The parties that just won the elections in Mauritius are going to introduce the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program with the objective to "transform how children are taught by giving them access to modern technological tools which will help them to better understand Information Technology"

Smash Fit for Kids is changing the way children think about their health and fitness. With the capacity to record calories and measure exercise, Smash Fit for Kids is the first calorie counting tool on the market for children aged 2-16 years.

The toys were boxed Motorola Xoom tablets and every child between the age of four and eight got one.
