    I have this 5 year old granddaughter. She's a whiz with an iphone, she can surf as good as anyone I've seen. She was tested for school and has an IQ of 145. Her dad is a Microsoft Engr. and they got the iPad when it first came out. The wife and her always set there and play games on the iphone and have a great time, so part of my reason to buy the iPad was to let me play games with her. The iphone is just too small for me, so anyway she'e coming to spend the night tonight so I finally get to have that interaction myself. Maybe some wouldn't understand that logic but I'm looking forward to it. Anyway I just wanted to share.:)

    Ok, I'm holding on own. We downloaded Kid Art. It's OK, you can draw pictures and place animal icons on the picture then save the pic and then we emailed to her mom & dad. She got a big kick out of that. Score one for the iPad, first time I've ever been able to play a game with her.:)

    I don't know how this is appropriate, but it just came into my head.

    Parachute panic lite is so cool. We've had a great time with that. Ther're off to the coloring books now, the iPad is so cool. Worth the money, I don't care what anybody says.

    how cool is that.. I don't want my 5 yr old to be in front of mine ALL the time.. right now I have a fight with him and plants vs zombies on the pc... but I do want a few apps that will be good for him at doc office or other places like that and not a movie (also the 3 yr old)
