I would not buy a tablet for a 4 year old. My 4 year old has an iPod touch but only because we didn't have anything else to do with it!

I thought those were just as expensive... still $500 or more...

see he wanted a ipod touch.. but these are cheaper and bigger and have more free apps.. he basically just wants it for angry birds and zoodles.. which will be nice cuz he wont run off with my phone..

I would never buy a 4 year old a tablet, they are not responsible enough to take care of it. JMO

I don't know much about that tablet...But my 4 year old son has an iPad and he absolutely loves it...Mostly for Angry Birds lol. My only advice would be something I'm sure you already know..which is that just because he has one does not mean he can play it all day long whenever he wants. He still has limits, and still has to earn play time on it. Have fun though! Those things are awesome for travel! =)
