Have you ever heard of a ponycorn? Going ahead with the assumption you haven’t, they’re best explained as “the best thing in the world, ‘cause they’re like ponies AND unicorns.” That’s the description straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak – or, rather, from “Cassie, age 5,” the young brains behind Sissy’s Magical Ponycorn Adventure, an online point-and-click game created with the help of Cassie’s dad (“Ryan, age 33” as the game’s credits put it).  Cassie voices the main character, Sissy, with great aplomb as she goes off traipsing through rainbow doors in search of ponycorns. As you lead her through, Sissy comments on the characters she runs into, including a goat on a pole (“That’s weird”), a dinosaur whom she proceeds to turn into a mouse (“You’re a mouse now. How do you like them apples?”), and an evil lemon (don’t ask).

Bonus: as heartwrenchingly cute as the game itself is the story behind the game (with pictures of Cassie, proud dad Ryan and the rest of the family!).
