Good or bad idea?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I want to get my four year old a tablet. She loves playing games and taking pictures. I can get one fairly cheap for around 150$. Is this a bad idea?

She has a leap pad. It SUUUUUCKS .

Quoting Syphon:

 Tablets are pretty easy to break....maybe a Leap Pad or a Leapster would be better. They are really durable.

What apps did you get? I've been trying to find some for ds and there's so many apps to try to go through.

It's a great idea. My sister is 4 and I downloaded some learning apps on my iPhone. She loves them and does great. I'd buy her a tablet but my mom won't let me. My moms old school.... She's 47.

I wouldn't spend 150 though! You can get one for half that price and for a 4 year old I would.

Thanks everyone! She loves playing games on my phone, so I think I'll do it

I just searched "Pre-K" and picked a few of the higher rated ones. I only got the free ones though. She likes Flow, but that's not really educational. And i have one called dress up princess!, it's a knockoff of Disney princess because she loves to play the dress up games online.

It's not a bad idea if you can afford it and don't mind her playing it. Get insurance.

if you want to, go for it.  i got my 4yo a nexus 7 tablet for christmas.  i've already configured it and created her own user profile so i can control what she has access to (one of the main reasons why i decided with the nexus 7).
