KeyWack is a game for people with babies or small children who like to sit at their parent’s computer and bang the keyboard or click the mouse.

KeyWack prevents children from accidentally changing programs or documents, and makes banging even more fun by drawing random shapes and playing sounds as the keys are whacked. You can also click with the mouse to place a shape at a particular location.

You can use the program for educational purposes by using:
Actual Keys (when a key is pressed the actual key - rather than random key - is spoken and displayed).

It operates full screen, so press Command-Q to Quit. The other options are Command-B (Black/Grey), Command-W (Wipe screen), Command-S (Sounds on/off) and Command-R (Rotate letters).

Huge disappointment

I installed this for my daughter and after several frustrating minutes of playing with settings, the only way I could get this to do anything was to turn on the option to display ascii characters. My daughter just turned 1 and I’d like her to see the letters and numbers. I’m not at all happy and wish I could get my money back.


My 7 month old loves it so much, I can’t get my computer back from him. He whacks the keys and random stuff happens. What could be better? …. When I downloaded it, it didn’t work.Just a blank screen and when you whacked it, nothing happened. I was very unhappy. But 2 days later I tried it again and it worked. No idea why. … Command Q turns it off. Sometimes my baby whacks the keys and it pops over onto another screen or window, so you kind of have to watch while he’s doing it.
