The Disney Netbook by ASUS also includes a driving game, memory game and photo scrapbook.

Robust Parental Control Features
Parents can set up accounts for each child in the house, determine which programs they can access and the time of day in which they can access. Parents also control the email address book with their password so kids can only send emails to and receive emails from contacts approved by mom and dad. Websites are surfed through the favorites list which mum and dad also control. There is no editable URL address bar so kids cannot access content not approved by their parents.

Durable, Kid-friendly Design

The Disney Netbook by ASUS has a reinforced mechanical design that can withstand significant abuse, a spill-proof keyboard that protects against liquid spills, and ShockShield Data Protection that guards against data loss when the computer is subjected to impacts. It also has a stable embedded polymer battery, which is safer as it prevents kids from inadvertently accessing or removing the battery.
