Where do the techno tots like to go online?

Not surprisingly, the most popular sites are based on children’s TV shows.

Many offer the opportunity to play games with different levels of difficulty, watch video clips, interact with a story or print out your favourite character.

BBC Cbeebies online producer Olivia Dickinson says: “They use fine motor skills when they use the mouse or keyboard. So they can go up to using the spacebar, to using the arrow keys, to using the mouse.

“They also learn some gross motor skills, in terms of some of the bigger movements of the mouse, but also in terms of physical development, when we give them activities to do in front of the computer, like dance and music.
