Hi

we are starting to look for some quality educational software for kids - 4+ year old.

Anybody got any suggestions of some good quality software that educates kids while still being a bit of fun for them?

ideally Mac software, but can run windows if necessary through parallels...

Have you tried 'Reading Eggs' ( google it ) it works off flash 10 so you need to have at least tiger OS
and you can purchase the cds / books / or pay the fee and work of the website itself
well worth looking at - oh and did I say that it looks like it is Australian too.

thanks coolcat. We'll have a look at it. For some reason I was expecting more around the place: the Apple online store has only six paying ones, so it seems to quite limited.

yep, thanks for that. That's where I got the figure 6 from on my post above: limit your link to primary and you got this many

not much, but as you say, a good place to start looking...
