My 16 month-old (like most I would assume) is infatuated with the gadgets in our house. He is particularly interested in mommy and daddy's laptops. I was looking at the toy laptops offered from vtech, leapfrog, etc. and was wondering if anyone had experience with them and if they are interactive enough to hold the attention of a child who has already mastered ejecting things from DVD players and game machines?

We have the VTech Baby's Learning Laptop, and for being a product "for babies" it is surprisingly complicated. Our nine-month-old pretty much just opens and closes it all day. But it does seem to have a lot of options, and a lot of music.

Your 16-month-old might be a bit old for this, but I would still recommend it, and I know my son Bryan will love it once he understands it does more than open and close.

My kids have a Fisher Price Fun 2 Learn Laughtop. It has held up very well and both my 5 year old and 2 year old have fun playing with it.

I like the idea of it being something they can enjoy at an older age as well. Thanks.
