  • My son (who is now 4) has been playing games for the past few years. We started out with VTech Smile, Leapfrog and such and he's also played a few games on Playstation.

  • My daughter is 5 years old, and has just now started to show an interest in video games. We have the whole assortment at home for her older brother but she still doesn't play any of them.

  • When he was about 6, and he has not stopped since, but now he is 22 and he can buy his own game and systems, of course he still lives with me, but at least he is going to college and working...

  • Ximon started at 2 almost 3.
    V tech never was his thing, the graffics were and are chessy, he prefered computer games like sprout.

    now he is watching utube videos and on the PS3 or ps2

    he is 5 years old and can do more on the internet than i could ever expect.

  • 2 and 4 - they got the v-smile cyber pocket for christmas so all the games are educational. And the 4 year old has played games on the computer/internet under adult supervision to make sure she doesn't stray where she shouldn't.
