I think there is a market for those types of products, obviously for younger kids, say 5 years or under.
I think that after a certain age, such as 7-7, kids are more independent and able to handle most things, either due to their own curiosity or simply their interest in the product.
As Paul Barry puts wonderfully in his Linux for Kids Experiment article in Linux Journal, there is no point in asking “is Linux ready for kids”; instead the question is “why not use Linux for kids.” I completely agree with his point, and say Linux is the system to go for the children. There are distributions and programs for every age and parents should not have any problems managing their kids’ computing experience.
I suggest all parents introduce their children to the Linux operating system; not because it is my personal operating system, but rather to introduce their young, unspoiled brains to freedom, openness and the ability to explore found in open source.

FYI, you can make new posts in these sections. You need to be aware that the first page you see when you click on these sections is the aggregated feed of all the sub-sections. For instance, in Community Projects, you must actually go to Idea's and Thoughts, Remastersys, or mintCast before you can actually post. The main page of Community Projects shows the active posts of all three of those subforums, so you cannot post directly.
* Moved to Community Projects -> Ideas & Thoughts subforum as intended by OP
