My dds dad wants to get her some type of learning computer type thing for Xmas and has asked me to pick one but I don't have a clue! She'll be coming up to 2. Any advice greatly received! Thanks

Rally? She's not even two yet - I'd get her toys to be honest, that she can play Ruth and use her imagination and make believe. She doesn't need any computing type of thing at all yet.

Tbh I doubt she will know the on and off switch alone let alone use it

How about:
- memo game
- puzzles (16/24 piece)
- magnetic board and letters/ numbers
- wooden till with toy money

This article seems to suggest the kindle fire is a good choice although I'm a bit doubtful about there being as many apps available as on iPad or android options. My kids have android tablets, samsung galaxys, I think there is a kids version or you could just buy an older model and a rubber case? There's lots of good apps (duplo do a lot of free ones which my 2 1/2 year old enjoys - he does spend more time playing with actual duplo before any of the technophobes jump on that) he also watches pingu on YouTube and the toca apps are good.
