Website to help kids understand what is behind the advertising they see

I was recently reading an article on the Motley Fool and it talked about ways to educate our children on financial ways, below was a lead in,

“Pull back the curtain on retail marketing tricks. Kids don’t like being told what to do. Show them that advertisers are bossier than Mom and Dad are with a set of interactive lessons on common marketing mind tricks, available at pbskids.org/dontbuyit. ”

So I went out to the website, this is actually pretty good, probably for 7-12 year olds. My kids are still too small for the content and the background of information it goes into, but older kids may get a kick out of it, and if it can be cool and help teach our kids a little something….it has to be good right?
