I loved Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing when I was growing up.
Yes, I was (am) a huge dork, but it’s something I’ve come to embrace. I had the kids version, and typing words correctly made little Mavis do things like clean her room, make soup, and tend the lawn. Her Grandma never did ANYTHING, except apparently hover above her four-poster bed. Creepy, Grandma…creepy. Side note: I was way better at the game than the person who took that screenshot. And if you click it, you can buy the game for only $14.95, but be forewarned that it is not compatible with Windows XP, or even Vista. So just double check that you’re running a fully updated version of Windows 3.1, 95/98 or Me before checking out.
