I am going to try and rationalize buying the Little Tikes Young Explorer. This gigantic plastic juggernaut is essentially a desktop computer covered in bright plastic, preloaded with educational software. This would be an awesome idea for any child...if it wasn't $2,600, that is.
You could buy five desktop computers for the price of the Little Tikes Young Explorer. Don't get me wrong, a child's mind is a terrible thing to waste, but that child's mind won't make back the $2,600 you drop on this. If I hit it big I'll buy this for my unborn child. More than likely he/she will have to settle for a hand-me-down brick laptop. Father of the year right here.
