Have your kids used it? What do you think?
They have a free months trial. We are still in our free trial. I may keep it another few months or longer. It's only $8 a month (okay, $7.95 or something, but whatever LOL). My youngest (3 and a half) likes it and seems to be learning a lot from it, but she's not very good with the mouse so I have to do that part for her, which kind of stinks because there's parts where she's supposed to color in pictures and I have to do that for her. My 6 year old is in first grade and all she wants to do is buy stuff with her virtual tickets and play with her virtual pet hamster. It's okay though, most of the material she already knows from school, she's in the highest level of lessons available, so she won't be able to use it (to learn anyway) for much longer.
I haven't tried it, but I am thinking about it.
we tried the free stuff DS didn't care for it. I think the paid area is supposed to be better.
We did the free trial during the summer. My 6 year old dd liked it, but she's really too old for it.
My son liked it, but we have PBS kids right now and it seems a little better (more polished games).
My main problem with ABC mouse was that the lessons were incredibly basic, my son had fun with them but I can't claim he learned anything he didn't already know (and I had him operating above his grade level and it was STILL too easy. My kid's smart, but I won't say that's the reason - the lessons are designed for the lowest common denominator and that's great if your little one is just beginning to learn, and the games were fun for my son, but don't think that your kid will be ahead of the curve just from using ABC Mouse).
A tip though - if you sign up and like it you can cancel and then they send you an email special offer with a reduced price to rejoin, so you can save a few bucks every month if you don't mind playing the part of the uninterested consumer for a few weeks.
