If there is one website you do not want to miss this Christmas season, it is the website for Alvin and the Chipmunks! This website has everything you are looking for to keep you entertained for hours! The absolute best part of the website is the “Get Munked” feature. When you arrive at the homepage of the site, a record player rotates the links of features available on the site, on it, you’ll see the “Get Munked” link. Click on it to get munked!! What does that mean you ask? Well, when you get munked, essentially you are transformed into a chipmunk! You get to pick your hair, body type, and gender, then you get to record a message which is transformed into a chipmunk voice – you sound exactly like you’re one of Alvin, Simon, or Theodore’s pals! Your chipmunk voice is perfect! If you don’t have a microphone on your computer, don’t worry, you have an option of recording it by telephone (you’re given an 800 number to call), you can type your message with Text 2 Speech, or you can choose from prerecorded messages if you’re really shy. The best however is using your own voice! Back on the main chipmunk homepage, you’ll find a link to games, and the webmasters didn’t skimp – most of the games are simple, “repeat what I’m doing” type games, however sometimes simpler is better – they’re all fun and all addictive! There’s Alvin’s Harmonica, Theo’s Snack Attack, Simon’s Crazy Keys, and Theodore’s Thump. Two of the songs – Simon Sings and Avlin’s Guitar Genius were still listed as “Coming Soon”. Of course the website also has links to the movie trailer, the movie synopses, and “meet the chipmunks”. In the “download” section you’ll find wallpaper, aim icons, screensaver, and a simple Alvin signature that you can download to put on your outgoing emails (nice touch). Another nice feature of the website is the link to “Mobile”….if you have a cellphone, here you’ll wallpapers and ringtones you can download (standard text messaging rates of course apply). Oh, and I forgot to mention one of the best parts, as you’re exploring the site, the music tracks of the Chipmunks songs play (and they’re excellent!) – you can change tracks via the links on the bottom of the homepage. A great background for a great movie site! Don’t miss the Alvin and the Chipmunks site if you’re looking for a great movie site…best site found this season!
