I agree that we need to work on some of our ideas rather than just
generating new ideas that then never get worked on.  Are any of us
skilled graphically?  For edutainment programs like those mentioned
above as well as the drill and practice and creativity (KidWriter, etc.)
programs some nice pictures can make a competent program much more
appealing, especially to younger students.
