I bought this for my son when he was 4. I hoped that he wouldn't outgrow it to quickly because he likes other games on playstation now also, but to my surprise he will be 6 this year and still loves his innotab. He knows how to work it better than me. He loves that he can record his own videos and take pictures, and paint. Also there are so many different apps you can download to it online. Personally I like the learning apps the best but there are so many to choose from. It is very lightweight and comes with headphones so I dont always have to hear the game. It has lasted for almost 2 years with a young boy so it is obviously very durable and able to withstand being dropped occasionally. i love getting on it and watching the videos that he recorded by himself two years ago. Great way to keep some memories also. I would would recommend an Innotab for any child.
