Baby Safe is an interactive program that provides a safe environment for your baby to play with the computer, while at the same time preventing your baby from causing chaos on your computer.

Once you run Baby Safe II, it displays basic geometric shapes, the alphabet, numbers and pictures as the baby or toddler hits the keyboard or uses the mouse. Sounds are also used to teach the alphabet and the numbers. While Baby Safe II is active your work is safe and your baby can have some fun and learn a little bit.

Freezes and hangs more often than it works. It's supposed to be compatible with Tiger, and it does work. But hangs, sometimes even before any keys are pressed. When it works normally, and too many keys are pressed, it freezes. It gets so locked up force quit doesn't work. I have to use the power button, and this has happened at least five times during the demo period. Not a good thing. I tried it on two computers, but it was the same each time.

Otherwise, it's not my favorite app but my little one really likes it. He laughs constantly when he plays. (Until it locks up, then he gets pretty upset.) Twenty dollars is too much for this app in my opinion, even if it worked properly. But my toddler likes it so much I probably would buy it. There is no chance I'm going to pay twenty dollars for an app that doesn't work. Hopefully the developer is still working on this project, because it definitely appeals to the pre-preschool set.

Baby Safe is an interactive program that provides a safe environment for your baby to play with the computer, while at the same time preventing your baby from causing chaos on your computer.

Once you run Baby Safe II, it displays basic geometric shapes, the alphabet, numbers and pictures as the baby or toddler hits the keyboard or uses the mouse. Sounds are also used to teach the alphabet and the numbers. While Baby Safe II is active your work is safe and your baby can have some fun and learn a little bit.

Baby Safe II uses the whole screen, and it prevents application switching, the Dock and the menu bar from appearing. The power key is also disabled while Baby Safe II is running so there is no way to get out of the program until you type a special word. Babies (and cats I am told) are therefore free to play around on the computer.
