Review by MisterLopez

We like it a lot! - My son, 6, is really into computers and it is hard to get him off the computer. So, at least with Mia, there are great educational activities and I feel he is not wasting his time. He has some problems in school and his teacher had recommended this program. He has to pay attention to progress in the game, which I think is a good for him. I had to show him how to access the F key functions, maybe the developer should make this easier but otherwise I'm very pleased with this really cute mouse!

Review by Karen KIB

Not that great - This app is not worth the money. There is no way to turn off this app. I have to do a forced shut down every time I want to quit this app. It would be an OK app if they could fix this problem. Also, it is not as challenging as I hoped it would be. I am trying to get a refund.
