Putting the cost aside for a moment, what do you think would be the minimum age that a child would benefit from an iPad?

I understand that there are apps for tinies, but I'm thinking of the need for fine motor control and the robustness of the iPad.

I'd say pretty young. One? Certainly by 2.

And you can get anti-gook covers for them too, can't you?

My cousin is thinking of getting one for her eldest's 4th birthday, but she has Rett syndrome and her fine motor control is non-existent. Flying fists and heels, involuntary hand and arm movements. I must admit, I'm not convinced.

We just recently got the Ipad mini for Aiden and he is 4. We like the mini because it's smaller and easier for him to maneuver than the bigger one. We did invest in getting him an Otterbox case for it and I'm thankful we did because it's already been dropped a dozen times.
