Is the iPad a Winner among Children?

ANITHA on April 29, 2010

A New York Times article quotes " Young children think with their fingers and the "Toy of the Year" award goes to the iPad".   

The iPad's intuitive interface is truly a winner among kids. There are about 140,000 affordable software which include some tried-and-true children's options. Anyone who used iPod or iPhone screens to sketch/draw, Brushes is an app adapted for the larger screen iPad to let children develop their artistic skills.Reading stories becomes an experience when Dr.Suess or Mercer Mayer interacts with your child through the iPads page size screen through the eBooks. And the list goes on...

The iPad's long battery life (approx. 10 hrs) is another plus! Kids do not have to panic about the device dying while taking a test at school or using it in an interactive classroom session. 

Nowadays, Parents are always looking for electronic babysitters like iPhone so they can do their work or prepare a meal. For tweens, these devices are replacing TV/ DVD for entertainment because kids can choose to watch what they want. The iPad is no exception and is an ideal gadget for tweens and teens.

As an educational/entertainment gadget, kids can accidentally get exposed to harmful content on the internet. By wrapping the device with a CIPA-compliant( Child Internet Protection Act) filtering service like Mobicip, parents and educators can have peace of mind by making sure the harmful internet content is filtered before handing out the device to the kid. As the need and the desire for these devices are ever increasing, Mobicip for iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch ensures safe online experience for your entire family.

Kids deserve to use these mobile internet devices but in a safe manner!
