Strong Man kids keyboard is a widely-known dinosaur-shaped child's keyboard from Strong Man, sold under a number of brands.
The kids keyboard is a standard Strong Man SMK-8851 compact chassis fitted into a custom case. Both PC and Macintosh versions manufactured. The keyboard is green, with pastel shade keycaps in a variety of colours; a matching mouse is included in the package.
The product name is unclear. Strong Man referred to the Mac version as the "SMK-KIDS Board". Their PC keyboards page appeared to refer to it as "Next generation young Keyboard", but the Wayback Machine did not preserve the accompanying photograph.
The keyboard has been confirmed to have Alps.tw Type T1 switches in at least one instance. Strong Man themselves described the switches of the unconfirmed PC version as "Advanced mechanical Key Switch", on a page that referred to other switches as "Japan Alps Mechanical Tactile". Based on attempts to translate alps.tw's write-up, and judging by photos of KB-8851, it may also use alps.tw Type T5 switches.
