The Typer Island Adventure

Educational, Entertaining & Motivating!
Typer Island is an exciting place for kids to learn to type. Follow the route to the Castle, traveling in five unique lands. You'll experience exciting typing challenges, learn new keys, build speed and accuracy, and play fun, multi-level games. Inside the Castle, you'll find more engaging activities and games to help you refine your keyboarding skills. No other typing program is this fun or challenging!


Explore the Lands of Typer Island! Kids visit The Old West, On the Water, In the Air, Over the Edge, and Under the Sea. In each land they take a series of lessons, challenges, and a skill test—plus games! When they pass the skill test with 86% accuracy of their goal words per minute (which they set), they advance to the next land – until they reach the Castle!


Play Ziggy! Type words fast to turn the top of each pillar a new color-before Ziggy get's zapped by the bad guys. Try to win all 4 levels!

Play Wild West! Type the words quickly to make them disappear before the birds drag them away! Advance to play inside Bill's Soda Shop.
