Since children are different than adults, their Web-sites should be designed according to their characteristics and expectations. In this study, we aimed to determine children's perceptions and navigation behaviors toward the Web-sites which were designed for their age group. 12 children (5 female, 7 male) participated in the study. Two Web-sites were used in the scope of the study. The children were asked to perform five tasks in each Web-site (totally 10 tasks). The data were collected through observations and interviews. Results of the study indicated that children like big pictures, large font size, visible items and bright colors. They have difficulties when they need to scroll down, or face with items which are not similar with their life experiences. Differences were found between boys and girls regarding their preferred Web-sites.
