Ruby has had her iPad for four days, the past two of which she has woken up, wiped her sleepy little eyes and said, “I wanna play with my iPad.” It’s not only cute, but also a testament to the addictive qualities of Apple’s products. I’m not sure if Steve Jobs had my daughter’s demographic in mind when he designed the iPad, but he has certainly created an avid Apple fan.

Ruby loves playing with the various flash card apps that I have downloaded for her, most of which are free or only $.99. There are also some very cool books, like this free Toy Story read-along book, which features the character’s actual voices. I’m pretty sure we’ve only scratched the surface of this amazing device’s capabilities, so stay tuned for further updates as we explore the iPad more over the next few weeks.

    We’ve been thinking of an iPad for our son. My mom and uncle have talked about splitting one for him. I hope they do, I think he could get so much out of it. Glad Ruby’s enjoying hers.

      Hi Gina,
      I love your blog and can’t wait to read more! I hope you can get an iPad for your son. They are really amazing little devices. We were able to purchase ours using a program called the family support grant here in MN. I wonder if your state has a similar program? Wishing you the best of luck!
