  1. Allow the mouse to create shapes

    My son has requested that he be able to create shapes with the mouse circles.

    He was trying to create a heart with the circles from the mouse trail but wasn't able to and he really wanted to be able to create hearts and other shapes with the mouse.

    • Hunt for the sound mode.

      A special mode where all sounds are disabled except for one random key. Baby will accidently find it at some point and *may* be enticed to keep looking for it. *May* actually help with baby co-ordination (probably not) but could be fun to watch.

      • KeySmash API

        You have gone to great lengths to grab every possible input via keyboard and mouse - why not package that up as a nice API that folks can use to build other apps like Teen-Smash, Geri-Smash, Spouse-Smash - but seriously - it would allow people to build nice kiosk style apps and make sure no mischief is going on.

          That’s totally the idea. Note the other feedback item on “Scripting Functionality.” It’d be cool to be able to create other applications. I’d love to turn BabySmash into a “Speak N’ Spell” where folks could write scripts to do the logic.

        • Update for Windows 10.

          On my Windows 10 laptop the application is not full screen. You can still see the Windows task bar.

          This allows a player to exit the otherwise "safe" playing environment of the application.

          • support dual monitors

            add support so the movement works between monitors smoothly, you can move between now, just not carry mouse clicks through.

            • Incorporate DOS Balloons ideas...

              When I was raising my first 2 children (16 and 14) years ago, I used a DOS program which displayed different colored balloons based on the keys pressed (i.e. G=Green, P=Purple, etc.). Non-mapped keys generated random colored balloons. There were several cool features that I would like to see in BabySmash (which my third child - 15mos - is now using). (1) Add an all-balloons feature. Kids love them!, (2) for variety, add the balloons/letters/numbers/shapes/images in random sizes when the key is pressed (the DOS program used 3 random sizes, I believe) , (3) fire the new images/sounds on keydown…

              • solicit feedback from early childhood teachers

                developers shouldn't be the only people driving feaures in babysmash. I think you should put out a call for early childhood pro's to give feedback on the app so we can make the learning experience even better for the babies!!

                  Great idea! I’m thinking that the best way to solve the sound idea is to let parents record their own, what do you think?

                • Keep track of Caps Lock, Num Lock, and Insert settings.

                  When my son finishes playing, I occasionally find myself typing in caps, or find the number pad keys not behaving as I expected. I haven't really confirmed a problem with the Insert key, but I thought I'd mention it just in case. All these keys are basically "settings", so it would be nice if you could protect them from Baby Smash.

                  • BabySmash Autostart

                    I need BabySmash to start automatically when my computer goes idle. My 1 year old attacks my keyboard when I take a bathroom break ect. If it could start on it's own while I'm away it would save my computer. She has erased documents and all sorts of things by her smashing!

                    • How about making the righte mouse button erase the dots the left mouse button creates?

                      It's somewhat irritating that the dots never fades away.

                                        All the properties like shape names, colors, etc. could be recorded by the user.
                                        So, language problem would be solved.
                                        And program should be more personel.
