Comments on KidCoaster

The Good
* Has very nice animations/graphics and sound effects which will appeal to children.
* Has five different categories of things for children to do: visit websites, watch "TV", play games, learn, and draw.
* Each category comes with many activities by default, so parents need not configure everything manually.
* Parents are allowed to add (or remove) custom entries to (or from) the websites, games, education, and drawing categories.
* Program can be password protected in multiple ways.

The Bad
* Tooltips in the program won't show properly.
* Not a very good tool for the purposes of "Parental Control".
* Parents can't add (or remove) channels to (or from) the "TV" category.

Doesn't seem to work except as a browser overlay. Pressing "Watch TV" made nothing change in the window. Nothing happened with "Games" or "Art."

It merely offers a batch of pre-selected kid websites like WB Kids or Sesame Street or Disney that take you to those websites within the browser overlay.

$24.95 for that? You've got to be kidding. I question it even for free.

It looks like it would be awesome for my 4 year olds. and the 8 year old would probably use it some too. I can only get the websites to come up on the screen though. When I click on the other buttons at the bottom of the screen (tv, games, etc.) the choices for the kids to click on do not change.
