Very pleased little girl

Emily had hinted that she'd like a Nintendo DS for her birthday, but after pricing both the DS and the individual games, I started thinking an iPod Touch would be a better gift. The iPod Touch would be a music player, a camera, a video camera, a game unit, and will allow future use of the Internet for email and whatnot (I have her blocked out of the Internet portion for now, since she's only 9!!). For the same price as the DS and only one game, she gets TONS of stuff with the iPod Touch! I'd already purchased a bunch of game apps for my iPhone, so she was set up with a bunch of games without costing me anything extra. I probably wouldn't have thought of it as a gift, but her friends Katie and Emily recently got one, as well as her cousin, Ali, and I've heard nothing but rave reviews...

Emily was more than a little excited:

Before we gave it to her, we loaded it with all her music and all the appropriate game apps so she could play around with it immediately:

Unfortunately, now her brothers think THEY should get one for their upcoming birthdays as well...

Hmmm you've given me a lot to think about. Abby very much wants a DS as well. I've put her off for two birthdays and a Christmas so far. She's forever borrowing Mike's ipod... so hmmmm. Much to think about.
