This program is fun! Much better than KidPix in every way.
Large set of options for each of the 12 tools will keep kids (and grownups) occupied for hours. The 1,000 templates are contemporary. The stamp art is plenty of fun all by itself.
A simplified screen makes it suitable for really young kids, say about three, if you feel brave enough to let them near a computer.
Overall, this is an extremely well designed program that is much more than a "toy". It is a real paint program, with a really well done user interface that makes it easy for kids to dig in, be creative and have fun.
Crayola and Core are to be congratulated on their sensible licensing: you may install this on any number of computers as long as it is used on no more than one at a time.
For the price, you simply can't beat Crayola Art Studio. It is great fun and very versatile.
