I love vintage kids books. I love vintage pop culture books. I also love vintage books looking at early computing technology. This week, I get all three wrapped into one. Being a tech guy and a pop culture guy sure pays off some days.

Fred D'Ignazio is a computer enthusiast and author of several books on computers for young people. As the father of two young children, Fred has become concerned with introducing the computer to children as a wonderful tool rather than as a forbidding electronic device. This month we're going to take a look at three computer products for children, all associated with the Muppets, that lovable gang of characters invented by Jim Henson and Associates in New York. The first product we'll examine is the Muppet Learning Keys, codeveloped by Christopher Cerf of Henson Associates, Koala Technologies which makes the popular KoalaPad , and Sunburst Software, one of the foremost educational software publishers. Muppet Learning Keys is intended for children age three and up.
The lowest-priced item in unused and unworn condition with absolutely no signs of wear. The item may be missing the original packaging such as the original box or bag or tags or in the original packaging but not sealed. The item may be a factory second or a new, unused item with defects or irregularities. See details for description of any imperfections. An interesting and informative read for kids and adults I'd say kids who are at least 8. I was surprised that the book wasn't just fluff, but contained actual historical facts and explained in layman's terms the technical workings of computers from the first computers to present day and speculated about the future capabilities of computers.
