Encourage a Child's Creativity with the Kids Designer II Learning Graphics Tablet

If you’re the parent of a youngster under 10, as I am, chances are your child will invariably start experimenting with learning how to draw and later on learning to write. If you are as old as I am, you probably learned to draw on boring sheet planes of cellulose from dead trees with a yellow-orange cylinder containing an allotrope of carbon, though hearing it from my kids you’d think I was using reeds on wet clay tablets.  How interactive stylus technology has progressed since then!

Today, to assist in children’s intellectual and creative grow, peripherals designer Genius offers an interesting writing tablet tool to help guide and encourage budding content creators with its Kids Designer II Learning Graphics Tablet. By connecting the Kids Designer II to a PC via a USB port, children can interact with the computer and the included software to write, draw, paint and play games using the tablet and wireless stylus.

The specially developed game software helps inspire kids to accelerate their learning skills in colors, shape, math, thinking, etc. Now children can express what they think and create their imagination using the included game software. A series of fun games are also made for pure enjoyment and excitement.

If you’ve ever used a drawing tablet and pen to work with graphics programs, you undoubtedly discovered that drawing by pen can be vastly more precise and easy to use than bulkier mice, taking advantage of fine motor coordination skills. The Kids Designer II could be a useful tool to fire up a child’s interest in the realm of graphic design. Sporting 15 games of varying degrees of difficulty, from simple drawing tools to simple math, shapes, colors, geography  to name a few in addition to simple fun drawing and with a generous 5″ x 8″ work area and easy control buttons, the Kids Designer II could be a fine tool to help inspire creativity. Who knows, maybe your youngster might sketch up the Vitruvian Teddy Bear.

Reportedly available in U.S. and Canadian markets right now, the Kids Designer II has an MSRP of $64.99
