JS KidPix: a free bitmap drawing program for kids

In 1989, Craig Hickman released a drawing program called Kid Pix for the Macintosh. Hickman said that his son inspired him to create it after struggling with MacPaint and he wanted something that was simpler to use for all children. Naturally, you can’t get it nowadays but we now have a JS-powered version of KidPix which is free to use. And you can save your creations to share with the world!
