ToxMystery<http://toxmystery.nlm.nih.gov/> is the National Library of Medicine's interactive learning site, designed to teach kids ages 7 to 10 important lessons about potential environmental health hazards.

Kids (and adults!) can follow Toxie the cat through the ToxMystery house and identify the hazards hidden in each room.  Once all the hazards have been found, Toxie will dance for you!

ToxMystery<http://toxmystery.nlm.nih.gov/> is available in English and Spanish, and also provides resources for both parents and teachers about household chemicals, poison prevention, and environmental health education.
