iPad: Like Crack Cocaine for Kids

Continuing along from yesterday's post about kanji-study apps and the previous day's app review by a toddler, this post is just some cute (to me) pictures of the kids playing Air Hockey on the iPad.

We try not to let the kids do too much with computer games, but it was the day Josh and Jena were returning home, so wanted to indulge them a bit. They knew air hockey from previous real-life experiences, such as this from last week...

One comment so far...

I used to love airhockey. I wonder how much those tables go for used.

They cost about five square meters of available floorspace (which is to say, beyond reach). —Jeffrey
