don't miss my Fun stuff pages .... music, puzzles and loads of jokes sent in by kids like you.
Please help! My website needs donations to keep it running. If everyone who looked at my website for just this month donated the cost of a burger and bottle of cola, I'd have enough money to keep website going for a year or more. Click here to find out more.
And hey! Do you want to help make my site even more cool? You can by writing to me... or tell me about something you're doing to help make our world better. I promise I'll reply to friendly messages. Here's how to email me.
Bye for now...
