    Hi!
    I have recently started a new educational site for kids: http://www.AskZacky.com.
    The site is NOT a seach engine (like many of them out there)
    and hence site does not redirect kids to other sites by providing links: the site simply and directly replies to kids and answers their questions fully (they way Ask.com used to be!). This site offers amazing and innovative kids design and monitors its content extremely closely to make sure all the contect is suitable for kids. Kids can ask questions falling onto 12 categories as well as questions not
    falling onto any category listed (like personal questions). Our main goal is to serve needs of
    curious children and answer/explain most complex topics to them using a simple language.
    And one of the most amazing feature of this site is that it offers monthly prizes to most active site users!!
