About a month ago Highlights Monster Day went free permanently.  If you have young kids this would be a great way to introduce them to what a typical day in the life of a kid looks like, regardless of whether you are a monster or a human.  As a parent you might even find yourself playing around with this a bit every now and again, though it’s not as adult addictive as a many of the other kids’ games I’ve talked about over time.  Still, it’s not really meant to be for you anyway, and you can’t really beat free.
