My 4 year old used to cry for his brother's ipad when I first bought it (my older son is 12). I ended up getting a kindle for my little one and he loves it. I love that the kindle didn't cost as much as an ipad.

DD (2) has an iPad. She almost never uses it, so it was a waste of money to us.

Why not? It could be a family iPad. It's like a tv to me. My daughter uses my iPod and iPad.

DD loves it for games (age appropriate) and YouTube (we monitor her videos).
It is a family one though
