Kid Themes

Recommendations

Friday, December 5, 2008 by ChrisZero | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

Hi everyone, I'm setting up a laptop for use with my kids, 7 year old boy and 6 year old girl. I'm teaching them how to use computers and would like to setup profiles for each but cannot find good 'kid' themes. Something with big icons, bright 'toon' colors, easy to use. Can anyone recommend something? Thank you!
