I gave my 2 year old my Acer a100. Its more than 150 but its a good smooth tablet. You can also maybe get a nook and put cm7 on it.

she has coloring books and colors all the time but when we are at church or on a trip the tablet is great, and she can do so much on it.. she is only allowed on my every so often and for a limited time but sadly my nephew in kindergarten has used an ipad @ school so i see nothing wrong with getting her one.

Howzit bruizer!!

Welcome to the forums!

Check out these bruizer:

Archos Child Pad plays to parental pockets with a £99 price tag (Wired UK)

That should be just right for your 4 year old daughter

Cheers!

Thanks, I was trying to find one on Engadget they did a review for. Think that was the one.

I'm moving this to the Android Lounge.

This isn't the "how someone else should raise their kids" thread or a trolling contest.

They have a tablet request, please stick to that only.

Thank you.

Try that tablet from AT&T. Its water RESISTANT, not water PROOF. I forgot the name of it though. Its that commercial where the little baby is playing with a tablet and the parents are spelling out what they are saying so the baby doesn't understand what they are saying. But I'm sure you do t wanna sign up for a contract just for your baby.

Just a thought.

I would say either Leafpad or inexpensive tablets such as kindle fire, root it so you can get more apps from Android market.

a 2nd hand transformer!!, my 3 yr old loves 'wheres my water' or as he calls it, the crocodile game. His eye to hand movements hav noticably got better after playing this game, his real world drawing skills are much better... ignore anyone who suggests that the mere mention of a child playing with a toy that was not designed in 1950 is somehow a bad parent is redic!, everything in moderation....
