Need more elementary
I would like this program to have a more elementary section. It is too advanced for my 6 year old and he needs to learn keyboarding.

I learned to type with Mavis Beacon years ago and am an excellent typist! Also, my 11 year old daughter did almost 200 lessons on a free generic program I found on the internet and she doesn't type like she's had 200 lessons!

Kari F on Apr 19, 2018
My 7 year old daughter wanted to learn how to type. I remember using Mavis Beacon program in high school while taking a computer class. I remember how exciting and effective the program so I definitely knew I would be purchasing a Mavis Beacon product. I didn't know there was a kids edition until I googled "kids programs for typing". We cant wait to get the product and try it out! :)

Help my daughter get more comfortable with the computer and keyboarding. Look fun for a pre-teen
Nicole F on Dec 15, 2017
cheapest site and still secure to purchase on
Hennie S on Sep 30, 2017
I chose this program as it seems a good fit for a an older preteen or a young teen. It isn't babyish but isn't as boring as adult typing programs either.
Valerie T on Sep 27, 2017
Looks like a fun way to teach keyboarding

My son is having some problems with keyboarding and I thought this would be fun and educational
Judith G on Jul 20, 2017
The adult version, at $9.99, worked well in teaching me, an adult, how to keyboard - at a bit over $7,the kiddie version, I imagine will accomplish the same with my 9 year old!
Donna A on Mar 3, 2017
Learned how to type from Mavis Beacon, years ago. It was great! After reading reviews, wanted to start our 8 year-old in learning the keyboard, and this one was recommended.

Will this work with Windows 10?
User on Apr 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have Windows 10 and it works with mine. I'm pretty sure when they say you need Windows 7 it means you need at least Windows 7 (nothing older than that) but anything newer will work as well.
Do I need to have a cd drive?
A shopper on Dec 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you need to insert the disk in order to install it on your computer.
Does installation require internet access? I will be installing on standalone computer in Haiti.
A shopper on Oct 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It did not require internet. Many newer computers and laptops do not have a cd/dvd drive though. You need the cd to install. There is support via a website, but we’ve not needed that.
Can you install this program on more than one computer?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’ve installed it on 2 different computers. Our first schoolroom computer died, so I installed it on the new one.
How many students can be on one subscription? I have 4 students.
A shopper on Jul 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The initial screen where you input the students' names like it could hold 10+ names. I couldn't find it written anywhere in the program as to how many can be on one subscription. I believe you'd be OK with 4, we've got two entered.
It's a great program, I learned from an adult version years ago, so was pleased to see a version for children. We got it f for our son. He enjoys the games (of course!) which are a nice break from just looking at a screen with words. The price is very good!
I highly recommend this program.
How long does this course usually take?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We haven't finished it yet. Try to work it in when we have "free time"!. I think it depends on diligence and ability. We started this with our 8 year-old son. He is working his way through, but at his pace. The games are good and he enjoys those, they help reinforce learning. It also depends on how diligent the parent will be in making time during the day. 10-15 minutes was what our son could do in one sitting. Hope this helps.
Can I use this for more than one student?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: yes. I have both of my boys on a separate profile on the software
Can it be used with Windows 10?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It worked just fine with my Windows 10 OS. We have not encountered any issues
