Webgame Wednesday: Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure

Spring is in the air. That's as good an explanation as any as to why I'm in such a cute-craving mood this week. After the long, hard winter, I feel the need for rainbows and butterflies. Filling the bill (and then some) is Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure. The game was programmed by 5-year-old Cassie and her dad. Cassie did all the drawings and the voices. I'm guessing dad pitched in on the coding. Anyway, Sissy's Magical Ponycorn Adventure takes us on a point-and-click adventure to a fantasy kingdom full of ponycorns. (That particular term will be explained in the game.) Your job is to collect all the ponycorns and put them in jars. The game, designed with young ones in mind, will only take adults a few minutes to solve. But, lord a-mighty, is this thing cuter than Zooey Deschanel in a Hello Kitty T-shirt.
