My son loves to chat on the internet now that he has SurfMonkey monitors to help me watch the content of the chat rooms for kids. And he can send and receive email to his little hearts content, as long as the senders and receivers are on my passworded and ok list.

This browser makes it fun for kids and a little bit safer. They can even splat green slime on the screen of their favorite sites and fracture them to pieces. You have to set the security ratings for the web sites but that's a good thing. Also the SurfMonkey character itself is a Microsoft agent character and he does various things while you children surf he even reads their email out loud to them, I think this is good for 2nd graders to help them learn more words. I recommend a fast processor because of the MSAgent at least 133Mhz.
