Highlight of the recently opened US Food and Drug Administration's Kids Homepage is Yorick, FDA's "favorite skeleton," which allows users to see the various medical devices and implants that can replace real body parts. Included are such items as a glass eye, a silicon cochlear implant, a hip and a knee, among others. In addition, there is a kids quiz on food safety, a medicine cabinet word find (unfortunately not interactive), a tobacco quiz, information about vaccines, and a food safety coloring book, among other features. Information is aimed mostly at young children, but Yorick should also be of interest to older users.
