While the activities may be fun for the kids and do effectively teach the kids how to type, I was very disappointed in the content of what the kids are asked to type. This is what my son was asked to type : "Mary reads her horoscope every morning while eating toast." and "Ronald uses insect wings for spells." I do not want my kids spending time writing such things that go against what God would want them to think about. We will be looking for a new typing program.
My kids love this program; it gives them many different "games" and keeps their interest. My very skeptical 10 year old son didn't want to try a new program because he liked our previous one, but I find him on this program well after our school day has ended:weekends even! I recommend it for the price and value.
LOVE LOVE LOVE! I have a 6 yr old and a 12 year old and they both love to play. I must admit that the 6 year old is beginning to catch up:) I have bumped my older daughter to the Typing Platinum which is more comprehensive and applicable to her age/skill. Also, Typing for Kids 4 is the older version, if you had issues with this try the Typing for Kids 5...Definitely the winner;)
