Ok thanks Lemur,

I agree the navigation was terrible, I have redesigned it ..

I have made it clearer to read and in line.

In partnership thing, I agree, I have redesigned it to look less blurry. I have kept its position though as it sort of fills a hole and wont fit at the footer

I have lightened up the teddy to make him less dark, maybe you will warm to him.

The color scheme, well I chose purple because its like a Nursery color.... well so I thought,

Is it really that overpowering ?

I dont know...

I quite like it, ..... the feedback has generally been positive...

Anyway I do apprecaite you and Ntwiles comments, I have made my changes,

I think that will be me for a while...

I dont claim to be a website designer, probably would never make a good one.

But I am happier with what Ive got despite it all..

Regards

Snoopy.

Assume the following:
> You can use no images except for that well one.
> You cannot use any javascript (except for the tracker, this includes mouseovers by the way)
> You cannot use any relative or absolute positioning.
> Only your headers and footers may use that strong of purple

What you're going to need to know to do this:
> CSS Hover effects
> CSS Floats

I'll take a crack at the source and show you what I mean later.

This is a very bare bones version of the site from which you could build if you so choose. The fonts would need to be fixed as well as some of the spacing on the navigation (and its' styles). The CSS needs to be in an external page. Either way, this'll give you an idea what I meant as a basic concept. I can't say I have the time to be intricate about it, so it is a very very basic skeleton version:

I wouldn't agree with the black background/nav hover for a kid friendly site, but by and large I think a design similar to Lemur's would be a big improvement.

As I said, extremely bare bones. I did that in perhaps 30 minutes.

Resources for sprucing it up:

Backgrounds: http://subtlepatterns.com/
Color Themes: https://kuler.adobe....or-theme-36784/

The font you had for the header was good, but don't use an image. Use the font itself, and only for h1 or h2 elements.

I took your concept and ran with it.

I agree it looks better across all browsers and mobiles too.

Thanks very much for your help I really needed some.

New Site

Cheers

I agree the black hover was the first thing I changed :)
