Kids' Keyboard and Mouse from Aldi

Yorkshire Blog, Mummy Blogging, Parent Blog, Aldi, Kids' Keyboard and Mouse, Review,

Our computer doesn't get used that often. I use the laptop and so the PC just sits upstairs. The only time it actually gets used is when my nieces and nephews come round to play. I don't like them using my laptop as it has all of my blog stuff on it and I'd cry if they deleted anything, so instead they use the computer. 

They are still young so I don't let them go online or anything. Our modem is downstairs and is wireless so I turn it off so that they cannot get online. They instead use the computer for playing games and doing homework. 

I don't mind looking after them and actually love helping them to learn about the computer and typing. My admin and typist background comes in to play here as it means that I can teach them about the ways to type etc. Trying to teach younger children can be hard though as our keyboard is just a plain old Qwerty keyboard and if you don't know where all the keys are, it can be hard to work out.

Aldi have sent us this lovely Keyboard and Mouse set which is to help children learn about typing. 

All of the keys are colour coded so that numbers, letters, symbols and other keys are separated to make learning easier. Vowels are also a different colour to the consonants which is a great idea as it means that they stand out and children can easily find each letter they need. The letters and numbers are in big writing too so that they stand out more. 

The mouse is liquid filled with what looks like a frog character inside and a smiley face on the buttons. 

I used to hate having to pull the computer out to match up the keyboard wire to where it fits in the back of the computer but luckily with this one, it is connected to the computer via USB port so is simple to fit. 

Overall, I think this keyboard and mouse are a great idea. Not only will they help to teach children how to type and where everything is on the keyboard but they are also bright so will stand out to them too. 

The Kids' Keyboard and Mouse go in store on thr 28th November so make sure you get down their fast so you don't miss out!

  7. The children will benefit from you sharing your skills. Whilst the children' keyboard and mouse may encourage their interest and motivation etc.
