Comfy EasyPC Play and Learn Keyboardby Leigh Felesky
- Computer keyboard for kids
- There are CDs with different levels, ranging from ages one through five. My toddler (2.5 years) found the beginner CD too simple and was more engaged by the intermediate CD called, “Home Hunt.”
About the toy:
EasyPC can be plugged into any computer using a USB port. From there, you load the CD and the child uses the EasyPC keyboard to guide them through the activities. There are many different keys, all large, colorful and clearly marked—they have different functions, for example, there are musical keys, color keys, weather/time keys and character keys. There’s also a phone that kids can talk on.
What parents need to know:
In a world of video games and TV, the pace of this game can seem on the slower side. That’s okay though, according to the box, the EasyPC develops a range of cognitive and language skills, not to mention it allows them to have their own “puter", just like mommy and daddy’s.
The bottom line:
The toy provides my toddler with twenty minutes of fun while I’m making dinner and it’s a nice alternative to TV. He feels pretty special being able to use his own keyboard without anyone saying, “Don’t touch my computer!” And I feel good that he is being introduced to computers and developing skills.
I would recommend this toy for other families, especially if your child is interested in computers. You might want to get a more advanced CD level to keep them engaged.
