Comfy Keyboard NG

Your Pride, Their Joy

Your toddler can now learn through play on the home PC.

The Comfy Easy PC System creates a rich and exciting multimedia world for your toddler (ages 1 to 5), in which he/she can play and interact with the lovable Comfy characters.

With Comfy, your toddler will play many activities that are not only fun, but educational and developmental as well. Playing with the Easy PC system gives young children the opportunity to explore a dynamic, colorful, and interactive environment - without requiring parental assistance.

The Easy PC System has been designed with toddlers in mind, and fits their motor and cognitive skills. The System allows young children to enjoy and learn from various activities, without requiring reading skills or the ability to use a computer mouse. Children progress at their own pace according to their own level, interest and growth.

The Comfy Easy PC System includes the Easy PC keyboard and First Steps software. The Easy PC keyboard is the platform required to enjoy all of our software titles.
First Steps
"First Steps"
is the first computer game CD created especially for toddlers (as early as 12 months) that enables children an independent computer experience and first exposure to basic concepts. The Comfy Keyboard comes with the First Steps software only.

All activities in "First Steps" have been specially designed with the guidance of child psychologists, educational experts and parents, in order to suit the abilities and needs of the child for age-appropriate learning. "First Steps" is a great way to introduce toddlers to shapes, sounds and colors through fun interactive experiences.

5 Years of Growth

3C: Curiosity, Challange, Confidence

All Comfy content has been developed based on the "3C Developmental Cycle", created by the Comfy Pedagogial House (CPH):

According to The 3C Developmental cycle, providing toddlers with rich content will stimulate and challenge their natural born curiosity. The specially designed keyboard enables the child to be in full control, mastering activities as the plot evolves, thereby improving his sense of self confidence. The 3C Developmental Cycle is processed over and over again as the child progresses further in the story.

Included in the Easy PC keyboard package is our first software title, "First Steps", which is designed for 1-3 year old beginners. The whole line of software is then available (each designed for a certain age and level, and based on a different topic), allowing you to choose software according to your child's level and interest. Our software for ages 1-3 in the beginners and intermediate levels include an internal sub-division for different interactivity levels, allowing the child to progress within the same software over time.

As each child grows and develops at a different pace, it is likely that a younger child may enjoy a more difficult level, or vice-versa. We strongly recommend letting children progress at their own pace. Some of the software  titles include a few sub-levels of difficulty, allowing the child to progress within the same title over time.

Add-on CDs are available below. *

The Comfy software (the First Steps CD and the add-on software below) can be played with many of the following languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, Dutch, Hebrew, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Japanese, Turkish, Korean, Polish, Romanian, and Russian. This amazing feature allows the child to reinforce his primary language as well as learn new languages. (See Languages.)

Playing in Comfy’s interactive environment will provide your child with the following:

  • Learning through play and exploration.
  • Acquiring basic computer skills.
  • Developing motor and sensory, language, cognitive, emotional, and social skills.

The following qualities make Comfy's approach unique and well suited to attaining its educational goals:

  • The activities are an interactive combination of stories, animated movies, viewing pictures and color painting, hearing music and singing songs, motor activities and exposure to social concepts.
  • The Comfy Keyboard replaces the standard keyboard and mouse. Each key is colorful and easy to use. No reading or writing skills are required.
  • Comfy activities are age-appropriate and the characters and objects participating in the story are amiable and amusing.
  • Once the level is adapted to your child's learning stage of development and the activity begins, your child can play without parental assistance. The computer characters talk to your child and explain what to do at every stage in the activity. Each explanation is accompanied by a variety of illustrated graphics and animations.

Motor and Sensory Skills

As children grow, their physical and mental skills develop, enabling them to perform more complex tasks. Your child learns to identify objects and characters, correctly interpret stimuli from immediate surroundings and develop the senses.

When playing with Comfy, your child learns to:

  • Correlate between the objects and characters he or she sees on the screen with those on the Comfy Keyboard.
  • Improve visual perception by distinguishing between different shapes and colors.
  • Improve hearing perception.

Language Skills

Children's vocabulary is constantly expanding as they learn to construct sentences.

With Comfy, your child can:

  • Learn how to phrase questions, requests, warnings and instructional sentences.
  • Gain knowledge of new concepts pertaining to specific topics such as the weather, mail and time.

Thinking Skills

Children's memory capacity is gradually enhanced enabling them to remember more and more pictures, voices and experiences. In addition, their imagination develops and improves their creative thinking skills.

Playing with Comfy can help your child to:

  • Enhance understanding of cause and effect relationships by allowing the child to intervene in an evolving story and cause changes to take place (e.g., make it rain, change day to night).
  • Practice remembering objects, sounds, voices, events and characters throughout an activity.
  • Develop his/her imagination by participating in the story's plot and influencing it as desired while enhancing creative skills.
  • Participate in "make-believe play" with characters to learn from them about the real world they live in.
  • Learn to concentrate and apply mental effort by performing challenging tasks.

Get better acquianted with the main characters in Comfyland to learn more about their intriguing personalities. Who's your child's favorite character?

Main Characters:

Comfy: Comfy is an average, happy and friendly boy of about six years of age. Being the only human figure, kids tend to sympathize with him the most. With his red hair and sparkling eyes, what he loves most is to hang around with his best friends from Comfyland.

Jumpy: Jumpy is a mischievous, agile little dog. He is the only Comfyland character who isn't very kindhearted. He likes to play pranks and fool around. He lets himself get away with more than the others do, he's short-tempered when he asks the children to do something and when he's angry, he lets everyone know it. Jumpy likes to spend his time in the garden, caring for the flowers and vegetable beds.

Feely: Feely the elephant is full-bodied and jolly, and therefore appears warm and affectionate. When she hugs someone, it is not in pretense, but with genuine feeling, since she really is fond of everyone. In short, all who come to her will find an attentive and sympathetic ear. A painter by profession, she is a true artist at heart, and as such tends to be somewhat melodramatic and absent-minded.

Snaily: Snaily the snail, the most diminutive character in Comfyland, is the youngest kid in the neighborhood. Being young, he is also naive, easily frightened and sweet. He is also bashful and innocent. Whenever he's frightened or embarrassed, he shrinks into his shell. This shell also serves as a neverending storehouse of odds and ends. Snaily works as a mailman, where his characteristics suit him for this job: he is a hard worker and punctual, even though time is never on his side.

Buddy: Buddy the Bear is the blockhead of the bunch, full of scholarly wisdom that he often uses where common sense and intuition would be more appropriate. Buddy thinks of himself as the smartest of the gang, to whom all should turn for advice and whose counsel all should heed. Feely is the only one that Buddy doesn't patronize because he admires her inventiveness and creativity. Buddy is characteristically arrogant and clumsy.

Other Characters:

Didi: It's easy to make friends with Didi. She's a sweet, fun-loving three-year-old who's busy discovering the world around her.

Yoki: Didi's pet kitten is a naive, playful little ball of fur. In his spirited romping and frolicking, he sometimes knocks things over.

Oops: There's a clown in every gang, and Oops is it. A comic and an acrobat, Oops plays tricks, climbs, swings, juggles, plays musical instruments, tells jokes and simply acts silly.

Boo: Representing the impulsive, impetuous side of every toddler, this perky little imp flits around looking for mischief. You'll forgive him, though - he never goes too far.

Betty: Don't let her sad basset hound eyes fool you. Betty is everyone's best friend. Motherly and warm, she's thoroughly devoted to Didi. And although she's no comedienne, the things that happen to her will make you laugh.

I never thought that Danielle, my 4 year old girl, would be so enthusiastic to learn about Dinosaurs. I thought it was more a "boyish" interest... I was probably wrong... She discovered a whole new world and is so curious now to discover more. Thank you for opening up this part in history for her and for me ;-).

Description:

The Baby Keyboard has been improved! Three new CD-ROMs with upgraded games software designed for young children to share unique moments with their parents while having fun discovering the world of computers. The Baby Keyboard and its age-graded CD Roms are a major innovation to introduce young children safely to multimedia technology and computers. The Baby Keyboard is easy to install. It simply fits over a standard PC keyboard (will not work on a laptop keyboard) with no programming or leads to connect.

Come and Join Nax and Oyo the Frog with this wonderful new media product, the Baby Keyboard, from Berchet. Intended for use with very young children, (the manufacturer recommends 12-36 months, but it can be used very well with older siblings too) it has been produced with input from professional toy makers and multimedia specialists, and introduces the fascinating world of computers.
 
Intended for use under parental supervision, the package is accompanied by an excellent illustrated pamphlet, which should be read completely before use. It is written in simple, straightforward language and is easy to understand. Especially useful are the little tips to prevent errors, with explanations on what to do if, indeed, they do occur.
 
The learning aid consists of a brightly colored, robust and child-friendly plastic keyboard (which is easy to set up over a conventional keyboard) with 10 large colorful and attractive keys, which are designed to make young children aware of the cause-and-effect relationship between the keyboard and what happens on screen. This is done by playing games. Particularly useful is a key called the "Family Key," which, when pressed, gives information regarding descriptions of games, suggestions for playing it and some ideas for further play.

HINT -- Here is a hint to fend off tears when time to stop playing. The little dog will call baby to say goodbye when the time set for play has elapsed. The parent is able to dictate the length of play without the child's knowledge, in increments of 5 minutes, and is a way of stopping the game without upsetting the child.


Accompanying the keyboard are three CD-ROMs with 15 educational activities, which are very easy to install. The first enables young players to discover shapes and colors each time a key is pressed, and there are games for each of the 5 colored keys. The second CD is slightly more difficult and enables your toddlers to use animals and familiar objects to recognize sounds and express emotions. The last CD is aimed at the older age range, and therefore the games are more complex. Use of the mouse is introduced as a compliment to the keyboard, but clicking, as yet, is not necessary. This is an excellent product that has been well thought out in every aspect -- it really does make learning fun!
