The long acclaimed Dr Seuss books finally have a home on the web, Seusville - a site for all of the crazy and fantastical creations of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known by his pen name "Dr Seuss". The unfortunate part is that Seussville doesn't have any real videos, but rather is full of animations and puzzles geared towards children.

The site is a paradise for crazy contraptions and really makes great use of theme to build a living atmosphere straight out of a Seuss book. The Playground features a variety of different activities for kids with characters pulled straight from the books from the Grinch (the Grinch that Stole Christmas) to Horton (Horton Hears a Who).

The biggest setback is that navigation is a little difficult as a result of the sheer chaos of the site, which is largely due to the atmosphere of Seuss settings which are ripe with absurb buildings and forests.

The Overall Ratings for Seussville:
Show Diversity: (3/5)
Based on the mixture of television shows available on the site.
Loading Speed: (3/5)
The time taken to navigate the site and load videos.
Ease of Navigation: (2/5)
How easy is it to use and navigate.
Advertisements: (1/5)
Based on the annoyance level of advertisements on this site, the amount of ads, and the volatility of ads appearing on the page.
The lower the rating, the less annoying the ads are.

Total Score: 14/20

Seussvilles is an entertaining site, but unfortunately they went down the path of making the site kid-centric, meaning that the age-defying Seuss books official website will only be of real use to children or those adults easily amused. The site has some great activities and puzzles for kids and should be a good resource for parents looking for stuff to fill their kids day.
