A relative who is five and a bit is getting a computer for Christmass. Can anyone please reccommend good software that is suitable for that age. Ideally the aim should be fun and learning? The O/S is XP Home and Celeron 2.4G.
I'm far more into office apps etc. I do not want to waste money on poor software. There is plenty of dross around and I've learnt to value other people's experiences. Thanks in anticipation.
Thanks for the suggestion. I must admit that I am wary of freeware as there is often a hidden price to pay. For myself this is no problem but the mather of the child is a PC novice and is not aware of the potential problems or solutions.
Not sure if its still around but the Reader Rabbit series (maths in particular) would keep my youngster hooked for ages. The general idea is that you get to build a pirate ship and the more correct answers you get the more bits of the ship you get.
The situation is that I persuaded my parents ( in their 70's) to upgrade their budget from £250 and I would chip in the rest. After the purchase they refused my contribution. I want to compensate by providing a good software bundle. I feel morally obliged to bo this. The cash cost is, where I am concerned, of minor importance.
