I outline how to quantize the spinning particle, the Brink-Schwarz
superparticle and the Berkovits pure spinor superparticle in
$AdS_k*S^k$ backgrounds, by embedding the target space in flat space-time.
Quantization of the superparticle is a key step towards quantization of
the superstring in these backgrounds.
