Yesterday was my youngest son's third birthday and he got a kindle fire as one of his gifts. I have 4 kids ages 7 and under and each one has their own kindle fire now. I have had people tell me that it means my kids are spoiled or that it's stupid to spend that much money on kids that young, but I don't get why. It's just like a Gameboy or something when we were young! What do you think? I really don't understand the big deal!?
*Edit* looks like its not as big of a deal on here! Maybe it just is where i live because it's such a low income area.

We have a kindle fire for my kids and it's way better than a video game system plus it has a time monitor you can use which I love!

Both of mine have kindle fires. They're 5 and 8. I don't see the big deal.

My three year old has one.  I like that I can choose how much time he spends on it.
