My 9 year old described this item to me saying she HAD to have it, ALL her friends had one. I told her she could use her allowance money to buy it even though we have a Kindle Fire and it sounded to me like we had some apps that did the same thing it would do. Anyway, she got it and played with it for a day or so. It's now gathering dust and she admitted that it wasn't as much fun as she thought it would be. Our Kindle has apps with which you can draw in multiple colors, effects, and styles, in addition to saving and emailing them. So this device is one color and you can't save anything. I sort of don't get it. But it's "ok" and maybe fun for certain times. But if you have a kid with a tablet of any kind, this is a step back. For younger kids maybe it makes more sense.
