What has happened? :(

36 replies 3 views Edited Dec 10, 2006
What has happened to kids today? I know this 6 year old kid that is asking for an iPod for christmas! AN iPOD!!! What ever happend to good ol' toys? I never owned a video game system till I was 9. And I never really "used" a computer till I was nine. I know somebody is going to reply to this thread saying, oh its the parents, they can get what they want, but the parents also dont want to get their kids electronics like an iPod. I blame it on advertising. There are too many commercials advertising cell phones for kids and crap. Who else agrees with me that kids need to play with real toys? I used to love legos when I was a kid. I never needed electronics.

its jus the evolution of society, cuz everything is electronic based.
i do think an ipod for a 6 year old is insane, thats jus a status thing..
but a gameboy or something like that would be fine

Totally agree.  But let's not limit this to Legos, how about just regular action figures?  Use your imagination kids, chances are you're not into music enough to really need an iPod, you don't have enough friends to need a cell phone, and you're not old enough to know how to really use any of them.

That 6 year old don't deserve to get an iPod.  He need Leapfrog as his christmas present.
