Data at their finger tips
While my tablet doesn't have a binky attached it's fairly drool and drop proof. I have an otter case on the tablet and phones. My kids used phones or tablets to look at pictures, watch short TV trailers, you tube videos and play educational (and not so educational) games since they could sit up. Now that my oldest can spell, the sky is the limit as she uses the web for her encyclopedia whether it's to learn where Brazil is or how to draw a panda. My toddler can use the tablet about as well as I can. Young kids today expect data at their fingertips. In just a minute is way too late. Of course this has led to interesting conversation that my parents never had to have, like why you can't post a picture of your siter on the toilet and you shouldn't post where you in your lego tutorial.
