At 26 months old, I bought my son a tablet (kindle fire) He loves it and plays it all the time. He taught himself ABCs and numbers with some of the apps, learned how to type his email & password for facebook account, and even reads a little bit(at least I am assuming he is reading because if he sees something on TV, he knows how to search for the same show on youtube without help. Now he is 34 months old and he wants a real computer. I'm wondering if I should get him one or not because his sister is 17 months old and is already playing with the kindle when he is not using it(she has learned a few letters of the alphabet already) , but often they fight over it and she loses because he is bigger. Some people have said he is too young for a computer, but I'm not sure why? Just because we didnt grow up with this stuff, doesnt mean a child shouldnt get to grow up with it, right? Anyone else buy their young kids electronics?
