My daughter is 2 and I'm going with an educational tablet so when I'm doing homework she can be learning to. I plan on setting limits on it, it will only be on for homework time, or 2 hours a day, orwhen we go somewhere in the car.



I think you just need rules I hate the little brats who are glued to their game boys they always hit!

I don't think it would be too young. I would personally wait till my daughter was a little older, but when she got one I would keep it put up and let her play with it for a certain amount of time only.



We have gotten Natalie (10 months) a puzzle, a walk/push toy, a basketball goal that lights up when you put the ball in it, a doll, a block set where they put the shapes in the holes, a stacking toy, a toy cell phone and a toy animal phone and a few other toys that play music.

DS is 7. He's getting a DS (he used to play mine and his sister broke it), a case for it, Legos, socks/undies and MAYBE one other thing. He's only allowed to play the DS in the car or occasionally during the week when ALL of his homework is done.



DD is 4. She's getting Legos, a princess castle for her little princesses, 2 Barbies, and something else (haven't decided what)
