Software (and Appropriate Input Device) For a Toddler?

An anonymous reader writes “I have an 18-month-old who loves bright screens (TV and computer), loves loud noises, and loves to mash buttons. He targets my laptop with the button-mashing, and I sort of hate having to tell him ‘no’ when he wants to explore a computer. I was wondering if anyone knows of some fun (and maybe educational) age-specific PC software that also comes with an age-appropriate input device. I’ve seen those big-button devices in retail stores that seem to just hook up to the TV, and I’ve also seen some PC software that requires keyboard/mouse input, which does not seem like the right input device for a toddler.”
