Crayola colours keyboard... you know... for kids
Crayon crafter Crayola has created a colourful keyboard designed to prepare kids for a lifetime spent mindlessly tapping numbers and text into computers.
Crayola's USB EZ Type Keyboard
Each of the USB EZ Type Keyboard’s numerical keys is painted orange, while the Qwerty key arrangement is a sickly lime green.
Special-function keys, such as Ctrl and Enter are a sort of sky blue, and there’s the usual crayon box mixture of red and pink thrown across other buttons too.
The keyboard’s compatible with most versions of Windows, including XP and Vista, in addition to Mac OS X 10.1 and later. A USB port’s included too for a mouse.
Crayola’s USB EZ Type Keyboard is only recommended for ages three and up, so it could also be a great way to liven up a dull office. It’s available online for £17 ($31/€21), but stocks are currently sold out.
crayola off message
My daughter would love it BUT the keys have all capital letters. 3+ yr olds are supposed to be taught using lower case letters.
where are all the |, &, etc keys?
Reminds me of...
...that late 80s(?) Amstrad range of home electricals (not computers) that used coloured buttons and their USP was that they were - supposedly - particularly easy to use.
So not the CPC464 et al, but it used a similar logic.
Surely even small children will be offended by COMIC BLOODY SANS?!
It matches the default theme of Windows XP at least.
Not Vista compliant!
It has no Windows Bubble key and so cannot be Vista compliant - therefore it cannot be shipped with a Vista system by PC builders :-(
