I hope this is the right place to start this thread. I bought Ipad2 for me. I have not enough funds available for my child at this moment who has an pretty impressive laptop anyway. He is a iphone junkie so and I know he will try to snatch "My new toy" . We are only 3 in my family and we have iphones. I myself got it more or less because iphone is sometimes just to small for me. I wondered so how many got their children the ipad (or handed down Ipad1) and what ages. I also wondered how many have Special needs children with the ipad and what a difference it made in their lives?
