Another education for me. If I carry on at this rate my brain will reach genius level. Seriously folks, this isn't very funny. Boring display, pricey and familiar.

You have a choice of three sections: 0 to 9 display, numbers display and games.

This is designed for children who are learning to recognise numbers, but I find it difficult to understand how they will be able to use a computer keyboard.

The 0 to 9 display simply draws out each number from 0 to 9 along with a picture. Very monotonous even for a four-year-old.

In the number display, the child picks a number which is displayed.

You have a choice of three games - number, picture and hard number game! You must hit the key corresponding with the number or picture on the screen.

In today's difficult market, I can't see how a piece of educational software of this standard can sell for £6. I'm no expect but if the standards are as high as for games then this program can't possibly sell.
