SpongeBob Squarepants Typing 2008 is educational and fun, for kids ages 7 and up. Kids will get to play with SpongeBob and his friends, while improving their typing skills. As typing skills grow, kids also pick up nifty facts about undersea life and nautical nonsense!

Summary: good, but not what I'd hoped.
Comment: This product is decent. My eight year old and his friends had a blast playing all the different typing games with their favorite characters. Installation and navigation through the program was easy. What it doesn't contain are the basics...the actual teaching of hand position and repetative learning of keystrokes by finger, that we all remember from typing class (jfjfjf kdkdkd lslsls etc. to learn where the keys are and which finger types them). There is one game that shows hand position, but it's not visually very clear, at least to me. I've kind of put this game away until we get a 'standard' typing tutor to teach him these basics first. Otherwise I feel that he is being encouraged to get really good at the hunt-and-peck method. It's too bad too, the game is really fun. It would be great for a child that already knows the basics and wants to practice in a game environment.

Summary: Not an instruction program
Comment: This is a program for kids who already know how to type and need practice, it does not teach typing.

Summary: Very easy; kids took right to it
Comment: The kids (ages 6 & 8) took right to it. no instructions necessary. they have a lot of fun with it and within the first few days had learned about half of the keys. Great way to get young kids properly introduced to proper typing.

Summary: Great Practice for Kids!
Comment: This program is fun and challenging with different levels to master. My son has some fine motor skill issues and needs to learn typing in his computer classes at school. He was struggling last year, but has been practicing over the summer and just got his first A in a type to learn program for his computer grade. His younger sisters are also learning where the letters are located on the keyboard by playing some of the beginning games that help you get familiar with their location. I'm very pleased with this product!
