If there’s a pint-sized gamer in your house who’s confounded by your Mac’s mouse and you’d like something more kid-friendly, United Developers subsidiary
latest venture is to distribute multi-button mice designed for younger computer users, branded “KidzMouse.”
The patented design has been created to be comfortable for the smaller hands of kids ages 2 to 10. The KidzMouse works with a squeeze rather than a tap. No software is required to get the USB-based mice working, either. They work with Mac OS X or Mac OS 9.1 or later, and you can have a KidzMouse connected while having another mouse on your Mac without any difficulty.
What’s more, KidzMouse designs are available in a variety of styles including characters from popular Nickelodeon TV shows: Blue’s Clues, Spongebob Squarepants and Rugrats ball-based mice are available, Optical mice featuring Elmo and Cookie Monster from Sesame Street are also an option. KidzMouse models are also available with original artwork like Mollymouse, Marinamouse, Benjibee and Coolbug, in either ball-based or optical versions.
