My daughter had an iTouch since she was 4 and she loves it. My middle daughter got her an ipod nano. The oldest could care less. lol if he wants only music, the nano, itouch if he wants games and music.
Children should only play with toys their own age. They don't need anything that grown-ups use, until they reach the age of 13. If you spoil your children, then you will only end up with a brat. My aunt is the mother of 2 teenagers with the worst attitudes that I have ever seen. She spoiled them ever since they were children. Now all they do is bug her for more things and treat her like crap. If you're caring parents who wouldn't like a little spoiled brat, then reconsider this.
