Recently LO’s school sent home their ABC Mouse subscription info for parents in LO’s class. The plan was they would start using it in his room and suggest an activity that parents could reinforce at home. Of course I quickly activated ABC Mouse on my end, tried it out with LO on my iPhone and realized my screen is too dang small for this. DH looked into a tablet for LO to use and he pre-ordered the new Amazon HD 8. Then, two days later I talked to one of LO’s teachers and she told me they don’t even have a TV in their room to begin ABC Mouse.

Well the New Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet, 8" HD Display, 32 GB is still on it’s way, anyway. What do I need to know about this tablet (I’m not tech savvy) to make this fun for my 2.5 year old to use? What should I avoid so he doesn’t enjoy too much? Do you have any kid’s tech rules at your house?
