Found 10th Apr 2010
does anyone know any good childrens software for the computer please? To suit a 9 year old girl, ideally to teach computer skills, maths, spelling, and maybe geography / history.
I'm not really looking for online things at the moment, would rather she got the hang of it offline first.

i used to find zoombinis fun =)

The "PC Play & Learn" series is good. Might be a bit too young for your LO though.

Microsoft encarta is pretty good imo

You would probably be best going through Amazon and reading reviews, OP.
I would rather have some software too because I dont like letting my 2 lose on the web, but I havent founf any software I would particularly recommmend.

My 2 quite liked SpongeBob Squarepants typing tutor, which as the name suggests, teaches typing skills - worth buying if you can get it cheap enough ( or download :whistling:)

My daughters eligible for this but I got her a better spec laptop from a different site and saved £20, which is why I'm looking to get her some software
