Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing Platinum 20

We bought this for my 9 year old so he could learn to type. We had tried many different children’s typing programs first, but they were all bugging, incompatible, or didn’t really teach him anything. Both my husband and I have fond memories of early Mavis Beacon programs so we thought we’d give her a try with our son.

If he was just a few years older he might have stuck with it. The lessons are too bland to keep his attention for long. We’ll hold onto this program for when he gets older, but will keep looking for something more age appropriate that will get him using proper keyboarding technique.
