Heh, my daughter started using tuxpaint between 1 and 2.  Her main complaint
was that my mouse was too large.  She would stare at the mouse, stare at her
hand, then say "ouch".

So I'd recommend:
* Buy a wireless "travel" mouse (kid sized) for $12 from radio shack.

Of course, if it's small enough (and especially if wireless) it could be a choking hazard.... those things aren't marketed as kids' toys.  For all we know they could have lead in the plastic.
