If software is a better option for you than a download, this is a good option for keyboarding instruction on a Windows computer. It works on a Windows 7, 8 or 10 system and installation instructions are printed on the disc. A unique activation code is on the paper sleeve. As kids master a skill, they move to the next level. The tasks look like a fun video game to play! ~Sara
The exciting way for kids to learn to type!
Kids learn to type on an exciting adventure with Mickey Mouse and Friends, or on Typer Island with Toby and his feathered side-kick Lafitte.

Children today tend to be more technologically savvy than their parents and even older siblings. Yet the importance of learning the foundational skills remains. This engaging typing program has been uniquely created for young typists. Through the charm of various Disney characters, children are taught to use their "magical typing skills" to reach the palace. Whether freeing the Princess from the hedge that has engulfed her to the typing games found at the Palace Faire, children will be motivated to learn the typing skills necessary as the delightful, enchanting stories unfold. Children will practice their typing skills through various Disney stories including Pinocchio, Tangled, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Snow White and the Severn Dwarfs, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, Princess and the Frog, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin.
The CD-ROM provides ten typing courses to reach all skill levels, visual hand guides, progress reports and hundreds of lessons and challenges. Your children may beg you to play Mickey's typing adventure (shhh, the educational value secret is safe with me!).
