PLAY ONLINE

NGAkids interactives require Adobe's Shockwave Player. Macintosh web browsers are not 100% compatible with the online version of this program. Please download the Mac app below or request a free CD.

Download to your Macintosh

Due to recent changes in OS X, the online version of programs that include freehand painting and drawing no longer work with new Macs. The freestanding application we are offering below does not require a web browser or plug-ins and it's fully compatible.

Mac users, please download the program.
