It's an iPad, only smaller. He/she probably wants to play games and access the Internet on it.

Is it a reasonable present for an 11 year old? I thought touch screens rotted their minds?

Well I don't have an eleven year old, so can't really say. I know a lot of people say no way, but I can't see the harm myself as long as you have suitable controls on spending and properly supervised Internet access. Expensive though.

It's a very good present for that age. She can access internet, have music on it , camera etc etc. very useful gadget.

I think the ipad minis are really good value.
