This question came to me whilst i was reading a review on a toy i was thinking of buying my son for his fourth birthday! A woman said her three year old grandson played with it for five minutes then left it to go back and play on his DS.
In my opinion i think that 3 years old is way too young to have a DS!
My son actually asked me to get him one ( His cousin has one) but I said no..
1. Because hes toooo heavy handed with his toys and I bet it would last all of 10minutes.
2.Id rather him use his imagination and creativity when playing
Ive seen a few kids at birthday partys just sat playing them and not wanting to go and play then acting as if it was a chore to do so when asked!
Call me old fashioned but i miss the days when we would ride our bikes all day, climb trees, when a cardboard box could be a den, a castle, a rocket what ever we imagined lol
So how young do you think is too young for video games? and with all the new tech out there ( t.v's, computers, consoles, handheld games) are we dulling our childrens imaginations??
Id like to know what other peoples ideas are on this :)
