Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Sassy Cartwheel Critters



Sassy, Inc., a manufacturer of infant and toddler toys, insists that in spite of its name, it takes its toys and kid products seriously. Its Web site, at first glance, seems designed more to instruct parents than to sell its products. But of course, all of its information on child development provides the intellectual basis for the toys and products it sells. Still, it supplies new parents with a month-by-month guide on how their children develop, how to use the child's senses to help them progress, what activities and games are appropriate at each age, and the features of toys--like character faces, realism, variety, patterns, simplicity, and high contrasting colors--that encourage development.
