Apple (AAPL) iPads Become Favorite Toys of Kids

Much more than what adults can do with an Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPad, kids are finding it a great adjunct for their games and other applications. Toymakers are taking advantage of the situation and rolling out new ways in which kids can derive fun from using the iPads for their games.

Whether it is a free Disney app that allows kids to drive around on different courses by moving the car across the iPad screen or whether Crayola makes it convenient for kids to doodle on the iPad using its iMarker just like using a crayon on a coloring book, kids are finding a lot of avenues to play around.

The iPad also allows Tweens to enjoy their favorite Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez tunes on a Disney microphone that creates a karaoke machine out of the tablet. Moreover, teens can fly technology accessories company Griffin’s toy helicopter by using the iPhone as a remote control.

Toymakers have taken advantage of the versatile applications of the iPad and made it and the smartphone into playthings for kids. Their commercial rationale is based on the premise that with high unemployment rate and a weak economy, parents would not mind spending on toys for their kids that use devices like the iPad that they already have or want to have for themselves.

My kids love playing with my iPad. They love playing the Disney app and there are so many other apps that you can download for free. The app that my kids enjoy the most is the DISH Remote Access app. With the Sling Adapter hooked up to my employee account through DISH Network I have access to all our subscription channels and DVR recordings on my iPad. The kids can watch all their favorite shows live from anywhere we can get a Wi-Fi connection. They love using this when we are in the car or when I make them run errands with me. Another one of their favorite apps is the PBS app. If I knew they would be careful with it I would definitely buy them one for themselves instead of having to steal mine.
