Question for you about toys: Katy loves this laptop. She's obsessed with it. I think it's because she sees Brian and I click-clacking away on it so much, so she thinks it MUST be pretty important. She also loves toy laptops. If we're at a friends' house who has one, all self-control is out the window as she obsesses over it. When we go to the library, she makes a bee-line for the computer and stays there until I make her get up.
So I've looked at a couple of them. Some are just free-standing toys. And then some are actually USB keyboards that attach to your computer and then have software with educational games. Like this one. Seems pretty intense. It says it's for ages 6 and up, and it's pretty pricey. Plus you have to buy the software in addition to this piece. Does anyone have any recommendation for something similar that would be more geared toward younger kids and more economical?
Otherwise I'll just get her some more play-doh and call it a day.
