Mini Mouses (Mice)

[SmallMouseFilter]My sister has two adopted children, ages 3 and 1.5. The 3-year-old is quite adept with the mouse for their desktop PC, but struggles with the size of said mouse. I've looked around for smaller, kid-sized mice, but all of them are wired. The Google-Fu in this one is weak. Anyone have experience with a "mini" mouse that is also wireless?

Minor Miners

My seven year old daughter has fallen in love with Minecraft after watching a video review of the game with her mother. I've just started letting her play. She's in Peaceful mode. Building like crazy. She seems to be having a blast. Anything I should be aware of as she gets more involved? [more inside]

Do safe online games exist?

My almost 13 year old daughter is bored with Yoville, Farmville, and other FB games. We're in search of free online games that allow her to design an avatar, compete for virtual prizes, and have moderated opportunities for interaction. [more inside]

Educational Media

Can you recommend some great educational media for my nearly two year old daughter? I am looking for good DVD's, computer / iPhone software, or websites that I can load up for 30-60 minutes a day. I would like something she can learn from, but if she is having fun, that is cool as well. Right now she is a Dora and Diego addict. I just got her a few LeapFrog preschool DVD's that she loves. She can sing her ABC's and can count to 10 in English and Spanish. She is just starting to be able to answer "How does the letter A, B, C, etc. go?' She knows how to flip pages and push buttons on the iPhone. Are there any computer learning games that a two year old could handle. Flash games? iPhone games? Answers to this question do not involve telling me to take my daughter outside. I am familiar with the debunking of Baby Einstein. I would just like to find some good stuff for her to watch, play or interact with. General toy recommendations are good as well.

A computer for a four year old?

I have a four year old son who seems about ready to start using a computer, but I would like to keep him away from mine, so the obvious choice is to ask his grandparents to buy him one for his birthday... Any tips on specific systems and or accessories that might be age appropriate?
