Shareware Programs
for Children


Many thanks to my husband, Alan Wong Siew Loon, for his personal review
of all the shareware listed below.

Shareware programs for children allow you to try a module of the program for a period of time (usually 30 days) for free. After the trial period, you can either pay a fee to register the shareware and receive the full program or delete the shareware from your computer.

Most shareware programs are compressed before storage as a single zip file on the host computer. After downloading the file, you need to use WINZIP to decompress it before you can view its contents and run the shareware. Some shareware programs need further installation or setup on the hard disk.

My shareware selection criteria are as follows:

  1. The file is not more than 1.4 MB.

    If you do not have a dedicated phone line for Internet access and you are using your one and only phone line, remember to disable the "Call Waiting" facility. Any incoming calls will disconnect you from your Internet Service Provider. This can be frustrating if you are near the end of downloading a huge file!

  1. A good mix of education and fun to make learning the academics so much more fun for the children.

The download site for most of the shareware (listed on this page) is in Singapore. For alternative sites, please check out
