Computers for babies

VINCI_LifestyleA computer for young children

A company (you can visit their website here) is offering a new product called the Vinci Tab: a tablet computer specially designed for babies and children. The tablet comes with videos, games, stories and a diary for parents to record important milestones in a child’s development.

The company says that the computer allows young children to be introduced to technology, which they will need for the rest of their lives at the same time as engaging with other learning activities, such as learning numbers and sorting pictures into categories.

Have a look at the company’s website, and then tell us what you think. Is this a good thing, or not? If you have a child, would you think of buying it for them? Why or why not?
