    I love mine, but would get one with the 4G next time (it wasn't available when I got mine), and at least it doesn't have a keyboard for the little one to destroy like mine did with 2 of my laptops.  It's easier for them to operate than us, I'll tell you that much!  LOL!

    I let my 3 yo play games on my kindle fire! It is super easy, similar to the apple stuff!! You can do just about anything on a kindle that you can an ipad!! Plus it is way cheaper

    My 9 year old loves hers. She has an iPad and kindle fire, got the fire for her birthday and she loves reading on it.
