It's all about expectation management, you see. If you make your kid think he can be president, he will grow up disappointed. Tell him he's headed for a life as an office drone and at least he'll be mentally prepared.
For a mere $2,500, daddy's little office drone gets all of this from Little Tikes' Young Explorer kiddie workstation:
Flat desk area
Left and right built-in mouse pads
Bench seat that fits two children and offers storage inside for supplies
Two locking cabinet doors
Computer wiring stores safely inside ventilated cabinet
Locking castors keep unit from rolling during use
Computer equipment features:
Think Centre PC
1GB RAM (minimum)
160GB hard drive (minimum)
Sound card and two external speakers
19-inch wide-screen flat-panel LCD monitor
Custom Little Tikes learning keyboard and tiny mouse (colors are subject to change without notice)
Computer warranty: one-year parts and labor
Preloaded educational software:

Boy, I really missed out on these 21st century toys when I was a kid!
