Babies love touching the computer keyboard--now you can let them! Each curious key press entertains your baby with delightful animations and cute loveable animated characters. There are 14 adorable key-tapping activities for you and baby to explore! The top 10 main activities include:

  • My Animal Friends: Large centered image of each animal that changes on key tap. Similar to "Big Shapes" from the Shapes title. Mouse click makes flopsy blow bubbles.
  • Little Quackers: Key taps make the ducks quack and flap their wings as they swim along. Mouse click makes turtle go in and out of his shell.
  • Nite Lites: Adorable fireflies light up with each key tap. Mouse click turns lantern lights on and off.
  • Fishy Fun: Key taps make swimming fishies blow bubbles and the puffer fish puff up. Mouse clicks make cute crabs on the bottom scamper along.
  • Groundhog Day: Key taps make silly groundhogs pop up out of their holes. Mouse clicks make flower petals fly off flowers.
  • Flopsy's Pet Shop: Key taps wake up one of the animals in the shop window and make them jump into the air. Mouse clicks make mice run across the bottom of the screen.
  • Raining Cats and Dogs: Key taps make actual cats and dogs drop out of the clouds at the top of the screen--adorable! Mouse clicks make real rain fall out of the clouds--cool!
  • Bunny Boom: Key taps makes cute bunnies duplicate all over the screen. Mouse movement of the magic wand over a bunny makes it disappear with a "poof".
  • Monkey Mania: Key taps make monkeys "ooh-ahhh-ahhh" and throw a banana. Mouse clicks make bananas fall from the bunches at the top of the screen.
  • Penguin Playground: Key taps make penguins slide down ice slides, jump and flip, or fly into the air. Mouse clicks make little fishies jump out of the water below.
There are four additional bonus activities, making a total of 14 activities in My Animal Friends. The first three bonus activities are our new Scroller Activities. Scroll along left to right as if you were taking a walk through our fun-filled zoo, hilarious farm, and wild safari. You know how to do it--just tap the keys! See the tiger dance, the pandas enjoying ice cream cones, the seals playing with a ball, and much more. You can even take snapshots of the action by clicking the mouse button. As in our first title, Shapes, the fourth bonus activity in this title is a music video and it's all about animals. You and baby can tap the keys or click the mouse along with.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Software has all the 5 Stars and More! August 9, 2006
Color Name:Shapes
My daughter is little over three years old and I had bought this software about a year ago directly from the founder of Giggles, since he lives in the Rochester, NY area. At first I was worried that the software is for babies and my toddler may not be interested. Not so! She loves the program even more now. Her knowledge of shapes and use of computers impresses even her teachers at the day-care.

I know for a fact that much research and hard-work had gone into the development of this software and it shows mightily; especially when compared to other products of similar genre.

I can't wait for the new products Giggles Software is developing.

5.0 out of 5 stars My baby boy loves Giggles! November 15, 2006
Color Name:Animal Friends
I purchased both Giggles Shapes and Giggles Animals for my 5 month old boy after I noticed I could not get on my home computer or my laptop with him wanting to hit the keys.

This program is very entertaining and teaches babies cause and effect, and has a good music selection that my baby likes.

I would highly recommend this program to any parent that has a child from 3 months to 2yrs.

My 9 year old boy even enjoys playing with these programs!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun program, but needs updating for OS X July 30, 2007
Color Name:Animal Friends
This program is lots of fun for a baby. It runs a little slowly on our 700 MHz G4 eMac, but our baby loves it. The only critique, though, is that it won't run on a limited account in OS X. The companion game, 123 & ABCs will let me set up the baby's account to allow me to add it to her account's limits list, but the Animal Friends does not. As a result, either I cannot run it on her account, or I have to allow administrator privileges to her account. I cannot do that since her sister also uses the computer.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Fun... November 22, 2009
By Pri
Color Name:123/ABC|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my nephew because he loves playing on the computer; however, in the process of playing on the computer, some files and programs were deleted or damaged. This computer program/game has been wonderful for him. It locks out the computer so he can have fun and his parents don't worry about the computer system messing up. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product! September 19, 2007
Color Name:123/ABC
This software is awesome! It is great for babies and toddlers that are just learning cause and effect. This is a favorite pastime for my special needs daughter who is cognitively at toddler age. Beautiful colors and moves as quickly as her fingers do on the keyboard! You'll love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good interactive software February 15, 2008
Color Name:Animal Friends
Overall I think this is a pretty good piece of software since my 16 month old enjoys banging on the keys. This responds to exactly that with several different interactive "games". The only problem is that I don't have speakers by the monitor so every time he hits a key he will look at the computer on the floor because that is where the sound is coming from. My four year old likes to play with this software with his little brother for a little while but gets bored with its redundancy after a few minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game but.... April 7, 2008
Color Name:Animal Friends
I had great difficulty in installing this game on my computer. I eventually had to go on-line and download a patch from Giggles for VISTA users. Still my daughter (twenty months old) loves this game. It is very educational and entertaining. She enjoys this game so much that I have odered Giggles "ABC's and 1,2,3's." Hopefully, I will not have as painful a time installing this Giggles game.

It does not work with just any keyboard. You have to use a plain and simple keyboard to keep from having interruptions when baby taps keys. I bought one for $10. Read more
