Next up we have a couple of products that are targeted towards older children. These are products that offer a little more functionality, with a few extras thrown into the mix. We were also impressed by the selection of different versions available from CHUYI.

Quiet click uses cushioning technology hidden beneath the clicks to completely muffle any noise from clicking. Logitech claims there’s around 90pc less noise than on a traditional mouse and I can well believe it. The Silent Plus is Logitech’s only device that employs quiet clicking, but it feels like such a revelation you have to wonder why the company hasn’t adopted it as standard across all its mice.

Best Computer Mouse For Kids

If you’re in the office, a wireless mouse can help keep your desk tidy. A wired mouse has an excellent reaction time and ensures that there is no delay or lag between moving or clicking the mouse and the onscreen cursor reaction. A wired mouse draws power directly from the computer or laptop, which means that no additional power sources such as batteries are required. Gamers normally choose a wired mouse as they have a greater DPI rating than a wireless mouse. DPI is a measure of how sensitive a mouse is and a mouse with a higher DPI will react to smaller movements. It is a hand operated input device that controls and navigates an on screen cursor.

Chording keyboards only have a few keys that you press in combination to generate letters, numbers and other keys. They work well for one-handed users with independent movement in their fingers. A separate number pad is normally used with a compact keyboard and can be moved out of the way when not needed. It can also be placed either side of the keyboard, which can be helpful for left-handed users. Make sure your wrist is straight while you are using it and that it is close enough to you so that you don’t need to stretch to reach it.

Our Head of Ergonomics, Laura Milnes, provides useful insights into what you should be looking for with your computer mouse selection. The correct computer mouse selection – the style of device and position you have it in – is essential in creating a comfortable workstation. When looking for a computer mouse for a very young child, there are often simplistic color pallets or cute designs which your child will love. In general, younger children should stick with small mice that are easy to grip.

The mouse or trackball allows you to move the on screen cursor around and open programs and files with a simple click or tap on the touchpad. Bend it back into shape and it becomes a deceptively comfortable mouse. Both the wired and wireless versions of Logitech’s Pro G mice are excellent options, but it’s the wireless one that particularly stands out. Otherwise, it’s a fairly no frills mouse with just five buttons, and isn’t suited to gaming, but for day-to-day computing it’s a great choice. Wireless mice are more convenient but can often be heavier and more expensive.

The flagship feature of this mouse is that it can switch between up to three computers at the tap of a button – hence the ‘Triathlon’ name. Which is all well and good, but who has three computers to switch between? The slightly more useful button is the just underneath that blue one.
