Since DH works in IT, we've always got spare laptops around. DH and I each have one, and so does DD, and we've got a spare that we hook up to the TV so that we can watch Hulu and Netflix on the TV.

DD has had her own laptop since she was about 2. She can navigate a computer better than some adults I know. She has access to the kid's movies and cartoons on Netflix, and she mostly goes on ABCmouse.com - a really great educational website that I highly recommend. She also has icons on the desktop for her nighttime lullabies that she falls asleep to, and a few cd's that came with books so she can read along to them.

Since she has the laptop I've never felt the need to get her a tablet. It's not really portable for car trips and whatnot, but honestly she's so plugged into technology at home, I think she's fine just reading books or playing with toys when we're out.
