My daughter wants a iPod touch so she can FaceTime her friends but I am thinking an iPad mini would be a better option? What are your opinions if you have both? She is 10 yoThanks original.gif

Ipad mini to my mind is he Just Right size. Ipad too big, iPod touch too small.

My 10yo is getting an ipad mini, my 6 yo is getting a touch.  We have already bought the mini and had a sneaky look and it looks great so I would probably say the mini

We have all iDevices in this house and I would say the iPad Mini if you have the money. The iPod touch I think is a tad small. The iPad, although a great machine to use, is a little to big for little hands. The iPad Mini seems just about the right size due to weight. It's half the weight of a regular iPad but the screen isn't half the size. DH has replaced his iPad2 with the iPad mini and is loving it for work.
