I for one don’t like to buy expensive gadget or game consoles for my kid – for she is only 8 yrs old. So what made me change my mind and bought her a mini iPad – you asked. Well, I was convinced by my online blogging friends that with the current app that Apple offers, Chloe might benefit from it – not only in playing games but also learning school work. So yes, I broke down and bought this for her for Christmas – PB wasn’t too keen on it – but since I wanted it for Chloe, he agreed. We couldn’t get it at Staples – because they didn’t have it in stock, so we ordered from Apple directly. It was easy and we even get to put on personalized engraving free of charge. The mini iPad took a few weeks to arrive – but we are happy about it.
