Question Is there a good web site for children's software?

Just wondering if there is a good site or sites that show software ( childrens or anything else )made for Macs . I have a few now that are PC/ Mac for when my kids were younger but now I would like to get something that is geared for 10 year olds. Coincidently I'm making the Switch Saturday.

Pangea software should do the trick. I'm not exactly sure of the website, but a quick google search will turn it up.

An indirect answer: Radiocanada.ca has a very good kids' zone (both edu and games), so has Children's BBC (www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc). I have given up with kids software: they use a browser or the gamecube. I have also created an account for each of them and switched on iTunes sharing across all accounts.

I was thinking of the game cube way as well (2 player option to stop the fighting). Most of the games I have are about 10 years old ie: Reader Rabbit and such. Has anyone tried the Bumpercar Browser by Freeverse?

You may want to take a look at http://www.makienterprise.com/ for some software solutions to make the internet a safer and more appropriate place for them. While I'm all for open and honest relationships when it comes to children and computer use, it's the twisted people on the other end that can be the problem.
