Gadgets that young kids can use are always great. I also think there is something to the theory that young children should not consistently be on screens. In the end, just playing some typeof game on a screen is not always great for a child's developement, and that is where Osmo comes in. Osmo allows children to play with REAL objects they can touch and feel digitally. You use a device with it more as a way to guide a child's experiance. It is not what they are truly playing with. All of their games are also beginning to teach children critical thinking skills like problem solving and organization which can be very difficult with young children.
