Product Description

Broderbund's The Amazing Writing Machine to the rescue! This creative writing and drawing software (CD-ROM for Win/Mac) is ideal for kids ages 6 through 12 (or older). Think of it as an idea-generating program. A gentle push, but sooo subtle and kind. Kids are encouraged to be creative as they can express their thoughts, ideas and opinions by using pre-designed page layout templates to write stories, letters, journals, poems and essays. The object, after all, is to have fun AND write! From the makers of Kid Pix Studio, the painting tools, Rubber Stamps and clip art are all an incredible blast of fresh air. Kids can decorate their writings with as many rubber stamps as they want. The best thing about this paint program is how easy and fun it is to use. Let the creativity flow! eight writing genres. Each area, such as Fantasy, Adventure, Romance and Mystery, comes with its own set of stamps and music. You can even use Swap Stamps in the Goodies menu to select other Rubber Stamps to use. The wacky sound effects make writing so much more fun. Splish-splashing paint cans, bubbling brushes and more. Click the Noisy Typing button and choose different sounds as you type: one sounds like a noisy, old-fashioned typewriter, another plays a different musical note as you hit each key (my favorite!), one option lets you play the drums as you type and still another plays western sounds. For those of us who'd rather have peace and quiet, select "Blessed Silence" and peace and quiet returns.
