    The ToyRUs stores I go to in Manhattan and Queens, the place is crazy and is a mess. You see stuff all over the place and kids hogging on to the kinect, ps3 or xbox in the store. You dont even have the chance to try it out. I cant imagine a ipad being sold there. There will be "MORE" crazy kids hogging them.

    Can you imagine all the kids walking out of the store with an iPad 2 and you're on line like "Are you serious?" You get to the front to see if they have more and then they break your heart with the words "Sorry. We're out of stock."

    LOL that will be funny!

    I know the iPad is great and everything, but it shouldn't be considered a toy for children to use!

    I do, however, let me niece (6 years old) use my iPad and she hasn't destroyed it yet. Cat piano amuses her for hours
    Actually it's a genius idea. A 6 yr old pounds away at the iPad2, banging the screen, shaking it, dropping it, spilling grape koolaid all over it. Sooner rather than later it craps out from the abuse. So what happens? Little Timmy throws a huge fit and cries and kicks and screams. Mommy has to take it to the Apple store to get it fixed or replaced.

    Final Result: more money for Apple compliments of Little Timmy.

    Why not? From reading the news and watching the 1st 48 a lot of them already have guns and do drugs! Why not give them the ipad.

    Joking people.... I could care less if McDonalds gets it.

    Haha, who hasn't seen the "Year of the iPad" video by Apple? iPad can be used from the medical field to helping kids in education <.<. iPad demographic is pretty much... "Everything and everyone..."

    I honestly don't think any average person has $500 (minimum) to spend on a device for their child that the screen can easily be cracked from a small drop. But hey, if you have money like that to throw around then why not just buy two??

    So does my 2 year old.

    I can see that as a great move. Picture your in the store with your young child and they see the pad with angry birds on it? Or cartoon network? Classic move.

    Even if this seems to be a bit outdated but in my oppinion children shops like Toys r Us or other comanpys should not sell such an device like the iPad.

    It's the same with Computer Games, there are too much children out there that start to play Games with around 8 Years or even earlier. I've seen one of those kids by myself, being a 12 Year old loner for the simple reason that he sits infront of the xBox, iPad, Computer the whole day.

    On the other hand the iPad has a good amount of other features and is not only made to be used for playing games all-night-long. It's great for people that have to complete tasks while being on some kind of vacation, business tasks or writing.

    Like it has been said already, kids are getting fat, lazy and unhealthy. Even worser, being loners.
    iPad rocks!
