I have a question, my niece is 3, yet she is developmentally slow. I was saving up to buy her an Innotab, basically it's a kids Ipad ($80). What I like about it is that it is a photo/video player and a MP3 player that has a slot for SD card. We live in VA, she is in FL, and I thought this was a great way for her to "see" and interact with us, and also gives her a chance to "play" with something that feels "big-girl". However, my Brother (her dad) basically told us no way, it's too advanced for her, and that they refuse to let her have it. Mind you, it is made for kids her age, and even though she can't play with the apps and games, she can look at the pics/vids. So, any ideas what I can get her? They don't really let her play with toys, I've bought her a shopping cart with food last year, they put it in storage. I bought her a Power Wheels, they refuse to charge it. I bought her some Dora dolls and they put them up on a shelf. I'm at a loss, I really wanted to get her something that she could "see" us and know who we are. The only thing we've ever bought that they let her use is DVD's. They shut her in the bedroom and she only watches TV basically all her waking hours. So, anyone have any ideas?
