Does your LO like to use the computer? I got a month's trial to abcmouse.com for Ellie and she loooooooooooooooooves it. Anytime I sit down at my computer now she climbs up in my lap and asks for it. Makes it a little hard for me to get any playtime. But I think I'll go ahead and start paying the $8 a month for it. It definitely seems worth it and I think she is learning from it.

MAggie loves the computer but I've been so reluctant to move her on to one.

She's obsessed with my office though, and gets up and pretends to type on my laptops and keyboard.

I've tried a couple cheapy ones with little games on them, but they haven't been interactive or colourful like a regular internet game so she's totally snubbed them. She loved the nanny's ipod and smart phone games. So I'm tossed with deciding whether or not to get her a leap pad, or pull on of our old beat up computers out so she can bang away at something more engaging.

We have an old laptop that we let the kids play on and they also play on the iPad. Isaac absolutely loves the iPad.

Ellie loves my iPad too and we gave her DH's old iPhone to use as an iPod. She's a little technophile!

Tommy doesn't really use the computer at all. I am thinking of giving him an innotab for Christmas though.

She will watch videos but that is about it. I am trying to hold off for awhile.

I actually just bought a Flash browser app for my iPad and now Ellie can do abcmouse by herself on the iPad.

She uses it to watch Dora episodes on Netflix. She's only really interested in it when her sister's on it, playing a game though.
