KidsEdge was a website developed by Knowledge Kids Network with characters from The Learning Company's properties, including Reader Rabbit, StarFlyers, and ClueFinders that included educational Flash and Shockwave mini-games. This CD-ROM included a year's free use of the website, which has since been discontinued and redirects to the LeapFrog website; however, it also includes several mini-games playable from the disc within the user's web browser and PDF activity sheets.

As a minimum requirement, I've tested the KidsEdge Travel Pack on a Macintosh Performa 6400/180 running Mac OS 8.6 with Internet Explorer 5.1.7 and the provided Shockwave 8.5 and Macromedia Flash 6 plug-ins. The only minor problem is that it runs a lot sluggish when using a 180 MHz PowerPC 603e processor, but otherwise, it's OK, and I can launch the "StartHere.html" successfully on Mac OS 8.6 without any problems I encountered after I tested this on a Mac Pro 8-core (2007) running Mac OS X 10.7.5 Lion two years ago!

Works on Intel Mac OS X 10.7.5 Lion with Shockwave 12.2.3 and the latest Adobe Flash 20. However, you will need to access the "www" folder on the CD on OS X Lion because when you run the "index.html" or "StartHere.html" it gets stuck at the part where you need to install software on your Mac before beginning (in which I already have on my Mac Pro 8-core 2007). On the "www" folder the "KidsEdgeCD.html" or something like that will run perfectly. The Installers are for the PowerPC OS X and are not Intel ready.
