KidzMouse Keys is a simplified keyboard featuring 67 essential keys, rather than the standard 104. Its touch typing-compatible keys have a special shape designed for little fingers, and groups of keys, such as the Return and arrow keys, are color coded to promote faster typing. It will be available this spring with a US$39.95 suggested retail price.
KidzMouse Ears are headphones that come in two sizes, one aimed at school labs and libraries and the other designed for home use, and sport an adjustable headband that grows with your child. The earpieces feature bug characters. The product is available now with pricing of $29.95 for the large headphones and $24.94 for the small ones.
The company will also add to the KidzMouse line of mice with Paloma Firefly, an optical mouse that lights up with a burst of colors, and an optical KidzMouse with a scroll wheel, which is aimed at pre-teen and teenage users. Both mice will be available in the spring; Paloma Firefly will carry a suggested price of $24.95 while the KidzMouse with scroll wheel will be $29.95.
