FunKey Keyboard and Mouse

I was extremely excited to have the opportunity to review the  FunKey Bundle from Chester Creek.  The keyboard and pint size mouse were packaged securely for shipping and I was very impressed to have them arrive on my door. I was equally impressed with the speed of the delivery.

When I opened the package the kids all got excited to see the surprise that was waiting for them. The first thing that struck me (after how it was packaged) was how bright and colorful the keyboard and mouse are. It was very attractive and inviting to the kids and they all gathered around to try to get a look as I opened it.

My autistic son fell in love with it right away and couldn’t wait for us to get it all set up. Elisha was able to type more fluently with this keyboard than with our traditional keyboard due to the color coding of the keys.

All the kids liked the fact that the mouse was small enough to fit their hands.

While we were happy with the keyboard and mouse and we have enjoyed using them, there were two things that we didn’t like:

  1. The yellow keys had white print on them making them difficult to read.
  2. The keyboard sits flat on the table and doesn’t have those tabs to prop it up.

Overall, we have been very happy with our experiences with this keyboard.
