Well my husband and i bought our kids a kindle fire for Christmas. We decided to give it to them early for educational use. We got it for them to share, Well did our three year old fool us!!! She loves it and doesn't want to share at all! lol, So my oldest daughter soon to be eight, Said she might just buy her own with her birthday money. I told her i thought the was a good idea!!! LOL If you haven't bought your kiddos a kindle you might she think about it they will love it!!!
