We are setting up to try this out right now. It will take a good couple of days to learn this, I imagine, but we all really have to be familiar with it before we let our little Sunny Rose have a go ...... it will likely only take her an hour or so to become scary-proficient, and we dare not let her loose in the software until we at least know what each button does. Otherwise, I would probably use this as an outlet for older siblings, and as a way for siblings to share a creative computer moment together. Let me know how you made out with this, too! You can email pictures of your creations, and I will post them here.
