Would you buy an ipod for an 11 year old?

Normally I wouldn't, but there is a great sale on ipod nanos and my son will be traveling for two weeks this summer and am now thinking about buying one.
Would buy one?

  • why not...it's A LOT cheaper than buying her cds and a lot more convenient cause all your songs are there and you don't have to keep changing cds. as long as she takes care of it theres nothing wrong with an 11 year old having a portable music player

  • Yes. Why wouldn't you? When I was that age there was no such thing, but there were those big giant "walkmans" I had one of those well before 11... I don't see this as any different.

  • my 8 year old has an mp3 player, they are cheaper and her brothers like to break things. I wouldn't buy a nano, but that is me.
