Available in four designs (Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Doraemon and — aargh! — Tamagotchi, the sticks contain a secure internet browser (Yahoo! Kids), a couple of games, and you can even limit the amount of time your little darlings spend attached to their computer. My suggestion? Buy them an OLPC and keep them well away from your notebook.

Why not just set up a USB flash drive with some portable apps for the kids to use?

Even without portable apps, if you install their kids programs to the USB drive instead of the hard drive the program STILL won't work without the drive inserted.

Once established, they'll know that "Their stuff" resides on the drive, and not on the main machine, allowing for controls to be set by the parent.
