G'day,

Someone here recently recommended "Baby Bop", a little app that lets your child play with the keyboard and mouse, making pretty patterns with sound effects etc...

Well, I was wondering if there was anything along the lines of a music program, suitable for an 18month old...? Something that turns your keyboard into a musical instrument... ?

(And yeah I'm sure there's plenty of professional muso apps around... but I'm more after something that is suitable for this age group...)

Can't afford music classes, but Jimhobo loves his $25 drum kit from Toys'R'Us, and so was hoping to get something else musical for him...

Thanks

cosmic

Maybe not exactly what you are looking for, but good fun and dead easy.

That's interesting, works okay for me and my set-up is nothing special.

What do you see when you open the page?

I updated flash, and it works now. (Thought I was already running the latest)

Fun program! Quite clever and yet simple. Though too much for my son... will have to bookmark it though for later.
