LeapFrog joins ranks of childhood computing

LeapFrog My First Computer

Education specialist LeapFrog has released the ClickStart My First Computer, an attempt at bridging simpler electronic teaching tools with more mature computing. The heart of the system is a console that plugs into a TV, and operates using cartridges for each program: four included programs include Letters, Counting, Animal Facts and Phonics Skills. Unlike other such systems however, the ClickStart comes with a wireless, paired-down QWERTY keyboard, and even a mouse that can be converted for left- or right-hand control. The console is now selling for $60, with a separate, character-branded cartridge library costing $20.
