  • None. My 10 year old got a DS Lite for Christmas when he was about 7. Within 3 months it had been taken away from him because he kept leaving it laying around and mouthing off to us.

    He got a Basic Kindle a couple years ago and is having issue keeping that too.

    A 7 year old and a 9 year old are NOT responsible enough for hi-tech electronics like that.

  • My Son (7) has an ipad & LOVES it! He plays educational games on it too!

  • I disagree Rosehawk. It depends on the kids maturity. DS has had a 3DS since he was 5 or so and has never lost it or damaged it. He takes very good care of it. So, yeah, some kids can't handle the responsibility at that age but some can.

    OP, I'd go with a Kindle.

  • iPod touch or an iPad

  • We bought a Nabi2 for the kindergartner and we've been happy with it. It's appropriate for her now, but it can also be added to so it will grow with her for several years.
