Do I need to get...
November 19, 2012 at 8:09 AM
An amazon gift card or anything for my daughter who's getting a kindle fire for Christmas? We are apple people but can't justify an iPad for a 5 year old...so should we get her a gift card of some sort to buy stuff? Thanks ladies!

    If you need money to buy apps for it then yes. My 5 year old son has an ipad and he loves it.

    There are some free games and books but mostly you have to pay for them. I would include a gift card.

    Thats a great idea!! A couple years ago thats what we did for my dad. I was told no gifts for adults this year but I might get him a 20 dollar amazon card... he is seriously ADDICTED to his kindle... I mean he takes it EVERYWHERE!!!! He left it at my house a couple weeks ago and my mom said it was TERRIBLE until I returned it... lol

    What about the new mini iPad? I know nothing about it, but I know it's cheaper. I'm also an apple person.

    I am getting my kids kindle fires as well and we are going to preload stuff on it for them. I have a kindle fire so I know what they like and what they don't. We also bought them each their own case and such as well. Also a lot of games are free but books are around $1-10 depending on the book and then if you want the books that read to them they are like $5.
