“Games aimed at kids are nothing new. Popular child licenses like Dora the Explorer and Sesame Street have been attached to PC games for years, but even those games have required some sort of mouse skills on the part of the child, or a patient parent to sit with them throughout the game. But what about the younger kids, the ones who don’t yet have the motor skills to use a mouse, but want to interact with the computer like they see their parents or older siblings doing?”
“Games for younger children (think under 18 months) are hard to come by online. There’s a few floating around out there, but usually it’s one game amongst a sea of older-aged games. Knee Bouncers is a one stop shop for bouncing, giggling, wiggling and most of all fun for all — with extra emphasis on the tiny tots!” Read more:

“KneeBouncers.com offers a host of whimsical flash mini games that can be played by simply mashing any button on the keyboard—coincidentally, I still use this approach inStreet Fighter and Devil May Cry games. In “Wake Up Sammy,” your child can rouse a little green cartoon monkey from a deep sleep by pressing the keyboard repeatedly. Hitting keys in “Music-Maker” simulates the plucking of “Mary Had A Little Lamb” on a bright purple guitar (you can also select drums or piano, depending on your instrument preference). Even an infant can appreciate the delight that comes when you realize the connection between your keystrokes and the action spilling off the screen.” Read more:
