Eikou Drawing Pad

Eikou Drawing Pad

Aside from using color pen and pencil, I also use this drawing pad for my drawings. I would like to share this great software with you.

Eikou drawing was developed primarily for babies under five years old to learn drawing and coloring on the computer.It is fun for children to experience different shapes and colors.

Now if you install the Big Mouth software, it already includes the Eikou Drawing Pad. Alternatively, (if you don't like the robot chatter box) you can download from here this quiet program as a separate software. (5Mb, it takes some time to download)
