Typing Tots starts kids along the path of learning how to type. It is used in schools throughout the United States to introduce youngsters to their computer keyboards.
Children need to learn how to type, and before they learn how to do that, they need to learn how to hunt and peck, and they need to have fun doing it.
Typing Tots has a visually simple and uncomplicated format. It gives kids a chance to hunt and peck their way to finding letters, words, and short sentences on their keyboards. Typing Tots will time them as they type 20 letters, or 20 words, or 20 short sentences.
After a few weeks with Typing Tots, kids will enjoy their keyboards, be familiar with the location of letters on the keyboard, and be ready to move on to typing with more than one or two fingers.
Updates graphics, refines code, adds features.

could be better
I was hoping for more teaching. This program shows either a character, word, or sentence - then leaves the kids to hunt and peck for buttons. And you need the mouse to click a circle that checks your work. So type one letter, then click OK.
gets kids interested in basic keyboard locations
The newer version made some effective changes in graphics and speed of response. The low key approach works well with 1st through 3rd grde kids: no pressure, just relaxed visual fun and basic typing practice with simple keyboard strokes.
refreshingly simple and easy for kids to use
Typing Tots is exactly what it says it is. That’s a welcome relief from some of the other typing programs for kids that are filled with advertising, complicated routines, and irrelevant game oriented graphics, sounds, and distractions. Thanks.
