 LOGITECH ANNOUNCES KIDZ MOUSE FOR THE MACINTOSH,
 THE FIRST MACINTOSH COMPUTER MOUSE FOR CHILDREN
 FREMONT, Calif., June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Logitech Inc., international market leader in input technology, today introduced Kidz Mouse for the Macintosh, the first Macintosh computer peripheral product developed specifically for children. Kidz Mouse is also available in a PC version.
 Ergonomically designed to fit smaller hands and look like a friendly "mouse," Kidz Mouse is an entry-level pointing device that makes it easy and fun to use a computer for homework, games, or educational software. It provides the control and precision of a grown-up mouse in a comfortable, appealing shape for children. Selling at a suggested retail price of $79, the Macintosh-compatible Kidz Mouse will be available in July through Logitech dealers and distributors.
 "Kidz Mouse demonstrates Logitech's overall product development philosophy of providing a choice of high-quality, individualized peripheral products for a wide range of users," says Pierluigi Zappacosta, president and CEO of Logitech.
 Kidz Mouse operates with Macintosh Classic or above. It is easy to install and features two button "ears" that act as one button, so children can press either ear for desired results. With its special adapter, Kidz Mouse can be used without affecting any mouse already installed on the system. The mouse is designed to withstand years of rough treatment and Kidz Mouse carries a lifetime warranty and is backed by Logitech's extensive service and support program.
 "We developed this product in response to the growing use of computers in both the home and classroom," said Vanessa Mills, product marketing associate at Logitech. "Research has shown that a child- tailored mouse helps children master an important computing skill in today's graphical computing environment. Kidz Mouse also reflects Logitech's commitment to humanizing the computer by providing more natural means of human-to-computer communication."
 Logitech manufactures and markets a variety of input and pointing devices and related software applications for both IBM and Macintosh platforms. Logitech International, the financial holding company for the Logitech Group, is traded publicly in Switzerland on the Zurich and Geneva exchanges. With operational headquarters in Fremont, the group maintains manufacturing facilities in Fremont; Hsinchu, Taiwan; and Cork, Ireland; and offices in major cities in the United States, Europe, and the Far East.
